While terms of the deal have not been disclosed, the investment will result in a minority ownership interest for the HMC-led group in GSV Asset Management. Proceeds will be used to enhance GSV’s ongoing investment activities, as well as to accelerate its strategic expansion into new business areas and geographies.
“We are very excited to partner with HMC Capital, a multi-billion dollar asset manager that brings a range of complimentary capabilities to GSV Asset Management,” says Michael Moe, founder of GSV. “GSV stands for Global Silicon Valley and our alliance with HMC reflects our shared commitment to create a premier global growth investing platform.”

Beyond its structuring and investment capabilities, HMC has partnered with leading global universities to offer curated education programs for its investor network – all part of a broader objective to cultivate the alternative investment asset class in South America and around the world.
“We could not be more pleased to develop a strategic partnership with Michael Moe and GSV,” says Felipe Held, Co-Founder and CEO of HMC Capital. “Michael is regarded as a leading global authority on growth investing and we look forward to capitalising on HMC’s global network of investment professionals, partners, and investors to add significant value to the GSV platform. At the same time, we are excited to expand HMC’s focus on alternative investments to include strategies that will target leading growth companies from across the Global Silicon Valley.”
