The CHF 22.5 billion Switzerland-based private equity fund of funds manager is based in Switzerland and already has a global presence with offices in a number of regions including the US, Middle East, Australia and Tokyo. Partners Group believes that the establishment of an office in South Korea further demonstrates its commitment to the Asia Pacific region, where it already has a presence in five countries, employs over 100 professionals, and is one of the most active private equity investors.
The number of client relationships held by Partners Group in Asia Pacific is continually growing and it has recently secured two mandates from Korean sovereign wealth fund Korea Investment Corporation (KIC). By establishing a local presence in Korea, the firm feels it will be able to better identify attractive private equity investment opportunities in the region for its clients and can also provide local clients with access to global private equity funds.
Partners Group has been expanding its global presence this year having opened a representative office in Dubai in 2010 to enable it to better support its expanding client base and private equity investment activities in the Middle East, and to enhance its proximity to markets in Israel and North Africa.
