Triginta Capital has its origins in the Ergo Insurance Group. In 2004 the company was bought out of the Ergo Insurance Group as part of a management buyout. As a Portfolio Manager, Triginta Capital has in the past assumed management functions for other fund companies. Triginta Capital managed and developed investment portfolios and accompanied medium-sized companies through to a successful exit. Triginta Capital is classified and registered as a small investment management company (Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft) with the German regulator BaFin. In the past, Triginta Capital has raised funds with an aggregated total volume of more than half a billion euros itself or taken over their management, implementing well over a hundred transactions on a wide variety of occasions.

Since 2019, Triginta Capital no longer invests from a fund or from its own GmbH. It is a consulting company and advises its own shareholders, partners as well as "friends and family" who then jointly invest in medium-sized companies through their own investment vehicles.
