Jonathan Bloch has more than 15 years of experience in venture capital, private equity and alternative investments focused on large institutional investors specializing in operations, sophisticated fund formation issues and legal and regulatory compliance. Mr. Bloch works with real estate developers and energy infrastructure companies in negotiating, documenting and obtaining EB-5 loans. The EB-5 Loan Program was created by Congress to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign nationals interested in U.S. citizenship. He was the founder and Senior Managing Director of a large fund-of-funds firm (over $700 million in investments), which was targeted at venture capital, growth equity, medium-size buyout funds and cleantech investing.
At the firm where Jonathan served as acting general counsel, he reviewed and negotiated limited partnership agreements and side letters for over 30 partnerships. He has extensive experience managing both general and limited partner relationships, and deep knowledge of public pension funds, institutional markets and private equity as an alternative asset class. While at the firm, he oversaw all legal issues and acted as the Chief Compliance Officer for an SEC-registered investment advisor.
Jonathan has raised capital for technology, real estate and telecommunication companies, manufacturing facilities and Internet distribution centers. He won the RFP and successfully developed and built the amusement park on the Santa Monica Pier. He has negotiated many financing transactions, served on numerous boards of directors of public and private companies, taken several companies public through the IPO process and directly interacted with many state public pension funds.
Prior to joining Manatt, the fund-of-funds firm which Jonathan co-founded was sold to a major international investment bank.
