Company

Founded in 2006,

Prime Capital has an established track record as an independent asset manager focused exclusively on Alternative Investments. We are experienced investors across Absolute Return, Energy Infrastructure and Private Debt, and offer a range of Alternative Services to support our clients to access Alternatives.

Headquartered in Frankfurt with a second office in Luxembourg, we are over 120 people strong in our highly collaborative employee community. Our people are our most important asset as they are the core of the relationships we build with our clients and partners.

As we offer both investment strategies and services, our stakeholders are diverse. We are at home in Europe, and service clients globally across Pension Plans, Insurance Companies, Corporates, Family Offices and other institutions. We are humbled and grateful to count some of the most reputable institutional investors as our clients and partners.

From investors seeking our innovative strategies to business partners seeking our expertise in structuring capital, we look to foster long-term partnerships.

Philosophy

We aspire to translate the complex world of Alternative Investments into meaningful outcomes for our clients.

We look to achieve differentiated uncorrelated returns and deliver value add through the excellence of our research, discipline, internal processes, and independent thinking – all of which drives our investing.

We specialize in Alternative Investments across different liquidity spectrums, with deep investment expertise in Absolute Return, Energy Infrastructure and Private Debt strategies, as well as sophisticated structuring acumen.

We enrich and reinforce our own rigorous research with the market insights of our global advisors and close relationships with our various business partners.

Values

THE CULTURE OF OUR COMPANY IS DEFINED BY FIVE CORE VALUES:

Excellence

We work tirelessly to drive innovative solutions and produce superior investment results for our clients.

Client Centricity

Our clients are at the center of everything we do – we believe that integrity and loyalty are imperative to achieving our clients’ desired outcomes.

Discipline

As a process-driven organization – with transparency in our actions and accountability to our decisions – we emphasize the rigor of our methodology as the foundation of the solutions we execute.

Teamwork

Our people are our most important asset — we take a collaborative approach to identifying opportunities, working through considerations and ultimately developing strategies and services.

Diversity

We thrive in the differing mindsets of our employees who come from many different countries and a variety of backgrounds.

ESG

It is our belief that sustainability stands for the enhancement of both current and future potentials. It is linked over the longer term to an open mind-set and founded on an awareness as to where to source sustainability in environmental, social and governance factors.

We believe that reflecting these factors will allow Prime Capital – as well as our clients – to evolve further, grow and prosper.

THAT IS WHY WE HAVE TAKEN THE FOLLOWING STEPS:

We have made a commitment to consider ESG factors in our investment decisions and we proactively integrate ESG strategies into our investment processes.

We provide institutional investors with an opportunity to invest in sustainability centered financial products with a measurable positive impact.

We have formed an internal sustainability team, which has been integrated into our corporate structure.

We have been a signatory of the UN PRI (The UN Principles for Responsible Investment) since 2020 and of the German Diversity Charta since 2021.

We have begun to measure our corporate carbon footprint with a plan to become carbon neutral.
