Investment Manager, Local Government Pension Scheme, UK

Expert support for illiquid investment

Peter Hobbs’ team of specialists provides expert support across private debt, real estate, private equity, infrastructure, trade finance, agriculture, timberland, renewable energy and more.


A customised approach to portfolio design and manager selection, creative fee negotiation to minimise leakage and strong due diligence support all add particular value in private markets. Broad coverage ensures smaller, specialist boutiques are uncovered. With high performance dispersion and long-term horizons, manager selection is key to managing implementation risk.
