After the new Argentine legislation allows Argentine investors to operate financial instruments abroad, provided that they have a local agent as a link to the operation abroad. Puente announced an agreement with Partners Group, one of the leading investment groups in the world, to exclusively distribute one of its innovative investment instruments in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay.
"We are very excited about Partners Group's decision to choose us as its exclusive partner in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, which further strengthens our investment platform, particularly in terms of alternative investments. It presents an opportunity to those that seek to diversify their portfolio, maximizing their capital through investments in private equity, real estate, private debt, and infrastructures. This strategy allows the investor to access dollar returns that aim to be above most of the options available today in the market, with investments with lower volatility and that have a low correlation with traditional markets," said Federico Tomasevich, President of Puente.
With its head office in Switzerland and 19 offices around the world such as New York or Houston, Partners Group manages more than 74 billion dollars in assets invested in private equity, real estate, private debt and infrastructure projects.
"Partners Group, through Puente, makes available to the Argentine, Uruguayan and Paraguayan investment market, a modern and efficient investment alternative that gives access to Puente's clients to investments in private markets, which are typically only accessible to large institutional investors. We are very enthusiastic about this agreement with Puente, a renowned institution in the markets in which it operates," said Gonzalo Fernández Castro, Head of Private Equity for Latin America at Partners Group.
Puente has over 3,400 million dollars in assets under management.
