About Us

A Multi-Asset Investment Group

NorthCapital is a European based, privately owned, multi-asset investment group founded in 2015.

Since its founding NorthCapital has been the investment holding company of its founder, Werner Schmidt, operating as a venture capital firm with ownership stakes in various sectors.

Historically our focus has been on the precious stones sector primarily in Brazil where NorthCapital and Werner Schmidt privately have earned a position as significant investors and market leaders particularly in Emeralds and Alexandrites.

Since our start we have aimed to expand our base and develop into a multi-asset investment group with a global perspective.

We strive to create value through investments across multiple sectors, industries, and geographies. We aim to maintain a well-diversified portfolio generating superior risk-adjusted returns and a lasting impact for our businesses, teams, investors, and the communities in which we operate.

In addition to our own balance sheet investments, NorthCapital invests third-party capital on behalf of institutional investors and UHNWIs in our businesses.

NorthCapital actively seeks to work with organizations, governmental institutions, companies and individuals around the world that share our values.
