Pantheon is a leading global private markets investor, with a specialism in private equity. Pantheon operates through a series of fund of funds as well as a publicly traded private equity vehicle, Pantheon International Participations. Pantheon manages regional primary investments, global secondary and infrastructure investments and customised separate account programmes.[1]

Pantheon has over 190 employees with more than US$30.8 billion in assets under management (as of March 31, 2015). The firm has operated as a subsidiary of Affiliated Managers Group Inc. ("AMG") since its acquisition in early 2010.[2][3]

Originally formed in 1982 as the private equity investment division of GT Management in London, Pantheon's management acquired the private equity division in 1988 through a management buyout. Pantheon was then acquired by Russell Investments, an investment management subsidiary of Northwestern Mutual, in 2004.

In 2010, Pantheon was acquired by Affiliated Managers Group ("AMG"), a NYSE-listed asset management company with shareholdings in a diverse group of over 30 mid-sized asset management firms. Pantheon's management acquired a share of the equity in the transaction and is expected to maintain independent management of its business.[2][3]

Pantheon develops and implements private equity investment strategies for more than 400 institutional investors globally, including public and private pension plans, endowments, foundations, and family offices.
