Slideshow: European Fund-of-Funds Build Up U.S. Offices

One thing is for sure among European managers of funds of funds: A U.S. presence is a must-have if you want to assert yourself as a global player and have credibility with your investors.

This seems to count for both the veteran giants with tens of billions in their coffers–firms such as Netherlands-based AlpInvest, UK-based Pantheon and Swiss-based Partners Group–as well as the more modest players with single figure billions under management such as Swiss-based Adveq and CapVent. One of the most recent to open an office here is London-based Hermes GPE, which in July announced the opening of its Boston outlet.

All told, 28 funds-of-funds managers based in Europe have a U.S. office, out of a total 115 such managers registered in Europe, according to research from data provider Preqin.
