FCM Frederic Capital Management

Established and independent private markets investor based in Düsseldorf


FCM Frederic 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.

Fund investment

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, growth and secondary strategies.

Direct Co-Investments

Direct co-investment

Working with other experienced investors, FCM participates worldwide in buyouts of established and fast-growing companies. 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. The equity invested per transaction ranges from EUR 5 to 15 million, whereby smaller and larger transactions may be realised in individual cases.

Direct Growth Capital

FCM actively supports companies during their growth phase by providing capital and an extensive network to help achieve their goals. We attach great importance to meaningful and concise business plans, sustainably profitable and scalable business models, ideally ones which have already been successfully tested, as well as a management team equipped with relevant experience, determination and the “personal fit”.
