Private Equity


Episode Description:

Andreas Holzmueller and Luke Chapman represent Partners Group, an investment firm that canvasses buyouts, real estate, infrastructure, and private credit with $135 billion under management, $71 billion of which is in private equity.

Breitling is one of the leading Swiss watchmakers, founded in 1884 as a pioneer in aviation-focused technology, and which today, is positioned as a casual, inclusive, and sustainable luxury brand.

Our conversation covers Partners Group’s thematic approach, Breitling’s long history, and its characteristics as a luxury brand business. We discuss Partners’ initial purchase of a minority stake in the business, its path to buying a controlling stake, and plans to grow the business from here.
