We advise companies in Latin America on mergers & acquisitions (M&A) and other important financial and strategic projects. We regularly work with successful Latin American business owners who are interested in selling their companies to large multinational groups. Our clients are often family-owned companies that seek a high level of support from us when embarking on an M&A process.


The success of our firm is built on the integrity and honesty of our team and in delivering our services with professionalism, skill and diligence. Confidentiality and discretion is at the heart of our operation and we take great care when entrusted with the sensitive commercial information of our clients. Our core objective is to create value for our clients and our fee structures reinforce this.


Based on many years of experience, we have developed a rigorous approach to preparing our clients for an M&A process that mitigates the challenges of completing M&A transactions in the volatile and illiquid private capital markets of Latin America. Our approach is based on sophisticated financial analysis, sector knowledge and deal management and is delivered through deep involvement in the project by our senior team members.


Valeo Capital Partners was founded in 2015 following long investment banking careers of its founders at Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan in the UK and the US, respectively. We are the only investment banking firm located in Central America that is led by former employees of global investment banks and global strategy consulting firms.

From our headquarters in San Jose, Costa Rica, we provide financial advisory services to corporations, investors and family offices in Latin America. We also work with private equity funds and multinational companies already present in Latin America or seeking to enter this region for the first time.

We add value by facilitating and de-risking important M&A transactions against the backdrop of Latin America's complex business environment. We do this by adopting our rigorous approach that we have developed by completing a large number of M&A and financial advisory projects in this region.

Our approach is built upon skills our team developed as members of major global firms. We add to this our local expertise derived from living and working in Latin America. This allows us to be especially effective in cross-border transactions where the importance of both a global and a local perspective is emphasized.

Our goal is to create value for our clients and be regarded as their long term trusted advisor.
