A collaborative approach to investing

Founded in 1996, ACON’s cohesive leadership team has been investing together for over two decades. Our investing platform benefits from largely separate investment teams and distinct funds focused on the U.S. and Latin America. The teams share resources and industry expertise across regions and take advantage of best practices in managing investments, overall fund administration, accounting and investor reporting.
