Dechert is advising GQG Partners Inc. (GQG), a U.S.-based global investment boutique focused on managing active equity portfolios, on the prospective launch of its private capital solutions business, GQG Private Capital Solutions LLC (PCS). Dechert is also advising GQG on an agreement for an affiliate of GQG to acquire equity interests in certain boutiques from Pacific Current Group Limited, a global multi-boutique asset management business, and certain of its U.S. affiliates (collectively, PAC).
