Partners Group to integrate its Italian partner Perennius Capital Partners and
open Milan office

Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, and Perennius
Capital Partners today announce that they will integrate all their investment
and client service activities in Italy. Perennius Capital Partners has been
Partners Group's exclusive Italian partner since its foundation in 2007. Its
Milan office will bring Partners Group's total number of offices to 16 around
the globe.

Over the past six years, Perennius Capital Partners has, in a mutually
exclusive partnership for Italy, offered tailor-made private markets
investment solutions to Italian clients in response to the increased appetite
observed amongst institutional investors. In addition, both Partners Group and
Perennius Capital Partners have sourced and transacted on attractive
investment opportunities in the region, such as the investment completed in
one of the largest single operating solar power plant in Europe in the Rovigo
province of northern Italy on behalf of their clients. Following the
significant success of the two firm's joint activities, merging all investment
and client activities into one global platform is the logical next step for
further enhancing the private markets solutions available to the Italian
client base.

Alessandro Poli, founder and managing partner of Perennius Capital Partners,
comments "The entire management team of Perennius Capital Partners is very
excited and feels honored to join the Partners Group platform. We are proud to
have established our firm as the name of reference in the private markets
industry in Italy with regards to performance, integrity and professional
standing over the course of the past six years. We remain committed to further
improving local services to our Italian clients while continuing to offer them
broad access to the global private markets investment universe."

Dr. Marcel Erni, Co-founder and Chief Investment Officer of Partners Group,
adds "We look forward to successfully continuing to expand our activities in
Italy for the benefit of our common client base, enabling them to invest
through a global investment platform. We believe the Italian market continues
to offer compelling opportunities in specialized sectors and believe that the
Perennius team's local network, access and investment expertise will ensure we
continue to be able to identify and invest in the most attractive of these."

The integration is expected to be completed in the coming months and remains
subject to regulatory approval.
