Partners Group, the Switzerland-based global alternative asset manager, has reported that its estimated assets under management at the end of June totalled CHF22bn, representing growth of CHF4.7bn in the first half of 2007.
The firm says its breakdown of assets under management consists of CHF14.3bn in private equity, CHF1.8bn in private debt, CHF1.6bn in listed strategies, CHF3.4bn in hedge funds and CHF1.0bn in Partners Group’s wealth management practice. The net revenue margin of new assets raised is expected to be consistent with previous years.
Partners Group says it expects to see a continued inflow of assets in its open products and potential new separate accounts and mandates in the second half of the year, albeit at a more moderate growth pace. The firm will announce its full financial result for the first half of the year on August 27.
The acquisition of the discretionary real estate asset management arm of Pension Consulting Alliance, which was announced in February, has now been completed. The integration of the former PCA team into Partners Group is progressing and the combined team has been operating out of the firm’s new San Francisco office for over two months. Partners Group plans to launch three dedicated private real estate products in the second half of the year.
Partners Group manages a broad range of funds, structured products and customised portfolios for an international clientele of institutional investors, private banks and distribution partners. Headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, with offices in New York, London, San Francisco, Singapore and Guernsey, the firm employs more than 220 people, is listed on the SWX Swiss Exchange with a market capitalisation of more than CHF4.5bn, and is majority owned by its 34 partners and principals and its employees.
