Over the course of his career, Jonathan has negotiated and closed dozens of deals and funds in the private equity space with transaction values aggregating to tens of billions of dollars. He has led negotiations on behalf of both GPs and LPs with respect to the terms of investments of several billion dollars in funds with a variety of strategies across a broad array of asset classes and sectors, both in the capital aggregation and capital deployment stages of a fund’s life.
