Partners Group announces successful close of US venture-focused fund
Partners Group, the Switzerland based global alternative asset manager, announces the final close of Partners Group US Venture 2006, L.P. at USD 250 million. The fund invests in high-quality, established US venture and growth capital partnerships with strong track records. In a segment in which dispersion between top and bottom quartile is high, Partners Group offers its clients access to high performing firms through its extensive industry network.
Partners Group has always stressed the diversification benefits of venture and growth capital and in particular in today’s market environment these attractive segments should not be overlooked by investors. Not being dependent on credit, venture and growth capital are insulated from the large cap buyout market and the lower entry valuations currently seen offer significant return potential to the long-term investor.
Among the limited partners participating in the fund are corporate and public pension plans, insurance companies and family offices from the USA, the UK, continental Europe and the Middle East. Partners Group US Venture 2006, L.P. has already committed 75% of capital to a variety of leading partnerships including Draper Fisher Jurvetson, TA Associates and Battery Ventures.
