Península is a private investment firm, focused on long-term value creation with an owner-approach to investing. Founded in 2006 by Abilio Diniz, Península currently manages proprietary assets from the Diniz family across private and liquid investment vehicles. Main investment activities include direct private investments, a proprietary global hedge fund and a real estate portfolio. Our differentiations are: long-term proprietary capital, which allows flexibility and independence in resource allocation for optimized return, broad local and sectoral knowledge that ensures access to opportunities, and a team of multidisciplinary and experienced managers. As a national institutional investor, the company invests with integrity and responsibility, believing that, through its investments, it can support the development of new entrepreneurs and wealth generation.

For direct investments, the mandate is to invest in companies, with a high growth thesis in consumer-related sectors, developing new entrepreneurship and innovative models. Peninsula has an active approach as an investor, participating through governance structures in the strategic decisions of invested companies. ESG factors are included in both pre-investment analysis as well as post-investment follow-up, as metrics to assess risk and identify opportunities and competitive advantages of the target company.

As of late 2018, we have established an internal multidisciplinary RI committee, including executives across all asset classes within the company (direct investments, hedge fund/liquid investments, real state, backoffice, foundation), and along with senior partners and our investment board. The objective is to: formalize and institutionalize our responsible investment policy, covering majority of AUM. The Responsible Investment committee has include clear objectives and initiatives to be implemented by each area of the company and on each asset class. In addition, the committee is responsible for tracking progress, ensuring that the established goals are being achieved and complied.

The Staff Member has a duty to act in good faith and in accordance with the investor’s interests, with a view not to harming the fiduciary relation with the client. In this connection, the Staff Member should be aware of a possible conflict of interest situation, and whenever such a situation shall occur, he/she should immediately notify the Chief Compliance Officer thereon, and refrain from consummating the act or
omission giving rise to the conflict of interest situation until a decision to the contrary is made.
