Our DNA

FCM Frederic Capital Management was founded in 2017 and is an established, independent private markets investor with offices in Düsseldorf and Luxembourg.

We have a diversified investment approach with the overarching goal that our investments increase in value in the long term. To meet this goal, we invest in the private market asset classes of private equity, infrastructure, and private debt. For this, we allocate capital to funds and co-investments.

Further, the company’s focus is on developing a particular sensibility towards the needs of our clients and ensuring that this is always at the centre of our decision-making.

Relationships with Fund Managers

FCM offers its clients custom access to asset classes including private equity, infrastructure, and private debt. The selection of outstanding fund managers is crucial for this – a process carried out by an experienced team with a first-class track record. The investment criteria include, among others:

  • A solid investment team with wide-ranging experience that consistently follows a coherent investment strategy
  • A wealth of expertise in fund management within the individual transaction areas and a successful track record
  • Constant outperformance across various economic cycles
  • Internal resources and abilities that actively help add value to portfolio companies
  • Target returns totalling >2.5x MOIC, which reflects our ambitious value creation objectives

The focus of FCM is on building diversified portfolios in accordance with the aforementioned criteria. FCM, upon request, manages the entire investment process in close consultation with its client:

  • Holistic allocation planning and portfolio construction
  • Comprehensive due diligence on investment opportunities
  • Decision-making process (discretionary or in collaboration with the client)
  • Constant monitoring and preparation of detailed reports
  • Coordination with portfolio administration

Furthermore, there is the option to exclude specific allocation parameters (geography, strategy, etc.).

Co-investments

In addition to its fund investment activities, FCM executes targeted private equity co-investments in collaboration with established fund managers. Co-investments are a key part of modern private market portfolios:

  • Cost-efficient access to high-quality private equity opportunities
  • Diversification at fund manager level in different sectors, regions, strategies, and exit channels
  • Complementary deal flow
  • Attractive risk-return profile
  • Extend partnerships with existing fund managers

FCM and its dedicated co-investment team have executed on more than 35 co-investment opportunities since 2019. Our investment approach in this area includes:

  • Proactively identifying attractive opportunities
  • Selecting lead investors with relevant experience
    (“the right sponsor for the right deal”)
  • Focusing on opportunities in the lower and middle market segment across North America and Europe
  • Stringent, multi-stage due diligence process
  • Equity capital investments between EUR 5 – 20m per co-investment
