AMCS Private Trust is an entrepreneur-lead single family office, based in Vienna, Austria. We are active investors across all asset classes, with a strong focus on private equity. The trusts’s assets are the proceeds from Ventrex Automotive, an Austrian automotive supplier. In the early nineties our founder acquired the company and reshaped it from a troubled aftermarket supplier into a global Tier 1/Tier 2 supplier. Ventrex was sold to the Dutch conglomerate Aalberts Industries in 2015.
We hold 60% of our assets in illiquid investmens. These include indirect and direct private equity/debt as well as direct real eastate. Our indirect private equity/debt program is focused on manager selection as well as diversification across regions, vintages and investment styles. We are invested in funds from Audax, Bain Credit, Crescent Mezzanine, L Catterton, Vista and Francisco Partners, among others. As far as direct private equity/debt and real estate investments are concerned, the Trust emphasizes its own operational know-how, co-investments with selected partners and leverage.
The remaining 40% of our assets are held in liquid investmens such as public equities, alternatives and fixed income. While the majority of the liquid assets are managed by investment partners, the Trust manages a minor part of the assets with the aim to benefit from short-term investment opportunities and special situations.
We are constantly on the look-out for new investment opportunities across all asset classes. Moreover, we strive towards an active exchange of ideas and opinions with other participants of the investment community. For any further information, please contact us directly using the details below.
