Partners Group head for £270m float

Partners Group Global Opportunities is hoping to raise £270m prior to its floatation on London’s junior stock market.

The Guernsey-based investment company plans to float on AIM on October 3, and has plans for a series of business ventures covering a wide variety of different sectors.

Nominated advisor and broker for the company is Credit Suisse.

The company is headed by John Hallam, formerly of PricewaterhouseCoopers and Rupert Dorey.

In a statement on the AIM website the company said: “The Company will invest primarily in a broadly diversified portfolio of private market investments, including private equity and private debt, with a focus on direct investments.

“The Company will be able to invest across all geographic regions and business sectors, without limitation, and will seek to invest a majority of its capital directly in select operating companies, typically in transactions sponsored by a private equity fund.

“The directors undertake to propose a resolution for the winding-up of the Company if no investments have been made within 12 months of admission to trading on AIM.”
