In 2010 we forged a formal partnership with Blackstone, one of the world´s leading investment and advisory firms, which purchased a 40% interest in Pátria. We have known and respected Blackstone and its principles for over a decade and they share our core values.
The relationship with Blackstone will add greatly to the level of resources we have available to meet the needs of our clients and investors, to participate in the continued robust growth of Brazil, and to expand our perspective through an affiliation with a truly global financial powerhouse.
Our partnership will combine Pátria’s successful investment record and unparalleled local expertise with Blackstone’s global scale and resources. Together, we have the capacity to undertake larger transactions, channel greater investment into the local economy, and connect portfolio companies and clients in Brazil with opportunities around the world. We look forward to working with Blackstone to create value through our joint efforts in Brazil and, over time, throughout Latin America and the rest of the world.
