The Parador Advantage

Parador Overview


Parador traces its origins to 2008 during a tumultuous period in global financial markets. The Global Financial Crisis of 2008 created a severe dislocation in asset prices around the world, especially in the OECD block. This created a unique opportunity for astute investors with "dry powder" to take advantage of distressed asset prices not seen in decades. 

To date, some of the asset classes in which Parador invests include: 

  • Alternative Investments 
  • Private placements
  • Hedge Funds
  • Private Equity
  • Venture Capital 

Tapping its network of global leaders, Parador is able to achieve "first look" of some of the most unique transactions in global markets today. Parador takes extreme measures to make sure that each manager and deal we transaction we invest in is fully vetted through rigorous selection criteria.

Parador conducts a highly rigorous selection process of each deal and manager that comes through our pipeline. Some of the criteria we use to help us during the mandate selection process - the "go or no go"  phase - include: 

  • ​Reputation of Deal Sponsor
  • Track Record of Manager
  • Structure of the Deal (Equity, Convertible, etc)
  • Size of transaction (Typically we're looking for +$25M equity ticket size)
  • Investment Lock-Up Period (In the case of Alternative Asset Managers)
  • Expected IRR
  • Exit Opportunities 


In certain cases, Parador structures strategic, long-term joint-venture partnerships with leading groups based on a deep alignment of interests. These strategic relationships allow us to provide our investor base access to "best of breed" deal flow from leading global sponsors.
