Stan Miranda is the Co-Founder and Chairman of Partners Capital, a global OCIO with $50 billion under management. Stan was previously a longtime director at Bain and chairman of their Worldwide Executive Committee and a co-founder of Evolution Global Partners, a venture capital firm affiliated with Kleiner Perkins and TPG.
I was interested to talk to Stan about the very interesting DNA of Partners, and how they engage with their very talented clients, many of whom are private equity partners, endowment heads, and substantial family offices.
Stan has thought deeply about the Endowment Model and has written many excellent white papers for Partners, some of which we discuss. We cover the upcoming energy transition and why the route is not Net Zero, how he combined strategic thinking and analysis with the endowment model into the playbook they used to start Partners, how private equity partners manage their own personal money, and the transitions they go through in their own lives, and how Stan thinks about alternatives to alternatives. Please enjoy my excellent conversation with the engaging Stan Miranda.
