The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat.


Muz joined TCV in 2015 and focuses on investment opportunities in the internet, software, FinTech, and technology-enabled services sectors. His current investments include Klarna, Mollie, RELEX Solutions and Retail Merchant Services, where he serves on the board of directors, as well as Celonis, Mambu, Spryker, and The Pracuj Group.

Prior to TCV, Muz was an investor with Vector Capital in San Francisco, where he focused on sourcing, evaluating and executing investments across the software, internet and security sectors.

Muz started his career as an investment banker at Merrill Lynch, working with technology companies on strategic M&A transactions and financing activities. He also worked at T. Rowe Price, where he researched technology investment opportunities in Europe.


Muz spent his early years in Dubai before moving to Lahore and eventually landing in the Bay Area, where he lived for several years before moving to Europe. Muz has a keen interest in cricket, which he continues to enjoy despite being surrounded by an office full of football fans. He also enjoys squash, following Stanford football, attempting to cook ethnic food, and traveling.
