Partners Group establishes presence in Brazil
Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, is further expanding its global reach with the establishment of a presence in Brazil. The new office in the financial district of São Paulo serves as a base for Partners Group's investment activities and as ideal hub to support further investments and the growing number of client relationships in Latin America.
São Paulo offers an excellent position for further expansion in a promising growth market. The country had a modest recession followed by a quick recovery and is back on a growth path. This favorable investment environment is due to political and regulatory stability, dynamic economic growth, increasing prosperity, and strong domestic demand.
Urs Wietlisbach, founding partner and Executive Vice Chairman of Partners Group, comments, "Rising complexity of private markets requires a global positioning with direct access to local investment possibilities. Our private market strategies are implemented by more than 450 dedicated specialists who, including this new office, now operate from 14 offices on four continents. The opening of our presence in Brazil reflects our integrated global approach and the market potential we have identified in this region."
