MSD Capital is a private investment firm that exclusively manages the capital of Michael Dell and his family. The firm, which is based in New York and has offices in Santa Monica and West Palm Beach, was formed in 1998.[3]

The principals of MSD Capital in 2009 formed MSD Partners, an investment adviser registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, to enable outside investors to invest in strategies that were developed by MSD Capital. Among other things, MSD Partners makes control equity and structured preferred investments through its MSD Private Capital Group.[4]

Founding[edit]

In 1998, Michael Dell recruited John C. Phelan and Glenn R. Fuhrman to form MSD Capital to manage his family's wealth. For nearly 20 years, Mr. Phelan and Mr. Fuhrman, the firm's co-founders, have served as co-managing partners of MSD Capital[5].

Management[edit]

MSD Capital has a dedicated investment team. According to the firm's statement on its website, Mr. Dell is not involved in its day-to-day operations.

Activities[edit]

According to information on MSD Capital's website, the firm has a broad investment mandate, focused principally on making investments across the globe in the debt and equity of public and private companies, real estate and other asset classes.

Based on the most recent Form 13F filings by MSD Capital, its holding of the equity of public companies include PVH Corp., the apparel company that owns brands including Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, and DineEquity, known for its IHOP and Applebee's restaurants[6][7].

Among MSD Capital's real estate holdings are the luxury resorts Four Seasons Maui[8] and Four Seasons Hualalai[9], both located in Hawaii.

In July 2016, it was announced that MSD Capital and MSD Partners would provide preferred equity financing to support WME | IMG in its acquisition of UFC, the professional mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, alongside strategic investors KKR and Silver Lake Partners[10].

In 2008, MSD Capital joined a consortium to acquire the assets of IndyMac Bank for around $13.9 billion, renaming it OneWest Bank[11].

In August 2017, MSD Capital partnered with TruAmerica to acquire the Florida-based multifamily community Sienna at Lake Vista for $66 million[12].
