Pemberton is a leading European private credit manager, backed by one of Europe’s largest insurers – Legal & General. We provide a range of financing solutions for borrowers and investment solutions for institutional investors.
We have a strong combination of asset management and banking expertise. Our skill lies in our ability to originate, select and manage diverse credit exposure through our local, on-the-ground pan-European origination offices.
Pemberton’s investor base is global and includes long-term partnerships with insurance companies, corporate and public pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, family offices and other institutional investors.
Many of our Limited Partners have invested across Pemberton’s strategies, either through fund investments or via tailored and innovative structures.
Our network of local offices provides a unique platform to originate, select and manage diverse credit exposure. That makes us an attractive partner for institutional investors searching for better yield and more downside protection than is offered by liquid credit instruments.
At Pemberton, we believe in the importance of being a responsible investor and building sustainable, long-term value for our Limited Partners through collaboration with our borrowers.

Our investment approach
We primarily invest in high-quality businesses often with market-leading positions across defensive industries in Europe. We support businesses backed by leading private equity sponsors and ambitious entrepreneurs. Our partnership approach provides long-term capital for buyouts, growth financing, add-on acquisitions and other general corporate purposes.
Through our various strategies, we are able to provide a range of financing solutions across the capital structure to match the needs of borrowers at each stage of a business’ lifecycle. We evaluate each investment opportunity on its own merit and strive to provide thoughtful solutions that will both meet our borrowers’ objectives and aim to provide attractive risk adjusted returns for our Limited Partners.
Our network of offices across the key economic hubs in Europe is the foundation of our origination capabilities. This local presence allows us to source a variety of investment opportunities while benefitting from and applying local market knowledge throughout the life of the investment.
Our office network
With 8 European offices and 100+2 professionals dedicated to private markets, Pemberton has one of the largest pan-European investment teams with extensive experience which we believe gives us an edge over other asset managers. Our network not only allows us to source the broadest and highest quality of investment opportunities but remains an important tool for ongoing monitoring over the life of investments.
