Arcadio Investments

Search Fund

Arcadio Investments is an entrepreneurial investment firm that aims to find, manage and grow a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) in Spain over the long term.

Arcadio Investment’s principal, Jacobo Vera, devotes 100% of his time and effort to a methodical search to acquire a business with a history of profitability and growth, which for succession or other reasons, its owners want to sell. Once the acquisition is completed, Jacobo will take over the management and day-to-day operations of the business, focusing on growing the acquired company and creating long-term value.

After ten years as a consultant at KPMG, Jacobo made the decision to leave behind a successful business career and explore a path as an entrepreneur. At INSEAD, where he did his MBA, he discovered the Search Fund model, a path aimed at entrepreneurially-minded managers like himself.

Jacobo´s proven professional track record at KPMG has allowed him to develop a wide set of hard and soft skills that will prove valuable for Arcadio Capital. His strong analytical skills as well as his strategic mindset will contribute enormously during the search process. Most importantly, his numerous projects on operational deployments as well as his leadership skills developed as a senior manager in a multinational corporation, make him a strong suit to become a succession entrepreneur.
