Focused Strategy

GROWTH OF THE U.S. HISPANIC POPULATION

Our heritage and demonstrated success within the U.S. Hispanic market uniquely positions us to benefit from the growth of the U.S. Hispanic population, and its purchasing power – forecasted to reach $1.8 trillion by 2020.

We seek to partner with companies that currently target – or those who should be targeting – the U.S. Hispanic population, as well as companies that are taking ethnic brands, tastes, and styles to the mainstream population in the U.S.

FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESSES

Our real-life perspective developed from a long history of investing in, and operating, family-owned businesses makes us a partner of choice for families seeking liquidity, facing transition, or looking to maximize value.

We offer business owners a combination of growth capital and/or liquidity with customized capital solutions to meet a seller’s goals and objectives while allowing them the opportunity to participate in the growth of their business.
