Second close for Realza

Realza Capital has received strong backing from international investors who represent about 85% of its investor base. A final close is planned for the end of the first quarter.

Realza Capital was launched in 2007 by Alfredo Zavala and Martin Gonzalez del Valle. Zavala had previously been with Spanish firm Mercapital for 17 years. Gonzalez del Valle was previously head of Spain for Investindustrial and also spent six years at Mercapital. They have hired experienced private equity professionals and are now a team of seven. Realza Capital seeks to make control investments in Spanish firms with an enterprise value of less than €100m. The fund closed its first investment in October 2007 in Perio SA, a leading chain of dental practices in Madrid.
