Pantheon expands global footprint into key private wealth hubs

  • Openings in Singapore and Geneva provide on-the-ground Pantheon expertise to meet growing demand in private wealth channel
  • Pantheon’s private wealth platform includes a range of evergreen funds, where it has a combined $5.8bn in assets under management
  • New offices also extend reach in strategic markets with attractive institutional growth dynamics

Pantheon, a leading global private markets investor, is pleased to announce it has extended its footprint into two important private wealth hubs with the launch of offices in Singapore and Geneva, Switzerland. Together, these new locations support the firm’s ongoing expansion in the private wealth channel and reflect its commitment to making its specialized expertise accessible to a wider range of investors.

Pantheon’s private wealth platform offers a range of evergreen fund solutions, with a combined $5.8bn in assets under management1. In the US the firm manages the AMG Pantheon Fund, one of the largest and most established registered private equity funds which earlier this year passed $2bn in assets under management2, and recently filed for registration the AMG Pantheon Credit Solutions Fund, a first-of-its-kind offering anchored in private credit secondaries. Outside the US the firm manages two London Stock Exchange-listed investment trusts, Pantheon International Plc and Pantheon Infrastructure Plc. The firm continues to innovate and extend the range of fund solutions available globally for private wealth investors to access its traditional private market funds.

Susan Long McAndrews, Partner and Global Head of Business Development, said: “Our strategic focus is on building our presence in key growth markets and client channels, offering our investment acumen and commitment to service excellence to more investors, while growing our investment capacity and reach. We are pleased to bring our global expertise to local markets in Singapore and Geneva, where we have generated significant momentum and where we see substantial opportunities for further growth.”

Pantheon’s office in Singapore will act as a hub for its activities in Southeast Asia and across the wider Asia-Pacific region, where it serves an expanding client base that includes a number of blue-chip institutional investors and national pension funds, including four of the top 20 pension fund allocators globally, in addition to a growing range of private wealth advisors and investors. Pantheon manages or advises on approximately $20bn of assets either from Asian investors, or invested in Asian assets on behalf of global clients3.

The office will be led by Brian Lim, Pantheon Partner and head of the firm’s investment activities across Asia and emerging markets. Brian joined Pantheon in 2009 and is also a member of the firm’s International Investment Committee, which provides oversight on its investment activities globally.
The Geneva office extends Pantheon’s presence in Continental Europe, alongside existing offices in London, Dublin and Berlin. It will be led by Carlos Arias, Principal in the firm’s European Investor Relations team, who provides broader coverage for the firm’s institutional and private wealth clients in French speaking markets, as well as Spain and Italy. Carlos joined the firm in 2022 from Edmond de Rothschild Private Equity, where among other things he co-led the launch of private markets products distribution within the global private bank.
