G5 Partners’ Private Equity group is an independent investment firm managing assets for local and foreign investors. Our main objective is to identify, invest and create value for private equity opportunities in Brazil.
G5 Partners’ Venture Capital is an independent investment firm, which is always looking for the best opportunities in the local market and is focused on investing in medium-sized companies with high potential for value generation.
We are a high-performance team with relevant experience in the financial market and a strong knowledge of the Brazilian environment. In addition, our corporate structure is based on the partnership model, fostering a meritocratic culture and aimed at retaining talent in the long run. Our managers always act from an entrepreneurial perspective.
The vast network of relationships maintained by G5 Partners enables direct access to entrepreneurs and companies in any industry in which the Fund wishes to access.
Our partners actively participate in the strategic decision-making process and on the direct monitoring of the day-to-day execution of the business plan. We actively manage our portfolio of companies – even if we are only the minority shareholder – and work alongside entrepreneurs in the value creation process.
The seniority and experience of our partners allows for a sophisticated view of investment opportunities, combining a deep assessment approach of the companies to be invested with the best financial instruments and transaction structures available.
We follow strict codes of conduct, as provided in the documents below.

Discipline is the cornerstone aspect when it comes to long-term investments, especially in emerging markets such as Brazil, as it not only creates value when investing but also when divesting the companies in our portfolio.
“Hands On” Approach from Senior Partners
We get deeply involved in defining the strategy and monitoring the daily operations of our companies, always listening to the business owners while maintaining awareness of the responsibilities of the management team. We believe that an active management is fundamental for value creation, even when the Fund has a minority stake.
In order to properly serve all the companies in our portfolio and keep our team focused, we avoid investing in a large number of companies.
We seek to thrive through partnerships, especially with the founder/entrepreneur of the companies we invest in. We believe the best way to succeed is by having complementary competences. Thus, we act as co-investors while also investing in other funds that share the same philosophy.
Professionalism and Intellectual Honesty
We strive for professionalism in all our activities, and we believe this is crucial for developing and maintaining a trustworthy relationship with our partners and investors. We acknowledge different points of view when closing deals and we always question our assumptions while seeking for the best solutions for our investors.
G5 Venture Capital believes in long lasting relationships and therefore engages its entire team in investment projects. One of the key components of our investment philosophy is based on G5 Partners’ “hands on” approach when it comes to our portfolio companies.
We use fundamental pillars as the base for our investments and we are fully committed to the pursuit of high ROI obtained through strict principles of capital allocation.

- We seek for asset light companies, especially when recurring revenue and strong barriers are needed to enter;
- We identify high performance entrepreneurs with clear strategic views;
- We focus on companies that foster entrepreneurial cultures;
- Discipline is the key factor when evaluating future investments;
