Partners Group, a Baar-Zug, Switzerland-based global private markets investment manager, has launched a private markets fund designed specifically for the UK defined contribution (DC) pensions industry.
The Partners Group Generations Fund will provide investors with access to private equity, private debt, private infrastructure and private real estate, while providing daily liquidity and pricing and fulfilling the regulatory requirements of platform providers for highly standardized purchase and redemption procedures. In contrast to ‘limited partnership’ vehicles, the Partners Group Generations Fund is structured as a Non-UCITS* Retail Scheme (NURS). Its portfolio includes a significant allocation to return-seeking private markets asset classes, complimented by an allocation to a yield-seeking credit portfolio. Liquidity is facilitated via an allocation to diversified listed private markets.
Led by André Frei and Christoph Rubeli, Partners Group has over $50 billion in investment programs under management across the private equity, private real estate, private infrastructure and private debt asset classes.
The firm is headquartered in Switzerland and has offices in 19 locations worldwide, including London.
