Ephor Group SPM&I is a limited partnership fund that provides liquidity and growth capital as well as management expertise to mid market private companies in Central America.
We are extremely bullish on the opportunities available in many emerging economies. Entire business service industries in these economies are positioned for rapid growth through consolidation and across to additional capital. These businesses are benefiting from a convergence of factors including:
In particular we see a strong need for institutional equity and mezzanine financing that provides capital that is simply unavailable in these economies. In many respects, these emerging economies and the environment for investor capital represent a similar set of circumstances of those in North America in the 1970's.
The effect of incomplete financial markets is that they eliminate an entire segment of financial transactions necessary to fully develop the economy. Specific problems include:
The time is right to begin an orderly, sustainable investment of mezzanine and equity money into these opportunities. Ephor Group is committed to bridging the gap in Central America between entrepreneurial and corporate businesses both financially and operationally.
