Portobello Capital  ha invertido €250M en siete empresas españolas durante los últimos dos años.

La última operación que ha realizado ha sido la inversión en Trison, líder mundial en marketing sensorial para espacios comerciales. Con sede principal  en La Coruña, tiene fuerte presencia internacional, presta servicio en más de 80 países y tiene oficinas, almacenes y showrooms por todo el mundo, en países como España, China, México, Estados Unidos y Rusia. Entre los factores que hicieron posible la inversión se encontraban: su potencial de crecimiento, gracias a la transformación incipiente de la experiencia del cliente en el punto de venta, las oportunidades que tiene la empresa de realzar operaciones M&A y su alta presencia en el mercado Europeo, exporta el 85% de sus ventas.

Desinversiones realizadas

En Junio de 2016 Portobello traspasó de golpe  las 7 participadas "históricas" a un fondo secundario capitaneado por la capital riesgo estadounidense HarbourVest. Este acuerdo,  permite retribuir a los accionistas de su primer fondo -que estaba dotado con 310 millones- tras casi una década desde que invirtieron en él. Además,  debido a las comisiones de gestión que seguirá percibiendo la cúpula de Portobello por gestionar estas empresas, la compañía se asegura seguir funcionando con comodidad mientras invierte el segundo fondo, cerrado el pasado año por 375 millones.

En  Enero de este año Portobello ha desinvertido en Festa, vendiendo el 80% de la empresa de moda a su fundador, Ricardo Ferrer. De este modo, el empresario, que controlaba el 20% del capital, vuelve a hacerse con el 100% de la compañía.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
