Swiss-headquartered private equity firm Partners Group has opened a new office in Houston, Texas to build on its private markets coverage of the US and Latin America, especially within infrastructure.
Managing director and head of infrastructure Americas Todd Bright will head up the new office and continue to build out the firm’s investment activities in the US and Latin America.
Bright said, “Houston is the undisputed energy center of the US and therefore this office opening is a natural next step for Partners Group as the firm deepens its coverage of the energy sector in the Americas.
“Houston is also a major gateway to Mexico and other Latin American countries – so this office is the ideal complement to our existing São Paulo office in terms of expanding our access to both private markets investments and also our clients in Latin American markets.”
The new site brings the total number of Partners’ offices around the world to 18.
