Mr. Farrell is the Chairman & CEO of Privos Capital, a global multi-family office LP (MFO) with offices in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
Privos Capital partners with single family offices, multi-family offices, Arab merchant families, and royal family offices, their funds, foundations, asset management firms, and portfolio companies, in all leading international financial centers, as well as in the BRICS, N-11, and the Frontier Countries of the Emerging Markets. Privos Capital’s core business is working with our firm’s family office LP partners on all aspects of their world-wide investments and expansionist activities by entering into strategic alliances, joint ventures, direct and co-investment opportunities with other international family office LPs around the world. We are active across most sectors, including financial services, art, fashion, real estate, energy, healthcare, life sciences, media, and technology. In Los Angeles, we focus on entertainment, gaming, and film financing.
Privos is a fiercely independent and privately held firm. By choice, we do not manage money, nor do we sell or market investment products, securities, or fund products. Rather, we work globally with our family office partners (SFO, MFO, HNWI, UHNWI) who are invested across diverse classes, including private equity, secondaries, hedge funds, distressed, and venture capital, as well as foundations and philanthropy. As a MFO allocator, we are active in sustainable, responsible, and impact investments (SRI) and integrate ESG (environment, social and governance) principles into our investment mandates. We embrace the principles of UNPRI. As a firm, we are proud members of US SIF as well as Impact Engine, a group of high profile angel LPs who allocate to ESG, SRI and sustainable international investments.
Mr. Farrell has lived and worked in the US, London, Europe, and the Middle East. He is a thought leader and one of the leading experts on global family offices. Mr. Farrell is a frequent sought after speaker at international private equity, hedge fund, ESG, and family office conferences. He has been featured and quoted extensively in Bloomberg.com and the financial press. Mr. Farrell is based in the firm’s New York office. Prior to joining Privos, Mr. Farrell was a partner at an international law firm. He is married with four sons, two of whom attend Phillips Exeter Academy (“Exeter”) where Mr. Farrell has served as a club advisor and student mentor.
