Our clients always come first. Not only is it the right thing to do, but also we strongly believe that only by consistently adding value and thinking of what is best for our clients will we earn their trust and succeed as a business in the long term.
To excel is the best way for us to earn our clients’ trust. It is also inherently gratifying. Investment performance is at the core of what we do, and we continually strive for excellence in the quality of the managers that we select. But we also strive to excel in client servicing and we therefore pay enormous attention to the way we communicate and conduct ourselves in general and vis-a-vis our clients.
Alignment of interests is one of the most important tenets when investing, particularly in the private equity industry. We take it very seriously. In this respect, the Group’s management team, employees, and shareholders have made a significant commitment (in excess of €109MM) to all our funds. In addition, we have created a partnership structure in which employees who excel and demonstrate a true commitment to the firm’s values can become partners and share in the firm’s success. Today, Altamar Group has 28 partners out of a team of 150. We strongly believe that fostering a partnership-wide program that enables partners to obtain an equity stake in the business delivers a great alignment of interest with employees.
Successful fund manager selection and client servicing are two disciplines that not only require strong skills and knowledge but also deep and broad experience. And we are proud to have it. Our 28 partners all have extensive relevant professional experience.
We always think long term with respect to our clients, fund managers, and organization. Only by having long-term client relationships are we able to have a deep understanding of our client’s needs and provide the products and service they required. Only by having long term relationships with the fund managers we work with can we understand their culture and true strengths in order to better position them to service client needs. Only by thinking long term about our team and employees, and providing development opportunities and an outstanding working environment, can we build the stability in our business that will allow us to succeed.
All Altamar Capital Partners employees are ambassadors of the Group and we must conduct ourselves accordingly, committing to the highest ethical standards. We must comply at all times with ESG best practices. We act with integrity, honesty, dedication and excellence, in the fulfillment of our responsibilities, consistent with our core values.
