A Global Merchant Bank with Andean Roots
Prior to joining KIT Capital, while at Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse First Boston and the World Bank, our principals advised some of the largest private companies and governmental agencies in the Andean region–including Bancolombia, the Colombian Ministry of Communications, Ecopetrol, PDVSA, the Sindicato Antioqueño, Southern Copper Corporation, Telebras and Telefónica (Perú). As a pioneering investor on the Equities Risk Arbitrage desk at Goldman Sachs in the 1990s, KIT Capital founder Kaleil Isaza Tuzman co-managed one of the largest pools of capital at the time dedicated to active public equity investing in Latin America. Immediately prior to founding KIT Capital, Kaleil led the implementation of the Republic of Colombia’s e-government program. He was also a key figure in the U.S.-based lobby for the transformative Plan Colombia initiative implemented in 2000, and personally accompanied President William J. Clinton on the first U.S. presidential mission to Colombia since the Kennedy Administration.
