Jive and Mauá form a R$13 billion alternative investment house

The manager's Jive and Mauá Capital are merging their operations, creating a new home with R$13 billion under management - R$8.3 billion from Jive and R$4.7 billion from Mauá - and more than 350 employees.

Guilherme Ferreira, a partner at Jive, told the Brazil Journal that the merger was possible because the two companies operate in complementary segments of alternative investments.

On the one hand, Mauá has a tradition in real estate credit and brick assets; on the other, Jive has expertise in legal claims and distressed assets.

The two managers want to expand their areas of operation and were already structuring products in the infrastructure and sanitation sectors
