We take direct stakes in high-growth companies, both public and private. We also invest in funds in which dedicated and experienced teams perform a very active portfolio management. We prioritize companies with high social impact.
We have a long term outlook. We prefer to establish a lasting relationship with the management of companies and funds in which we invest, independent of the current economic cycle.
We look for companies with a dominant position in the market or the potential for attaining it, as well as companies able to effectively establish barriers to entry and expand to new markets. Additionally, we select investment opportunities in which we can add value, such as when we can establish privileged agreements with management or can leverage direct previous expertise in a specific industry.
Our understanding of the Spanish market uniquely positions us to source and select the best investment opportunities through a unique and creative management focus oriented towards value creation and the generation of superior returns.
We also offer advisory to investors and shareholders thanks to our ability to provide a great range of services in cross-border investments and international development. This way, we help partners, co-investors and portfolio companies expand their markets and gain adequate investment opportunities in regions in which we have an active presence.
Our strategy is performed primarily through our Direct Investment Division (DID), where we directly invest our own resources. We also have an Asset Management company, that manages private equity and hedge funds. In addition, our venture investments are performed through Gala Capital Ventures, our wholly owned subsidiary focused on digital technology early-stage startups.
