The Founders: HULT Private Capital

A chance interaction in 2004 at the Geneva Energy Summit would become the beginning of an institutional legacy for which HULT Private Capital would be founded on. Immediately connecting on a number of topics, a friendship would pave the way for the alignment of their business objectives and their belief in the need for a fresh approach.

John Williams, one of the founders, credits HULT Private Capital success to having shared goals and priorities yet differing in many ways. He had these words of advice for anyone considering a partnership: “You should certainly strive to find someone whose skills and perspective complement your own, all the while challenging you, pushing you well past your comfort zone.”

“While we share a love for innovative investment projects and ideas combined with the traditional, we also see the world differently,” said co-founder Lewis Hill. “Our individual experiences and perspectives create a healthy balance; we both knew that success would require a lot more talent than just the two of us could bring and with the initial backing from private institutional investors, it is evident that our idea to bring something personalised and boutique was the right one. Investors no longer want the typical. Innovation is “key”, and this is what John brings with his experience in the alternative investment market and fund creation.”

HULT has grown organically since its inception in 2008, branching out from a small office in Munich to becoming internationally recognised in Europe, the Middle East and Asia with over £340 million in investments to projects and ideas that HULT Private Capital has introduced to its clients. As we pave the way for an exciting future our fundamentals remain at the heart of our growth being instrumental to our success.
