Rubicon Capital Advisors (“Rubicon”) is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Mexico City, which will be led by Santiago Ortiz Monasterio who has joined the firm as a Senior Director.
The Mexico City office joins Rubicon’s established Bogotá office in offering core investment banking advisory services throughout Latin America to clients in the infrastructure, energy, and utilities sectors.
“The opening of our Mexico City office is an integral part of Rubicon’s strategy to further strengthen its presence in both Mexico and the broader Latin American market,” stated Rubicon CEO Conor Kelly. “This expansion furthers our strategy to invest in growth markets and support our regional and global clients in their broadening investment appetite and strategies.”
Santiago joins Rubicon from GBM Infraestructura (“GBM”), a leading Mexican energy and infrastructure fund, where he has worked for the past 7 years, serving the last 4 as the Fund’s Managing Director. Santiago was responsible for overall investment strategy involving assets in the energy, transportation, environmental and social sectors. During his time at GBM Santiago structured over 800 MW of installed capacity for renewable and thermal projects, as well as several toll roads and integrated water systems throughout Mexico.
“It’s an immense pleasure to be joining Rubicon and its leadership team as the firm continues to grow globally,” noted Rubicon Senior Director Santiago Ortiz Monasterio. “I look forward to utilizing Rubicon’s expertise across the infrastructure, energy and utilities sectors and building on the firm’s accomplishments and global investor network in providing client services in the dynamically growing and evolving Latin American market.”
Rubicon’s expansion in the region follows a recent transaction closing announced last week around an equity interest sale of a Mexican toll road and its associate operating company. In addition, the firm oversaw an acquisition of a Mexican toll road asset in May 2018. Rubicon’s Bogotá office opened in late October 2018 in tandem with the establishment of a broader Latin American team and key hires of Managing Director Andrés O’Byrne and Senior Director Juan José Montoya. The firm has been active in Latin America since 2011.
