Tuesday, July 07, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - São Paulo based Mauá is celebrating its 10th anniversary, noting that this past decade has been one of significant economic, political and social challenges. It has been a period that tested the resilience of financial institutions, the corporate sector, asset managers, and governments globally.

“We are proud to have worked with our clients, partners and employees over the past 10 years. Although it has been a bumpy road, Mauá has faced it head-on with persistence, determination and dedication. As we celebrate our anniversary with a renewed sense of accomplishment, we are pleased to share important news that we believe will help pave the way for another successful decade,” Mauá Capital said. Since July 1st, the company has rebranded to Mauá Capital.

“We believe that excellence in performance is a consequence of excellence in people. Thus we are proud to announce new partners joining the team: Júlio Siqueira Araújo, former Executive Vice-President of Banco Bradesco; Luis Alberto Garcia, former co-founder of Corttex Capital and Treasurer at Banco ItaúBBA; and Eduardo Camara Lopes, former co-founder of Corttex Capital, CEO of Ashmore Brasil and partner at Banco ItaúBBA; along with additional partners in the Macro and Compliance teams,” the firm added.

Macro, Equities and Real Estate strategies

Mauá said it would remain focused and dedicated to adding value through three strategies: Macro, Equities and Real Estate. In its Macro funds, Mauá Capital aims to provide the best riskadjusted returns through robust macroeconomic scenario construction and a highly selective asset and risk allocation.

In Equities, Mauá Capital follows a value-oriented long-term activist approach. The firm believes that by having full engagement in its investments, including direct board participations and appointments, it will be able to succeed in providing investors attractive long-term returns through a group of activist and risk arbitrage funds. Furthermore, it is proud to have played a central role in several capital market transactions in Brazil during past few years.

Within Mauá Capital’s Real Estate investments, the company is involved in three different sectors. The logistics investments are comprised of warehouse developments for income, for example via buildings rented for the health sector. The main focus of the Real Estate group, however, is investments in residential developments with units inside de SFH (National Financial Housing System). Currently, Mauá has participated in the development of about 9,000 residential units with a total PSV (Potential Sales Value) of around R$ 2 billion, generating more than 10,000 direct jobs.

International expansion and long term focus

“We believe our clients are our most valuable asset. We began our firm focusing strictly on local high net worth investors. Over the past 10 years, however, we have been able to significantly expand our client base into solid relationships with both local and global institutional investors. This newer client base now accounts for a significant percentage of our assets. Mauá possesses a broad and diversified investor base, which has now been investing with us for a long time span. We currently have approximately BRL 1.6 billion in assets, with around BRL 900 million in long-term investments, with lock-ups longer than 3 years,” the company said.
