The firm and its partners have a strong history of operational excellence, board involvement, deep sector expertise, and an extensive global network. 3G Capital works in close partnership with management teams at its portfolio companies and places a strong emphasis on recruiting, developing and retaining top-tier talent.

The Founding Partners of 3G Capital are Jorge Paulo Lemann, Marcel Telles, Carlos Alberto Sicupira, Roberto Thompson, and Alex Behring, our Managing Partner, all of whom have together been investing in and operating businesses for several decades. The firm has offices in New York City and Rio de Janeiro.

Most recently, in July 2015, 3G Capital partnered with Berkshire Hathaway to complete the combination of H.J. Heinz Company and Kraft Foods Group, forming the Kraft Heinz Company, following 3G and Berkshire’s acquisition of Heinz in June 2013. Previously, in December 2014, 3G Capital completed the combination of Burger King and Tim Hortons, forming Restaurant Brands International, following 3G’s acquisition of Burger King in October 2010. Affiliates of 3G’s Partners are meaningful shareholders of AB Inbev since 1989 and Lojas Americanas since 1983.


3G Capital's strategy is to identify and invest in opportunities that are well-positioned for profitable, long-term growth and success across a variety of different sectors and regions. The firm's management team leverages prior investment experience, industry expertise and an extensive global network to successfully implement this strategy.

3G Capital and its affiliates have particular expertise in the retail and consumer sector and consistently evaluate new opportunities for successful investments in this industry.

In order to preserve capital and maximize value, 3G Capital believes that factoring in the downside of an investment is equally as important as the upside potential. This philosophy has helped the firm weather various global economic cycles.

3G Capital operates as a true partnership with strong meritocracy, and therefore there is significant alignment of interests among 3G Capital's Principals & Partners and relevant management teams.
