Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, is building a headquarters for its Americas operations in metro Denver, Colorado.
The firm will develop a campus capable of accommodating several hundred employees over time, the first phase of which is expected to be completed in 2018. Partners Group will open a temporary office in Denver from May 2016 until the new campus is ready.
Dr. Charles Dallara, Partner/Chairman of the Americas, Partners Group, said: "Our intention is to build a hub for our Americas activities, in the same way that our headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, and our Singapore office serve as hubs for Partners Group in Europe and Asia. We will invest a significant amount of time and resources into building our Colorado campus, which is a reflection of our commitment to the Americas. We believe Colorado is a great fit for Partners Group and are excited to be able to offer our employees the option of working there."
David Layton, Partner/Co-Head Private Equity, will relocate from New York to head the Americas headquarters in Colorado. Layton said: "With clients and investments located across the US, we chose Colorado because of its central location, as well as the high quality of life the state offers to our employees. Denver is one of the fastest-growing cities in the US, with a highly educated workforce, and it is becoming a magnet for talented professionals who are seeking dynamic careers outside of the typical financial centers. In Colorado we will create a unique campus culture at the heart of our Americas business."
