Almost 700 million people call Latin America home, but International investors have a meager allocation to the region. Despite attractive valuation, many deem the continent unworthy of their time due to political instability, among other factors. We beg to differ as we invest in compelling stories across different sectors. Latin America has some of the most competitive commodity producers globally but also has very attractive companies in industries not usually associated with LatAm, such as IT/tech, healthcare, e-commerce, and energy transition.
BTG Pactual Asset Management is a leading Latin American Asset Manager with over 400 employees and more than 40 partners, an AuM/AuA of US$ 79.8 bn (as of 2Q21), and under the leadership of our CEO Eduardo Guardia, former Finance minister of Brazil. Our firm has endorsed a strong sense of partnership since its inception, where employees may become partners based on a meritocratic approach. Also, our partners invest in the same strategies, and under the same conditions we offer to our clients, ensuring a strong alignment of interests across all stakeholders. Our range of funds consists of Equities, Fixed Income, Hedge Funds, Tangible Assets, Real Estate, Private Capital, and Special Assets. Most are ESG aware, given our firm’s strong commitment to sustainability. The BTG Pactual Latin America Equity Fund is a long-only fund that provides investors with access to an Alpha-seeking investment process. Our PM, Will Landers, has more than 20 years of experience managing LatAm funds and leading the industry's largest team of expert analysts. Boots on the ground are essential to our strategy; having a local presence grants us differentiated access to companies we invest in.
