Our Family Office ethos and our expansion

In the 1940’s the Paz Gomes Teixeira Families focused on investing and developing real estate in their local region in Portugal, then into Spain and France.

During this period of both economic and political turmoil, the Family worked alongside local communities and governments to build sustainable social, residential housing and commercial developments. 

They realised early on that the strength of local communities came from building long term, trusting and reliable relationships, collaborating and bringing specific skills to the forefront to achieve a collective goal. Over the years the Family has been able to adopt more sustainable and ecologically building practices in their property planning and development. More recently they have started to articulate what had been inherent in their DNA to focus on the greater good of People & Planet wherever possible. This led to a greater focus in clean, renewable energy with the Family investing into West Africa.

From this expansion, and through meeting a diversified group of people with different backgrounds and expertise, the Family enhanced its diversification programme into the sectors it now invests in namely; healthcare, tech, energy and sport. 
 We believe that people can only grow and sustain themselves when they have the skills and capabilities to learn and progress and it is with this in mind that we strongly believe in investing for the long term, in seed stage companies to support them through to success, using our diverse relationships to provide them with specialised expertise, co-investment opportunities and overall strategic guidance.
