LAVCA convenes Latin American and global PE/VC fund managers, institutional investors, family offices and other private investors at education, peer, and networking events. The association created an original professional development certification program in partnership with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
LAVCA produces proprietary data and analysis on fund manager and institutional investor activity in Latin America, including the most comprehensive and accurate source of PE/VC data on fundraising, investments, and exits. LAVCA Directories contain detailed profiles of PE/VC firms, Fofs, family offices, and pension funds active in Latin America.
LAVCA represents its members and the broader investment community in interactions with Latin American regulators and policy makers, and advocates for the implementation of best practices and international standards. LAVCA’s policy work is carried out in partnership with global and local industry players and peer organizations.
