Where does our name come from?
THE PIONEERING SPIRIT OF MOUNTAIN CLIMBING
Mountaineering is hard.
It requires planning, dedication, precision, team work and a certain level of risk to reach the top.
The mountaineering reference in our name is a salute to the pioneers who have opened new routes to the top, who have braved critics telling them their endeavor was not feasible and who had to overcome a number of obstacles (both mental and physical) to reach the peak.
Like those pioneers, we have taken on the challenge to put the underdeveloped regions of Latin America and the Caribbean on the map for international investors. We strongly believe that there is a successful path to investing in promising companies while at the same time helping the people in this region to better lives.
The color ‘Emerald’ is a tribute to the lush landscapes that dominate this region.
