Partners Group included in the MSCI Switzerland Index as of 30 November 2011
Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, announces that the firm has been included in the MSCI Switzerland Index as of 30 November 2011 after having been included in the SMIM, the Swiss Small & Mid Cap Index which tracks the 50 biggest listed companies in Switzerland, in mid-September. The MSCI Switzerland Index does not solely represent Switzerland’s listed stocks, but is also part of the MSCI World Index (developed markets) and therefore also included in the MSCI All Country World Index which is lastly part of the MSCI All Country World & Frontier Markets Index.
The inclusion in the MSCI Switzerland Index generated demand from active and passive managed vehicles which track either one or all of the indices mentioned above. Being included in the MSCI Switzerland Index is a major achievement for the firm and another milestone reflecting the standing of the firm as one of the global leaders in private markets investment management.
