UR Capital stands for “you are capital”.  “Ur” is also one of the oldest cities in the world based in Mesopotamia. It mirrors part of our core values: Human Capital first, coupled with longevity and legacy.   

We believe the best asset of your company and the only genuine form of wealth are the people. This is the root of our philosophy and work ethic. It explains why we tailor make our services to each individual and company. 

At UR Capital we use an innovative methodology, which combines human specificities and new technology.

Added Value

We believe in human capital and long-term commitment. We are convinced that solid relationships and trust only come about with time.

As an independent privately owned and niche market boutique firm, we have the freedom to be committed and dedicated to both our clients and candidates in a totally unbiased way.

Our network has consequently grown overtime but mostly because people know they can trust us. We proudly built a global network based on referral only.
