Augsburg 2 November 2023. PATRIZIA, a leading partner for global real assets, has strengthened its Global Clients Solutions team with the appointment of Jan-Christoph (JC) Klein as its new Head of Global Client Solutions for Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Klein will set up and establish PATRIZIA’s first office in the GCC region to further strengthen relationships with existing clients and accelerate the company’s capital raising activities among new institutional and private wealth clients in the Middle East.
With over 20 years of capital markets experience, Klein has a strong track-record raising capital for global investment solutions across the real assets, private equity, private debt and venture capital sectors. He spent eight years at Blackstone (and subsequently PJT Park Hill) where he was a Managing Director focused on capital raising for real assets, private equity and private debt globally. Prior to Blackstone, Klein held notable positions at Partners Group as the Head of Real Estate Investment Solutions Europe and more recently co-founded an independent capital advisory firm.
Konrad Finkenzeller, Head of Global Client Solutions at PATRIZIA, comments: “JC Klein is an exceptional addition to our Global Client Solutions team and will be instrumental in spearheading our client relationships and capital raising activities in the Middle East. As a truly independent investment manager we always ensure we have a local presence with people on the ground in each of our key markets to stay close to our clients. JC’s broad real assets experience combined with his entrepreneurial mindset and deep knowledge of the investor landscape will be invaluable in establishing our new office in the region and serving our clients in the Middle East and Africa.”
Klein’s appointment bolsters PATRIZIA’s more than 60-strong Global Clients Solutions team, which is responsible for raising capital for all products in the company’s real assets platform. The opening of the new GCC office will add to the company’s network of 28 offices globally, with key capital markets teams located in London, Munich, New York, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.
