David joined Nazca in 2016. He is part of the investment team identifying and executing investment opportunities, as well as supporting the creation of value in investee companies. He provides support in monitoring Caiba, Phibo and Herbex.
What is your experience?
My first professional experience in the world of financial services was as an intern in Novumed, a strategic consultant in Munich specialised in the pharmaceutical sector, while I studied law and business administration at ICADE. After completing my studies, I worked for 3 years in Investment Banking in Madrid (Montalbán Atlas Capital / DC Advisory), which allowed me to obtain experience and join Nazca in October 2016.
What do you think makes Nazca different?
The team’s passion for in-depth understanding of the different opportunities we analyse, the desire to collaborate with the families with which we work and to support the management teams in completing their business plans.
What motivates you most in working with a management team?
Each one of our investee companies has management teams with extensive experience which allows you to learn from different sectors and different ways of generating long-term value. The experience of our teams allows you to apply lessons learned in different projects when analysing new situations.
What do you like most about your work?
The multi-sectoral focus combined with the high specialisation of the businesses we analyse in different niches of the Spanish and international market, which allows work to be dynamic and offers you a different experience each day.
What is your most memorable experience at Nazca?
It was during the final negotiations of a transaction in Barcelona. We had to go to the notary to complete a series of calculations and a more senior member of the Nazca team recommended I go running along the Carretera de les Aigües first thing in the morning to go to the meeting with a clear head. The moment of satisfaction after concluding the negotiations with that memory of the panorama of Barcelona is priceless.
How do you spend your free time?
I am passionate about my family, caring for my wife, visiting my parents and my brothers. I take advantage of my free time to continue training for long distance road races, reading about economics, philosophy and the news, and enjoying the company of my friends.
What social activities have you carried out / have inspired you?
I am a UNICEF collaborator and during my degree I worked in the legal department of the NGO Pueblos Unidos, assisting in matters of immigration law for foreign citizens in the district of Ventilla in Madrid.
