Our Regional Leadership
In markets where strong partnering relationships are required, a local presence is crucial. This on-the-ground presence is achieved through our international locations and is critical for acquiring in-depth knowledge of specific public companies. It’s also essential for being able to effectively monitor and manage risks that can arise over long holding periods. Our European and Asian offices, in London and Hong Kong respectively, opened in 2008. We also have offices in Luxembourg, Mumbai, New York, Sao Paulo, Sydney and San Francisco. They represent increasingly active channels for us in their respective regions.
