The Firm

Our credibility has been earned through consistent performance, strict risk controls, and the complete alignment of interest between partners and clients.

Vista Capital was founded in 2014 with R$30 million under management and was built from the ground up through the resilience of its partners who are passionate about research and asset management.

The trust that we have generated has allowed us to grow to more than R$ 4 billion.

The partnerships with our clients are thoughtfully built on transparency, always keeping in mind that client management is as significant as investment management to reach successful results.

The credibility earned is a result of consistent performance, strict risk controls, and strong governance policies.

The funds managed by Vista hold a distinguished position in their respective industries. The results are a consequence of our management method that has been able to take advantage of the good times and control for losses during turbulent events and periods.

In our team, we defend diversity of thought because it is crucial for our ability to think innovatively. Economists, engineers, lawyers, consultants, mathematicians. Macroeconomists and equity analysts. Top down strategists and bottom up investors. It is our competitive advantage to keep our workplace truly transparent and engaging, where the best ideas win.

Our risk controls are rigorous, tested in multiple scenarios and have proven to be functional and trustworthy. Our main goal is to avoid permanent loss of capital and we do not worry about short-term fluctuations in price or our funds’ shares.

At Vista, partners and clients share complete alignment of interests.  Our personal assets and our family’s assets are invested in the same funds as our clients and represent an expressive share of the total assets under management.

We do for our clients exactly as we do for ourselves. A policy of efficient alignment so that everyone is always paying attention to the best opportunities and aware of the risks being incurred.

We are confident that the combination of aligned investors, motivation and retention of the best human capital in the business, and strong governance will allow us to continue to deliver expressive results to our clients.
