Hauser Adds Investor Development Director

New hire follows the above target close of the firm's $300 million fourth fund in June 2023

Hauser Private Equity, a co-investor and fund manager, has added Hayley Long to its team as its investment development director.

At Hauser, Ms. Long will be responsible for managing relationships with the firm’s investors and partners, as well as capital for future funds.

Hauser Private Equity is a co-investor and a fund-of-funds investor. The firm invests in control and operationally focused lower-middle and middle market buyout funds that have from $250 million to $2 billion in capital commitments. Sectors of specific interest include healthcare, business and tech-enabled services, industrial and consumer. Hauser also selectively invests in growth equity and special situation funds.

Ms. Long has eight years of financial services and trading experience, including four years in funds management at asset managers Nuveen and PGIM, the investment management business of Prudential Financial. Ms. Long has her undergraduate degree in civil engineering and finance from Australia’s University of Queensland.

“I am delighted to announce that I have joined Hauser Private Equity as their Investor Development Director,” said Ms. Long. “Their impressive portfolio, track record, and an esteemed board of directors have generated tremendous appetite for the funds. I am honored to work with an industry leading group of high-net-worth investors and build upon the success of Hauser’s distinctive co-investment fund model.”

Hauser’s fourth fund, Hauser Private Equity Core Fund IV LP, closed above its $200 million target in June 2023 with $300 million of capital. Fund IV is expected to invest 75% of its capital in fund-of-funds opportunities and 25% in co-investments. Hauser began investing Fund IV in early 2022 and has already closed on 5 co-investments and 13 fund-commitments.

“We added over 50 new investors in Core Fund IV, which closed earlier this year,” said Mark Hauser, the founder and co-managing partner of Hauser Private Equity. “Hayley has joined our team to contribute to and develop growth plans for future core funds as well as provide additional resources for our existing high-net-worth investors.”

Hauser Private Equity was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in Cincinnati with additional offices in Los Angeles and Chicago.
