Lennertz & Co.
(09/2021)

Ex-Thiele Family Office boss Stefan Kamm moves to Lennertz & Co.

Stefan Kamm, long-serving head of the Single Family Office at Heinz Hermann Thiele (Knorr-Bremse) has joined the Lennertz & Co. team. “I am delighted to announce that Stefan Kamm is bringing his wealth of expertise and extensive network to Lennertz & Co. He will be focusing on cooperation agreements in the Single Family Office area,” says Philipp Lennertz, Managing Partner at Lennertz & Co.

Stefan Kamm can look back on a career spanning more than 30 years. Over that time his appointments have included Deutsche Bank in Munich and New York, M.M. Warburg & Co. and Berlin & Co. KGgA, where he was responsible for general operational and strategic management on behalf of families and foundations. In 2006, in his capacity as head of the Single Family Office for the Thiele family, he assumed responsibility for assets worth billions as well as liquid and non-liquid investments.

The Lennertz & Co. team now has 25 employees. Lennertz & Co. offers clients access to investment opportunities in such areas as venture and growth capital, private equity and blockchain technology.

“Over recent years, I have constantly been on the lookout for exclusive investment options in the shape of direct investments or special funds in the areas of venture and growth capital and private equity or thematic funds like blockchain. I am pleased that Lennertz & Co. has given me the chance to access an offering unlike anything else on the market,” says Stefan Kamm.

Lennertz & Co continuing the Fund of Funds Series

The multi-family office Lennertz & Co. in Hamburg has started the second generation with the Blockchain Fund II. The fund of funds should be similar to its predecessor product and invest in up to ten of the highest-quality blockchain venture funds with a focus on Europe and the U.S. Through the target funds, investors’ money flows into more than 200 companies whose developer teams are creating the infrastructure for Web 3.0 on the basis of open, decentralized, and more robust technology. Target funds that primarily invest in European companies are the Berlin early-stage fund Greenfield One or Fabric Ventures based in London. The U.S. funds include top names such as Coin Fund, Multicoin Capital, and Polychain Capital.

“The sharp rise in investment valuations let us close the first blockchain fund ahead of schedule and simultaneously set up the successor to continue giving our investors access to the tremendous potential of young companies and networks focusing on blockchain technology,” says Philipp Lennertz, Managing Partner of Lennertz & Co. The family office based in Hamburg has received EUR 30 million in capital commitments from its clients since December 2020 for the Lennertz & Co. Blockchain Fund I. The fund offers an opportunity to get invested in companies that are building the infrastructure of this new ecosystem on the basis of blockchain technology.
