Interests: I am looking for a high-tech company that generates profits and has room to grow. I make personal investments in firms that are going public.
Background: Direct NASDAQ and New York Stock Exchange listings and institutional funding: Direct listings have emerged as an attractive alternative to traditional initial public offerings (IPOs) as the financial landscape continues to shift. A straight public listing offers the company a few appealing advantages. This method, we believe, has the potential to boost the company's growth prospects while also providing a variety of benefits to your shareholders and stakeholders. The traditional IPO process systematically underprices the stock of companies that use it. From 1980 to 2020, companies going through the traditional IPO process have underpriced their stock by an average of 20% and left a collective $200 billion on the table. In 2020 alone was even worse with an average of 48% underpricing and USD 30 billion left on the table. Underwriters and investment banks assist in the sale of stock in a company that is going public, they make substantial purchases at a significant discount for their account and their top customers. However, the shares are often sold by the investment bank at a discount to their genuine value, which has a negative influence on the company's total valuation.

Managing Director, BEQ Investment
Investment Bank in Bogotá, Colombia
Interests: We are a renowned investment firm actively seeking compelling investment opportunities across a diverse range of industries. Our rigorous investment approach is guided by a comprehensive set of criteria that we meticulously evaluate before making any investment decisions. First and foremost, we seek businesses with strong market potential. This entails identifying industries that are experiencing robust growth, have favorable long-term prospects, and exhibit a sustainable competitive landscape. We carefully analyze market trends, consumer demand, and industry dynamics to identify opportunities that align with our investment strategy. Financial performance is another critical factor we consider. We look for businesses with a solid track record of revenue growth, strong profitability, and healthy cash flow generation. Additionally, we assess key financial metrics such as return on investment, debt levels, and liquidity to ensure the financial stability and sustainability of the business. A capable and visionary management team is essential for the success of any investment. We place significant emphasis on the leadership qualities, industry expertise, and track record of the management team. We seek executives who demonstrate a clear strategic vision, effective decision-making skills, and the ability to execute and adapt to changing market conditions. Furthermore, we actively seek investments that offer attractive growth opportunities. This could include businesses operating in high-growth sectors, those with innovative products or services, or those with the potential to expand into new markets. We analyze market dynamics, competitive positioning, and growth drivers to assess the scalability and long-term potential of the business. Having a well-defined exit strategy is crucial for us as investors. We evaluate potential investments based on their potential for a successful exit, whether through an IPO, merger or acquisition, or strategic partnership. We look for businesses with clear paths to liquidity that can provide substantial returns to our investors. While we maintain a broad investment focus, some sectors that currently pique our interest include technology, healthcare, consumer goods, renewable energy, and sustainable industries. However, we remain open to evaluating opportunities in other sectors that meet our investment criteria. We approach each investment opportunity with thorough due diligence and a commitment to long-term value creation. Our experienced team of investment professionals diligently evaluates potential investments based on these factors to identify opportunities that align with our investment objectives and provide sustainable returns for our investors.
