Our value creation vectors
Specialization, growth and internationalization
We are a team with broad experience in both regulation design and management of the sector value chain. We are investors with a specific focus.
Our team has successfully managed companies that overcame challenges very similar to those our target companies are facing today.
A part of our team is focused on helping our investees in their internationalization processes, with a local presence in the target markets and a network of collaborators to make it possible.
We work side by side with our investees contributing with our knowledge and experience to strategic decision making.
Our team guarantees privileged access to decisionmakers and door-openers in each market.
In accordance with rigor and transparency standards, we apply industry’s best practices.
Proprietary deal flow
We focus on proprietary deals that we design together with our future partners. We build the business plan together.
Our industry knowledge allows us to be faster than other players in the decision making process.
We seek to transform and improve our society and environment through our investees. For us, CSR is a way to create long-term value in the companies in which we invest.
We invest in growth
With a particular focus in Europe and Latin America
We can accelerate the international expansion of our investees thanks to our infrastructure, contacts and experience. Thus, we can help our companies to:

- Identify business or strategic opportunities (acquisitions, JVs…)
- Select high quality local advisors and teams
- Shorten the time required to access clients, partners or business opportunities
Our team has proven experience boosting growth of companies through:
- Operational improvements and optimisation of their position in the sector’s value chain
