Euromoney 40th anniversary special: Focus on Pátria Investimentos
The benefits of organic growth.
A private equity group focused on the Brazilian market, Pátria Investimentos has a tried and tested strategy that continues to produce returns that outshine even media-prominent names such as GP Investimentos, Advent and Gavea. "Pátria is not a name that is well-known globally but anyone that knows anything about private equity and Brazil knows exactly who these guys are... they consistently produce impressive returns," says a senior private equity player.
Unlike Gavea, Pátria’s private equity branch invests in majority stakes in family-owned companies and follows a hands-on approach by co-managing each investment with original management teams that are committed and very experienced in their business area. Unlike GP Investimentos, which has done large oil company deals in recent years, Pátria continues to focus on smaller $80 million to $150 million deals in consumer-driven sectors.
