Ogier advises Compass on its business combination with Vinci Partners

Cayman Islands

1 min read

Ogier has advised long-standing client Compass on its strategic business combination with Nasdaq-listed Vinci Partners Investments Ltd (NASDAQ: VINP).  The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2024.

Founded in 1995, Compass is a leading independent asset management and investment advisory firm in Latin America with US$37 billion in assets under management and advisory.  Present currently in seven countries in Latin America, the United States and the United Kingdom, its combination with Vinci Partners, a leading alternative investment platform based in Brazil, will create a full-service Latin American alternative asset manager with more than US$50 billion in assets under management.

Ogier's specialist Latin American practice team (led by partners Tim Cone and Angus Davison and managing associate Tom McLaughlin on this transaction) advised Compass on all Cayman Islands aspects of the transaction, working alongside US counsel, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, and Chilean counsel, Barros & Errázuriz Abogados, among other advisers.

Having acted for Compass for a number of years on a wide range of corporate, private equity and hedge funds matters, Angus Davison, Ogier's lead partner for Compass, said "It's been a real privilege to accompany Compass on their impressive journey to date, and seeing this strategic alliance with Vinci Partners – a firm distinguished by its innovative leadership in the sector and region – is incredibly rewarding."

"Ogier is delighted to have supported Compass through this chapter, reinforcing our dedication to fostering long-term client success", said Tim Cone, co-head of Ogier's LatAm practice.  "This transaction further underscores our expertise in M&A transactions and our commitment to advancing the strategic objectives of our Latin American clients in this dynamic market."

Other members of the Ogier team advising Compass included counsel Jody Powery-Gilbert, senior associate Cornelia Zhu and associate Laura O'Byrne.
