ABOUT US

Our Brand


According to The Prince from Machiavelli (1513), “A prudent leader, however, will be able to anticipate problems long before they actually arise, using virtù to forestall what would otherwise be great difficulties.”More on: http://www.philosophypages.com/hy/3v.htmAnother way to explain our brand is “Virtù is that parcel of success that does not rely on coincidence or luck.”


Our partners


Partners of Virtù are top performing professionals with expertise in diverse industries such as financial markets, consumer product goods, strategy consulting, automotive, home appliances, food and beverage, hospitality, among others. This expertise is the most valuable investment we bring to our projects, and besides ensuring performance it helps to develop new high performing leaders within our invested companies and clients.

Our Origin


The first investment done by Virtù happened in 2009 in the women’s accessories segment. Our strategy was to grow a strong brand into new markets, & to improve margins by increasing average customer value & conversion. During the tenure of this first investment we achieved an outstanding yearly rate of return of 36%. This early success motivated Virtù to keep on searching for opportunities and finding new ways to do what it does best – business development.

Our Principles


We believe that success happens when preparation and perseverance conspire until it can grab an opportunity.Success is not inherited; success does not just happen. It needs to be chased; it needs to be fought for. To succeed, we operate by the following principles:
1. Faith: More than defining who you are, it will define who you will be.2. Sweat: Yes, life is hard. So do your best and make it happen.3. Blood: It is not for free. Making dreams come true will require sacrifices.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

How can we partner?


We accept the fact that the best tactic to create value will not always be a joint capital investment. Sometimes, the best arrangement is an intellectual and leadership contribution we can bring to partners. In these occasions, Virtù Equity brings its team of highly specialized experts to design and execute business development opportunities for strategically selected clients. Our engagements are unique in the sense that we focus solely in business development, and that we only engage when we can really spark disruption.
