Who We Work With


Over 20 years ago, the founders of Partners Capital conceived a vision of building a global investment business to advise many of the most sophisticated investors in the world. While many thought this unnecessary, the firm’s founders comprised veteran investment principals who felt a similar need.

By April 2002, we had brought together 43 sophisticated investors who saw the benefit of a firm like Partners Capital accumulating insights from their clients as well as from their in-house research team and playing back to them an investment strategy superior to that which they could execute on their own. To this end, we felt it critically important to bring together not just the most thoughtful individual investors but also the most respected institutional investors, generally comprised of the institutions’ investment committee and internal team.

Today, we have over 400 clients who we believe represent the highest concentration of talented investors affiliated with any single outsourced investment office. Over the years, the mix has been fairly evenly split between institutional clients and private clients.

In many ways, our clients define our competitive advantage, with this special combination being a very important driver of that advantage. The thinking, along with the universe of investment opportunities that individual and institutional investors encounter, can be very different but complementary. We seek to bring the best of both worlds to our clients.

Endowments & Foundations

We serve a community of over 80 endowments and foundations around the world whose investment committees and internal investment professionals represent some of the most talented investors anywhere. We develop and manage highly customised full portfolio solutions for these institutions as their outsourced investment office in discretionary or advisory arrangements. There is little that is more gratifying than growing asset values to benefit the many powerful causes pursued by our endowment and foundation clients.

Private Clients & Family Offices

Working with many of the most sophisticated private clients around the world, our client CIO team develops highly customised portfolio solutions that complement other asset classes on the clients balance sheet and that seek to maximise after tax returns for each client’s level of risk tolerance. We are independent and fully-aligned with our clients’ unique objectives.


We partner with a wide range of institutions that includes endowments and foundations as well as pension plans, healthcare plans, sovereign wealth funds, boutique private banks and wealth managers.
