About Us

We are a private investment management firm headquartered in Madrid and established in 1998, with over 80 transactions executed.

We invest in companies that are in growth stage, led by management teams that inspire our trust and to which we can add value through our expertise and knowledge of the local market.

We select our investments according to socially responsible principles, considering potential for long-term profitability and social impact. We strongly believe that funds and companies with high ethical standards also provide superior economic returns.

Our independence from financial groups offers us high flexibility in our transaction profiles and a higher execution speed.

Additionally, we provide financial advisory services to our investors and portfolio companies in order to support their growth.  We also assist and represent international companies and other investment firms, supporting their operations both inside and outside of Spain.

We invest in companies that are in growth stage, led by management teams that inspire our trust.

Philosophy

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, and through Gala Capital Desarrollo, our private equity General Partner. We also develop venture investments through Gala Ventures, our wholly owned subsidiary.
