FCM Frédéric Capital Management is an established and independent private markets investor based in Düsseldorf. We pursue a diversified investment approach with the overarching goal of sustainable long-term growth in the value of our direct and indirect investments.

To meet this goal, we invest in the private market asset classes Private Equity, Infrastructure and Private Debt. We allocate capital to funds, direct co-investments and direct growth opportunities for this purpose. We further support our portfolio companies in realising their growth targets – with capital, consulting and with our global network.

FCM invests worldwide and across various sectors in private equity, infrastructure and private debt funds. The investment process from proactive identification to selection and closing is implemented by an experienced investment team with extensive expertise and an excellent track record. FCM’s investment focus is on funds run by talented managers who have been able to generate stable returns and outperformance on public markets over long periods of time and during various economic cycles. Potential managers have the skills and resources to improve numerous aspects of their portfolio companies with the aim of creating value. The fund allocation mainly focusses on the asset class private equity. This involves investment in buyout and secondary strategies.

We attach great importance to a sustainably successful business model with stable cash flows, added value through operational improvements and high congruence of interests between management and owners.
