May 12 2008 | 11:22am ET

Partners Group, the Swiss-based alternative asset manager, has expanded its Asian presence with the opening of its Beijing office, and has appointed Linda Cai as head of its new initiative in the region.

Cai joined the firm in January 2007 after holding various positions in private equity investment management and marketing in the U.S. and China.

”Having been active investors in China since 2005, we have seen rapid growth in market size and depth, with investment opportunities offering superior returns,” said Philipp Gysler, the firm's head of Asia. “This local presence represents a natural next step, securing our leading position and ensuring market proximity, which is crucial in China.”

Partners Group manages more than 24 billion Swiss francs (US$230 billion) in alternative strategies including p.e., real estate, and hedge funds.
