Pantheon AUM surpasses USD50bn

Pantheon passed a significant milestone at the end of March 2020 when its assets under management (AUM) topped USD50 billion, more than doubling since the end of 2010.

Despite the far-reaching human and economic consequences of the global pandemic, Pantheon has raised approximately USD3.7 billion of capital in the first months of 2020 and would like to take the opportunity to thank its existing and new clients for their partnership and loyalty. 

In other developments, Rob Barr, Partner, has assumed the role of Head of Investor Relations for the EMEA, a new position that reflects the expanded range of European and Middle Eastern client markets now covered by Pantheon. Barr's responsibilities include the overall leadership of the Investor Relations team across EMEA and our distribution relationships in France, Italy, Middle East and Spain. Rob has worked for Pantheon since 2005 and is based in London. 

Pantheon is also delighted that earlier this month, its long-standing commitment to responsible investment were recognised in the latest UNPRI Annual Assessment, in which the firm scored the highest mark of A+ in each eligible category: Strategy & Governance, Private Equity and Infrastructure.

“2020 will forever be remembered as a year of profound disruption and tragedy,” says Barr. “Nonetheless, all of us at Pantheon remain focused on delivering the results and service our clients expect and require more than ever in these challenging times. I am proud of the way in which our global team continues to collaborate remotely to ensure that our clients are well-informed and provided with regular updates. And, most of all, I would like to thank all our clients for the trust they put in us as their private markets partner.”
