Western Gate is an investment branch belonging to the Family Office of Luis Amaral and invests in private and listed companies principally in the retail and consumer goods sector. These are sectors in which the team has extensive experience and has developed its own vision on how it sees the future of these markets.
Our long-term investment philosophy has as its aim the building of a sound and sustainable performance so that wealth is preserved and transferred to future generations. The focus of investments is on corporations with a sound business model, an entrepreneurial strategy, a solid governance model, and adequate accountability and ethical standards. Always bearing in mind that fact based, data driven decisions and risk taking are key to success.
We aim to invest in companies when we sense there is space for value creation for all stakeholders, namely employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders and communities in which the company operates.
