Most of our clients are from Latin America and in the following industries:
- Oil & gas
- Agricultural export
Most of them are raising capital for expansion or working on Joint Ventures in the US or Canada. We help them with international structures that either make their business more attractive to investors or create Joint Venture Partnerships.
International Private Investment Funds are Private investment Funds with a regulated Fund manager. For a non-US owner manager to raise capital from US investors, the Investment Fund or structure needs to be regulated. If the structure is not regulated the investors and their advisors will view that structure as “high risk”.
We spend a lot of time explaining to owner mangers of Latin American businesses that they cannot use the same rules and methods as US business owners.
Non-US businesses are viewed as high risk by US investors, their advisors, and their private banks.
So Latin American owner managers need to use international Private Investment Funds if they want to raise capital successfully in the USA.
