Viriato Capital: The next step in your company’s growth journey

We are an independent investment vehicle founded to acquire, manage and grow a private company based in Portugal or Spain


Viriato Capital was founded by Miguel Costa Freire and Pablo Alvarez Guerra, two executives and entrepreneurs with over 20 years of experience in management and investments. Viriato Capital is backed by a diversified group of international investors with a strong track record in investing and driving growth in small and mid-sized businesses

Investment Criteria

Our goal is to acquire a majority stake in an existing private company based in Portugal or Spain. We are looking for a healthy, profitable and growing business, with an owner looking to reduce his/her involvement in the day-to-day management of the company by selling his/her stake on the business. This way, Viriato Capital represents the opportunity for a liquidity event for the current owners of the company. Our plan revolves around innovation and growth, while ensuring a smooth transition to an efficient and sustainable leadership focused on the continuity of the business for all relevant stakeholders, including employees, clients and suppliers


Viriato Capital is committed to a smooth and professional process, grounded in the Partners experience in over 30 transactions. After the acquisition, we will lead the day-to-day management of the business in cooperation with the existing team and will devote all our time and energy to it. The goal is to seek long term, healthy and sustainable growth built on the foundations of business continuity and legacy of the current owners
