The Geneva office houses client relations professionals. The Dublin office houses private debt, finance and risk and compliance professionals. In 2018, Muzinich & Co. Limited purchased Springrowth S.G.R. S.p.A., an Italian asset management company. In the same year, the Dublin office was branded Muzinich & Co.
