The private equity fund of funds manager, which has its headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, opened an office in Tokyo this week as it seeks to extend its presence in Asia. The firm believes that Japan offers attractive current and long-term investment opportunities. It sees the new base as complementing an existing office in Hong Kong and anticipates that it will enable the firm to develop relationships with private equity managers in the region, while also supporting its growing Japanese and East Asian investor base. Earlier this year, the private equity investment firm opened an office in Rio de Janeiro with the aim of identifying investment opportunities and supporting investors in Latin America.
