PAN-Tribal Asset Management has announced it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for the Australian marketplace with Barwon Investment Partners under which it will distribute the Barwon Global Listed Private Equity Fund.
Barwon is a specialist in investment solutions for institutional and wholesale clients investing in the private equity and property asset classes while its Global Listed PE fund was designed to invest in a portfolio of listed private equity funds, including buyouts, growth capital, and venture capital, together with listed alternative asset managers.
Commenting on the distribution agreement, PAN-Tribal’s chief executive, Colin Woods, said: “This alignment of interests is consistent with our approach, co-investment, being exposed to the same risks and reaping the same rewards as investors is central to our business.
“At a time when traditional asset classes are challenged, I believe the Barwon Global listed Private Equity Fund will fill an important gap for Australian investors.”
“Signing this distribution agreement with PAN-Tribal Asset Management is a natural progression, to enable a broader range of investors to gain access to an asset class that previously has predominantly been available only to larger institutions,” Sam Armstrong, founding partner and head of private equity at Barwon IP.
