Company Description

Located in Boston, New York City, San Francisco, Singapore, Paris and London, Partners Capital is a global outsourced investment office (or Outsourced CIO / “OCIO”) serving investment professionals, endowments, foundations and high net-worth families by providing independent advice on asset allocation and access to leading asset managers across all asset classes and geographic markets. Our mission is to deliver the most advanced proven institutional investment strategy to our individual and institutional clients.

The firm was founded in 2001 by investment professionals seeking an independent and conflict-free adviser to provide portfolio construction advice and rigorous analysis of investment opportunities. From its initial focus as the "money managers to the money managers" with investment professional clients, Partners Capital has grown to become a leading adviser to endowments and foundations as well as prominent family offices and successful entrepreneurs across the US, UK, Europe and Asia. Our clients include senior partners at leading firms such as Bain Capital, Blackstone, Apax, and Summit Partners, as well as executives, entrepreneurs and institutions including several Oxford and Cambridge University college endowments, INSEAD business school and other respected endowments and charitable foundations. Our clients tend to be among the most sophisticated investors in the world possessing a sound understanding of investment principles with experience across all asset classes.

Partners Capital operates a global, multi-asset class investment research effort to identify, diligence, structure and deploy capital to a broad range of attractive investment opportunities on behalf of our clients.  Our investment program spans long-term relationships with world class asset managers, proprietary mandates in partnership with external managers, anchor investments with promising new teams and selective direct investment programs.  We actively invest across fundamental and quantitative strategies, with generalist and niche specialist managers and at all stages of the manager lifecycle.  Our research effort is driven by three asset class teams in Credit & Absolute Return, Public Equities and Private Markets, supported by macroeconomic insights from our Central Research Team and overseen by our CIO and Internal Investment Committee.

Partners Capital offers its investment program in customized outsourced investment solutions to endowments and foundations, and taxable private clients. Most of our relationships involve management of “full balance sheet” multi-asset class portfolios, but we also work on select specialist mandates, such as Asian or Private Equity investing.

Our investment philosophy embraces many of the powerful diversification benefits of the so-called "endowment model", but with a more dynamic approach to asset allocation which seeks to clearly delineate performance derived from market factors from the skill of individual managers.

In addition to constructing custom portfolios for each client, we manage approximately 35 private pooled vehicle portfolios in the hedge fund, equities, real estate and private equity asset classes.  Developing and launching additional funds is a core element of our strategy.
