Private equity in Latin America is in its infancy and Tigre Capital is positioned to bring this opportunity to American and international investors.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 20, 2016
Roberto W. Fiebig García-Colín, the President and CEO of Tigre Capital and a recognized expert in the field of private and raising capital for businesses, participated as a guest earlier this month on the highly respected Debbie Nigro Show, a radio program with an extensive following of entrepreneurs, fund managers, and business owners in the northeastern United States.
The podcast for the segment is available at the following link.
The latest recognition of Fiebig followed his participation as a speaker earlier in the year before the Austin chapter of the Asociacion de Empresarios Mexicanos (AEM) on “An Introduction to Private Equity.” At the campus of the University of Texas, Fiebig addressed the importance of a forward thinking strategy when it comes to raising private equity for business. Specifically, he gave his perspective on the current state of private equity and its future role in the U.S and Latin American economies, among other emerging markets.
“Private Equity has matured as an asset class in the United States as evidenced by sharply declining returns as well as a reduced amount of deal flow in the last three years,” said Fiebig, who is a founding member of TXMX, a business hub that promotes collaboration and investment development between Mexico and Texas. “Private equity in Latin America is in its infancy and Tigre Capital is positioned to bring this opportunity to American and international investors.”
Fiebig added that Tigre Capital is on track to become the largest private equity fund of its kind focused on Latin America.
