Finance Associate

Overview of the Firm

Partners Capital is a $30B private investment office which provides investment management services to charitable endowments and foundations, pension funds, and family offices. Whilst we have a global reach with offices in London, Paris, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Singapore and Hong Kong, we retain an entrepreneurial and collegiate culture.

We were founded in 2001 to provide our clients with a long-term, multi-asset class, multi-manager investment approach, similar to the one pioneered by David Swenson, Head of Yale University’s Endowment Investment Office. To this end, we invest across the broad asset class spectrum, which includes well-known strategies such as Hedge Funds, Private Equity and Real Estate as well as more esoteric opportunities such as litigation finance, retro reinsurance and life settlements. Whilst we largely invest through funds, we also regularly co-invest alongside our managers.

We have never operated so-called ‘in house funds’, and therefore remain free from the conflicts of interest inherent in the business models of more traditional investment managers and private banks. We are proud of this independence, as well as our track record of outperformance, the sophistication of our clients, and the longevity of our relationships with them.
