Socially Responsible Investor

Vallis Capital Partners, being a Socially Responsible Investor, applies a "negative filter" when advising the funds under its management and potential investments by its subsidiaries, taking into account Environmental, Social and Governance criteria.

Vallis Capital Partners believes that a prudent and balanced management of these values is a key catalyzer to creating value in its investments because companies which are able to successfully mitigate these risks will deliver a better economic performance in the long term.

Vallis Capital Partners was the first Portuguese asset management company to have become a signatory of the "Principles for Responsible Investment" (PRI) of the United Nations and is committed to gradually enforce its adoption by its subsidiaries and by the companies forming part of its portfolio of Private Equity funds.

About Private Equity


What is Private Equity?

The Private Equity industry had its origins after World War II, in the 40s and 50s. Yet the notable growth of this sector took place in the '80s, mainly in the USA and the UK.
Unlike a typical financial institution, the general manager of a Private Equity takes control of the investee, appointing directors and actively contributing to the definition of the strategy and business plan of the company. Its ultimate goal is to add medium and long-term value to the company, preparing an Exit after a settled period.
Private Equity Firms traditionally raise money for their investments from institutional investors such as pension funds, insurance companies, investment banks and HNWI.
Investors are referred to as Limited Partners, while the management company is named General Partner.

What are the typical strategies of Private Equity?

  • Buy-Out: Typical investment strategy on mature companies involving the acquisition of equity stakes by the Private Equity. Often these investments are jointly executed with the management team of the company (Management Buy-Out). Acquisitions may be leveraged by external debt (Leveraged Buy Out) or fully financed by the Funds. Typically, the purpose of these acquisitions is to improve the capital structure of the company and its profitability through gains in operating efficiency;
  • Growth Capital: Investments in companies with some degree of maturity by increasing their capital in order to expand their activity. These investments usually imply greater involvement of the General Partner on improving operational efficiency and a commitment to focus on growth;
  • Venture Capital: Investments in companies at an early stage of development, usually with the purpose of developing an idea or a product with great growth potential;
  • Turnaround: Investments in companies with financial and / or economic difficulties involving a process of deep restructuring in order to create a sustainable business with a healthy capital structure and high economic value.

What are the advantages of having a Private Equity partner?

The contribution of a Private Equity company, goes beyond the provision of financial resources, and it is based on structuring ideas for creating shareholder value, namely:

  • Further alignment of interests between management and shareholders of the company (for instance, cases of absence of succession or the need of professionalization of management, among others);
  • Defining and implementing ambitious and long-term strategies, supported by the entry of fresh capital and know-how;
  • The experience and network of Private Equity executives is at the service of the subsidiaries, which complements the aptitude and quality of management.

To learn more about Private Equity, we suggest the video "What is Private Equity" and the book "The Little Book of Private Equity" published by ECVA.
