Clifford Chance advised Colony Capital (“Colony”) in its acquisition of Abraaj’s Latin America private equity platform.
The acquired platform has been renamed Colony Latam Partners. Since its inception in 2006, the platform has made 22 investments across Latin America. It currently manages over US$700 million and will continue to be led by the senior management team in place before Colony’s acquisition. The deal is valued at less than $10 million.
Colony will look to grow and expand this platform going forward.
The Clifford Chance team was led by partners Michael Sabin (Picture) and Roger Singer, and included Xi Bing Su, Mark Sheehy, Julia Lee, Daniel Rayner, Olya Kurilovich and Edwin Ramirez-Homs.
