Partners Capital, a leading Outsourced Investment Office managing over $48B1 of assets for clients globally, has today announced the appointment of Euan Finlay as Head of EMEA. He also joins the Partners Capital Executive Committee.
In this role, Finlay will oversee the business across the EMEA region, including the mentorship of the senior investment team and the execution of strategic growth initiatives. He will continue to be a member of the Global Investment Committee.
Finlay joined Partners Capital from Goldman Sachs in 2009, where he worked in their investment banking division focused on mergers and acquisitions.
“Euan’s contributions to our firm have been enormous. He has had a meaningful impact on our investment programme over the years, particularly our private market investments, whilst managing the portfolios of many of our largest clients, both institutions and families”, said Arjun Raghavan, CEO. “This is a natural evolution of our European leadership team and forms a key part of our long-term succession strategy.”
“I am honoured to take this role and continue to build our business in the EMEA region through the provision of bespoke, risk managed, multi-asset class portfolios on behalf of endowments, foundations, investment professionals and families. We believe that our investment strategy is particularly well suited for the current environment of heightened macroeconomic volatility” added Finlay.
Finlay succeeds John Collis, who will be retiring after 19 years with the firm. Will Jagger will assume responsibility for the management of the London office, the largest of Partners Capital’s 7 offices, with over 160 employees. Will joined Partners Capital in 2010 having previously worked at L.E.K Consulting in London and Shanghai. He leads the implementation of the Partners Capital investment program across bespoke client portfolios, whilst managing the portfolios of many of the firm’s largest clients in Europe.
“We are hugely grateful for all that John has contributed to the firm over the course of his long career. He has been an integral part of our European business and global firm leadership for almost two decades, and we wish him a very happy retirement”, said Raghavan.
