Northleaf Capital Partners has opened a Tokyo office to help address increased Asia investor demand.

The Tokyo office will be led by Jeff Pentland, a founding partner of Northleaf and member of its Investment Committee. Jeff has relocated from Northleaf’s Toronto office to Tokyo.

“Having led Northleaf’s business development activities in Asia for over 15 years, I am very excited to be back in Japan, establishing Northleaf’s Tokyo office, strengthening relationships with investors, and advancing our plans for offices in other leading Asian centres to support our growing investor base in the region,” says Pentland, managing director and head of APAC at Northleaf.

“We are seeing strong interest from investors across the APAC region in our private markets investment platform, including our global private credit strategy which offers investors access to high quality loans to mid-market businesses in North America and Europe, and our infrastructure strategy which provides access to mid-market assets in North America and select OECD jurisdictions,” he adds.

Northleaf manages $21 billion in private equity, private credit and infrastructure commitments from institutional investors and family offices. Contact Pentland at [email protected].
