Javier Allende

Javier joined Nazca in 2018. He is part of the investment team, identifying and executing investment opportunities, providing support for the investments in Terratest and One Shot Hotels.

What is your experience?

After graduating in Administration and Business Management from CUNEF, my first 4 years of professional experience were spent between Investment Banking at RBS and Project Finance at Globalvia. In 2016, after completing an MBA at INSEAD, I joined Bain & Company as a consultant, where I had the opportunity to participate in several commercial due diligences for investment funds and to carry out several strategy definition projects.

What do you think makes Nazca different?

Our extensive experience in investing in family companies and the countless complex situations we have faced during over 18 years make me firmly believe that Nazca is unique in the national panorama.

What motivates you most in working with a management team?

What motivates me most when working with a management team is not only the possibility of supporting them and collaborating with our experience in achieving their objectives, but also the possibility of learning from them as experts in their business.

What do you like most about your work?

What I find exciting in my work is the possibility of facing constant challenges; not only in seeing a multitude of sectors and businesses, but also the possibility of facing challenges of a diverse nature (e.g. financial, legal, commercial, etc.) while seeking opportunities; and the transaction and monitoring in itself.

How do you spend your free time?

At weekends I spend time with my family and friends. I mainly divide my time between trying to improve at golf and discovering new restaurants and places for enjoying good food and conversation.
