We combine market experience, knowledge and innovation in a single asset manager

Quadra is an independent asset management company organized as a partnership comprised by professionals with extensive experience in the financial market, especially in the origination, structuring and distribution of fixed income operations in domestic and international markets.

Quadra's focus is on the management of funds that invest in alternative and illiquid assets, especially precatórios, credit rights arising from lawsuits and non-performing loans. Our strategy is to identify alternative assets that allow us to capture the high illiquidity premium that the Brazilian financial market offers to investors with greater risk appetite and which can take longer investment horizons.

Quadra also acts in the discretionary or non-discretionary management of exclusive funds (managed accounts) as well as in the origination and structuring of fixed income operations in the domestic market, with emphasis on debentures issuances (focused on the water and sewerage, energy and transportation sectors), real estate fund quotas, real estate receivable certificates (CRI) and agribusiness receivable certificates (CRA).


Illiquid Assets

Expertise in the origination and management of investments in illiquid assets through specific Investment Vehicles (FIDCs). The Brazilian market allows for very high returns for investors willing to give up liquidity for longer terms.

Exclusive Funds

Structuring transactions and managing, discretionariy or not, exclusive investment vehicles for individuals.

Structured Credit

Origination and structuring of credit operations, especially in the infrastructure, real estate and agribusiness sectors.


Quadra has a well defined strategy, focused on the management of illiquid fixed income assets. Such investments provide high returns, but require great effort in the identification and evaluation of the associated risks. The in depthanalysis and thorough decision making process, along with our capacity to prospect and originate business opportunities are our main differentials.


Quadra's partners are co-investors along with their clients, meaning they are subject to the same risks and pay the same amount of fees and expenses as the investors. We understandthis results in a natural alignment between the managersof Quadra and their clients.
