Headquartered in New York with an office in Sao Paulo, Jaguar Growth Partners is a privately-held investment management firm specializing in real estate private equity in growth markets globally. Founded in 2013 by Gary Garrabrant and Thomas McDonald, Jaguar invests in and develops scalable real estate operating platforms and companies poised to grow in emerging economies characterized by an expanding middle-class and attendant consumerism, aspirational youth, urbanization and inefficient access to capital. Jaguar invests through managed funds, exclusively focused on Latin America. Jaguar plans to commence activities in Asia in 2017, initially focusing on high-yield debt investment in India.
Commencing their investment activities in the 1990's, Jaguar's team is recognized as setting a new standard in investing and building companies in the emerging markets. Jaguar is distinguished by an active investment style working in close collaboration with local operating partners.
