Pantheon is delighted to have been voted Fund of Funds Manager of the Year in Europe 2014 in the annual awards published today by Private Equity International. The PEI annual awards stand out because they, uniquely, reflect the views and votes of our peers in the private equity industry.
“We were shortlisted by PEI alongside some high calibre competitors in the European private equity space, and could not be more thrilled than to be considered best in class in 2014 by our own peers who voted for us,” commented Paul Ward, Pantheon’s Managing Partner, adding: “This is a particularly special award for us given it reflects the opinions and views of those firms and professionals we have worked with through the years to deliver great results for our clients. As such, we congratulate all our fellow winners in other categories in the 2014 Awards.”

The Private Equity International Awards are announced annually and are the only industry awards decided solely by the private equity industry, for the industry. PEI draws up a shortlist of four nominees in each award category and submits these nominations to voting by industry participants during December and January. Voters are also able to suggest alternative nominees and winners in a category. Voting closes in mid-January and the results are published by PEI in its Annual Review, published in March.
