“I feel really proud of having participated in such a relevant transaction for the Group, which ignited the institutionalization of our firm” María González de Apodaca
This is was a complex transaction to undertake. Dinamia was a quoted company with no employees and a management contract with N+1. And given its listed status, the team had to be meticulous in protecting the interests of all parties in order to reach an agreement. Dinamia was advised by Banco Santander and Uría Menéndez, and N+1 by BBVA and Linklaters. PwC ran the legal and financial due diligence for Dinamia and Deloitte for N+1. The legal complexity and regulatory implications of creating the first listed company to specialize in financial advisory services and the management of alternative assets in Spain were huge for this team. Not to mention the broader implications for what this meant for our brand and professionals.
María González de Apodaca said, “I feel really proud of being involved in such a relevant transaction for the Group. It was the starting of the institutionalization of our firm and I was able to live it in first person. It allowed me to grow as a professional thanks to the autonomy I was given to manage certain parts of the process including managing advisors and prospectus coordination. I also enjoyed working with the different teams within Alantra from the legal, financial, management and investment departments in a truly team effort.
