ABOUT Fortaleza Capital

Fortaleza Capital is an independent corporate finance advisory firm focused on assignments within the fields of M&A Advisory and Corporate Advisory. The business was founded with a clear vision of how to best support our clients’ needs for a focused view, strategic advice and reliable execution services.

We strive to find the optimal solution for our clients tailored to the specific requirements of a situation, driven by our central tenets of competent judgment, strong sector knowledge, relevant experience and accurate analysis. Timeliness, agility, integrity and professionalism are critical components to our proposition.

Our priority is to develop long-running and sustainable relationships with clients where we become a regular sparring partner on strategic matters.

OUR CORE VALUES

In our effort to provide the best advice, we pride ourselves on being independent and free of obligations toward other internal or external stakeholders.

Our approach entails professional handling of confidential information, not misrepresenting reality, being reliable and transparent in our intentions and actions, and forming well-founded and independent opinions.

Our advice strives to be unbiased and based on a long-term perspective on what we believe is in our client’s interests.

We focus on three sectors: Packaging & Paper/Board; Recycling, Waste Management & Energy; and Services, Media & Technology.

In these sectors, we have built a solid track record and have developed an intricate and evergrowing network of senior executives and industry experts.

Our services within these sectors are further sharpened through our exclusive focus on M&A Advisory and Corporate Advisory services.

Our solutions our developed by driving straight to the heart of a matter, not on convoluted analyses.

As required, we form a dedicated team to advise on a particular situation, consisting of experienced corporate finance experts in The Netherlands and internationally with whom we have established long-term working relationships.

Importantly, we oftentimes add seasoned industry executives and experts to our advisory teams. which have first-hand, germane experience within the relevant sector.

We organise ourselves in teams in order to combine relevant experience and skill sets in a flexible, no-nonsense way that is tailored to the particular situation.

Achieving the most favourable outcome for our clients requires full “hands-on” involvement and commitment from our advisers throughout a transaction process, from inception to completion.

We set ourselves apart through commitment of senior advisers that are always actively engaged, from the commencement of an assignment throughout project execution.
