About us

Our company was founded on a simple principle:
a deep, rigorous investment process will differentiate us

We are local: Our team travels over 40 times per year for research, which means clients benefit from our global network and knowledge base acquired over 20 years of investing. However, we are based in São Paulo such that our clients can engage directly with decision makers.

We are investors: M Square Global focuses on making investments. Hence, we are a team predominantly of investment professionals who seek and monitor the best investment opportunities, instead of predominantly bankers.

We are aligned: We own 100% of our firm and this is our life project; all our personal international investments are made alongside our clients; and we will never sell or distribute any other firms’ products or services. Our investors have always been and will always be our sole source of compensation.
