Partners Capital Adds Emmanuel Pitsilis As A Managing Director And Co-Head Of Asia Pacific

OCIO Partners Capital has hired Emmanuel Pitsilis as a Managing Director based in Singapore. He will serve as co-head for the Asia Pacific region alongside Managing Director Adam Watson and report to CEO Arjun Raghavan. 

"We are thrilled to welcome Emmanuel to Partners Capital at a time when the client demand for investment services and solutions across Asia has never been greater," said Raghavan, who founded and ran the firm's Asia business in 2011 until becoming CEO in July 2020. "Emmanuel's extensive network of senior relationships with investors, asset managers and financial institutions in Asia-Pacific (APAC) accentuates our ability to holistically serve our global clients."

Pitsilis has over 25 years of experience in APAC as an investor and leader in the financial services industry. Prior to joining Partners Capital, he was an entrepreneur and early-stage venture investor focused on Asia B2B SaaS and FinTech sectors. Over the last seven years, he co-founded two tech businesses and built a successful venture portfolio. In addition, he spent over 20 years at McKinsey & Company, mostly in Hong Kong, where he was a Senior Partner in the financial services practice focused on building the Asian practice. 

"I am excited to join Partners Capital at a time when Asia is at the forefront of global investment opportunities and investment innovation," said Pitsilis. "After meeting Arjun, Adam and Dominik, it was clear to me that the firm has unmatched potential given its deep intellectual capital and global investment talent. The firm's rigorous approach to every facet of investing including research, highly sophisticated risk management and portfolio construction combined with access to top-tier managers and compelling investment ideas, and an ability to integrate sustainability is truly distinctive. We are well positioned to help both Asian investors – institutions and a growing number of family offices – in navigating global markets and to help global investors in understanding and investing in Asia."
