Job Description

LGT Capital Partner's infrastructure strategy invests across three strategies: Primary Fund Commitments, Secondary investments (both LP-led and GP-led secondaries), and Direct Co-Investments. The strategy is focused on Core Plus and Value Add infrastructure where the team finds attractive risk-adjusted return opportunities and the greatest ability to leverage the broader LGT Capital Partners Private Equity Platform. For that reason the infrastructure team, while dedicated to the asset class, sits within the Private Equity Investment Management team. The business manages both a flagship fund offering that focuses on Secondaries and Co-investments, and a series of mandates with varying investment strategies.

Due to expected growth in the market and plans to launch the next iteration of its flagship fund series, the LGT Capital Partners infrastructure team is looking to add an experienced Associate [or Associate Director] to its team based in Pfaffikon (SZ), Switzerland.

  • Presenting due diligence findings to the team and investment committee in a clear and succinct manner that adequately captures the risks, mitigants, and opportunities;
