Our agile and innovative team has funded more than 180 projects totaling nearly US$1.5 billion. CIFI (Parent of CIFI AM) is one of the few permanent local players across the region with a specialization in middle market infrastructure in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The team diligently carries out the CIFI AM Investment Process, which outlines the necessary steps to identify sound investment opportunities that adhere to the Equator Principles and the IFC Perfomance Standards for sustainability.
Born an entrepreneur amid infrastructure projects, my 25-year transformative professional journey has led me to becoming a banker. As a founding member of CIFI, I have witnessed its continual growth as we develop fresh ideas and turn them into positive impact projects that add value to society. I view CIFI AM as an engine for sustainable development in the region, as we bring excellence in the execution of projects that seeks to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns for interested investors. Our team works within the highest standards and values to build a relevant and positive environment that our investors can take comfort in.
I have had the good fortune of being one of the founding members of the CIFI team and witnessing how the initial concept has materialized and evolved to what the company has become today. It is a privilege to work with the very talented team of professionals who, like me, are inspired and motivated to make a positive impact in Latin America.
As a biologist, I was trained to ask questions and solve problems. This prepared me for my role as a coordinator at the United Nations Environmental Program. After working to strengthen environmental governance across Latin America, I decided to apply my skills in the private sector. I feel passionate about what I do, but above all I believe in how we do it. Every day, we work closer with our clients to bring the best possible projects to our portfolio. CIFI has presented me with a platform in which I feel I can contribute to a larger goal.
I have lived in three Latin American countries, and studied international affairs and engineering management. CIFI is at the center of my professional ambitions, combining finance, Latin America and sustainability. There are very few organizations that are so closely aligned and compatible with my background. Being part of the CIFI team allows me to work in a dynamic, international and flexible environment that does good by stimulating the sustainable development of our region.
