The Portuguese Chamber welcomes Yunit Consulting as a founder member of its new initiative the Investors’ Circle

With over 100 staff at its head office in Lisbon, Yunit Consulting, led by its CEO Bernardo Maciel, has vast experience in consulting and project management, helping Portuguese companies to attract new investors and manage their growth efficiently and profitably . Their mission is to support Portuguese SMEs, making them more competitive, and equipping them with the tools they need to expand.

If you are a UK business owner interested in investing in a business similar to your own in Portugal, then the Investor’s Circle can help, since we can introduce you to off-market opportunities in Portugal in your chosen business sectors.
Via our chosen intermediaries like Yunit Consulting, the Investors’ Circle introduces British investors to established Portuguese SMEs and fast growing companies who may be seeking an industry sale, fresh capital, new shareholders, a succession plan for family-owned businesses, or strategic alliances with British firms. These are off-market opportunities of a highly confidential nature.

These Portuguese companies come from a wide variety of sectors, among them precision engineering, textiles, wine and food, manufacturing, furniture and home wares, and IT and fin tech, to name just a few. Typically, these SMEs will have a turnover of Euros 1-5 million, although many will be larger.

(Please note that the Investors’ Circle does not currently cover real estate businesses).

In Portugal, the Chamber has access to several senior business contacts in the country’s leading banks, trade associations and business consultancies, many of whom are advising Portuguese business owners on how to attract new investors. A limited number of these contacts are being invited to join the Investors Circle, membership of which is by invitation only.
In the UK, the Chamber is assembling a database of British buy-side brokers, private equity investors and individual business owners who are looking to invest into fast growing Portuguese businesses or well-established private businesses that are restructuring.

This exclusive Investors’ Circle, under the direction of the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK, is where private UK investors can access potential (non real estate) business investments in their chosen sector(s) in Portugal, via tailored introductions to the right people.
