We strongly believe that our clients are
our best ambassadors
Ricardo Faria | Founder and Chairman of Granja Faria (since 2006)
“Euro Latina Finance acted as advisor to French group Elis to whom I sold my company Lavebras in 2017. Although they were acting on the buyer’s side, I appreciated their firm yet empathic and balanced approach to negotiations, which has led us to maintain a close relationship until today.
Their excellent understanding of cultural differences between Europe and Brazil as well as their close proximity to their client proved to be key assets in the success of this transaction.”
Thierry Fournier | CEO Saint-Gobain Latin America (2014 - 2021)
"Euro Latina Finance advises us on several M&A transactions and strategic partnerships in Latin America. They have accurate strategic vision, efficient tactical approach and excellent execution.
I also appreciate their strong corporate DNA and their deep-rooted connections in Latin America which allow them to offer a genuine strategic support to a large group already well established in the region such as Saint-Gobain."
Juan Rafael Pérez Vélez | CEO BTG Pactual Colombia (since 2016)
"Euro Latina Finance advised the shareholders of Bolsa y Renta in the sale of our company to BTG Pactual, a highly confidential process due to the sector's sensitive nature and the strong regulatory standards applying to both the acquirer and the seller. Euro Latina Finance fully mastered the technical challenges of a mixed cash/stock payment structure, the competitive tension and the not-so-obvious cultural differences involved in the transaction.
They managed to perfectly defend the interests of our firm, preserving the maximum secrecy while nurturing a very close relationship with BTG Pactual."
Xavier Martiré | CEO Elis (since 2008)
"Euro Latina Finance advised Elis on half a dozen acquisitions in Latin America, especially on our two landmark acquisitions in Brazil as well as on our first acquisition in Colombia. Euro Latina Finance also supported us post-acquisition in the constitution of the Board of our Brazilian subsidiary.
On top of their deep knowledge of the business environments in Latin America, they stand out by their true grit to successfully complete projects and their ability to accurately detect weak signals which can lead either to deal failure or success."
Sandrine Asseraf | Group Managing Director Webhelp (since 2015)
"Euro Latina Finance acted as M&A advisor to Webhelp in the acquisition of Grupo Services, one of the leading service providers in customer experience and BPO in Brazil, with more than 9,000 employees. With this transaction, Webhelp sets foot in the Brazilian market, which is highly strategic for the company since it accounts for 25% of the overall BPO industry in LatAm.
Euro Latina's involvement was remarkable throughout the project and fully in line with the culture of excellence of our company, that normally does not rely on external advisors for its M&A transactions. The strong commitment of Euro Latina's team both in Brazil and France, combined with their excellent leadership of the main aspects of the project were essential to the negotiation process. After the acquisition, Euro Latina Finance also advised us with our strategic discussions around the post-acquisition integration of Grupo Services and Webhelp."
Claudio Sánchez Ferre | Colombian entrepreneur, Board member of several companies and notably President of Bogotá’s Chamber of Commerce (principal member since 2018)
“I have had business relationships with Euro Latina Finance for over a decade, the firm having advised various investment projects in Colombia and South America. They truly stand out for their professionalism, their rigor and their proven ability to navigate between different business cultures, combined with a strong identity and international reach, in Europe and beyond.
Their knowledge of the local ecosystem and their high level networks in the region have really strengthened their corporate culture.“
John Ozinga | CEO AccorInvest (2014 - 2020)
“Euro Latina Finance has advised AccorInvest on several transactions in South America, more particularly on the acquisition of the property company of the iconic Hotel Santa Clara in Cartagena in Colombia.
Euro Latina Finance was perfectly suited for this transaction thanks to their capacity to entangle a complex shareholding environment and their knowledge of the local business communities in Latin America. “
François Salamon | President Schreiber International Inc. (2016 - 2020)
"Euro Latina Finance has been advising our company for several years as strategic and M&A advisor, supporting our development in Latin America.
Their deep understanding of our business in the dairy industry, their operational expertise in the food retail sector, their objective recommendations as well as their attention to detail are of utmost importance to me: they are truly committed not only to helping their clients make the right decisions, but above all, to refraining them from making bad ones."
Jean Eichenlaub | CEO Qualium Investissement (since 2009)
“Euro Latina Finance has advised us in Latin America on several build-up transactions of our portfolio companies.
Their very solid networks and multicultural teams make them one of the very best specialists of Latin America and a first-rate advisor for international groups wishing to enter the region through external growth.”
