A Latin America where access to financing is the engine, not the limitation.
Addem Group has developed a three-entity approach to increase liquidity in the LATAM capital markets. We act as scouts, funders, and monitoring agents within five verticals: fintech, real estate, energy, agriculture / sustainable foods, and healthcare.
We believe that money will become a commodity in the medium-long term, and financial players such as ourselves will compete with infrastructure rather than extensive checks. We aim to become LATAM’s most relevant liquidity provider by eliminating unnecessary debt intermediaries and excelling in our underwriting and servicing processes.
With our master servicer, we can monitor and service complex debt structures developed by Addem, Latus, and potential external sources.
Addem Capital is a Mexico-based private fund that provides alternative structured debt facilities within five industries: fintech, real estate, energy, agro & sustainable foods, and healthcare. We create and fund tailor-made debt facilities for LATAM-based companies that actively contribute to strengthening the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the region. We focus on companies that have proven their capacity to leverage technology for originating income-generating assets with forecastable and traceable cash flows.
Our focus on structuring debt facilities with complete traceability control positions us at the best risk-to-return ratio in Mexico.
All the monitoring and revisions on the collateral of credit facilities are done by our Master Servicer. Through its Internal Control Desk, the Master Servicer guarantees that all the performing assets satisfy the eligibility criteria for each facility. This gives us more power to make decisions on the line and be ahead of any risk.
Our fund and consulting firm have invested or worked with people from more than five countries, including Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Brazil, and US-based entrepreneurs working in LATAM.
Our three-entity approach enables us to offer a comprehensive service. We monitor ongoing facilities without reducing efforts on scouting new opportunities to consolidate our pipeline. We rely on third-party services to properly assess the quality of the asset and its originators’ underwriting process.

Buna is a sustainable and socially responsible coffee company created in 2012. Their coffee is the result of a long process that goes from the Mexican fields to consumers’ homes.
By traveling through the country’s ecosystems, the Buna team has learned about its biodiversity and its soils. This has allowed them to implement agroecological practices and reach long-term agreements with the producers, who mainly belong to indigenous communities.
Through Addem, we underwrite and fund structured debt facilities for asset originators. We provide the entire mezzanine position and up to 1/3 of the senior debt tranche available on each facility, reaching up to 50% funding volume on each credit line. Each debt facility is set to i) enable co-investments and ii) be sold to other institutional investors (secondary market) with a premium once its performance has been proven.
Through Latus, we help companies structure and successfully fund capital and debt vehicles. This allows us to enhance our investment process by extracting valuable data from companies that are not yet ready for institutional funding or fall outside our investment thesis.
With our master servicer, we can monitor and service complex debt structures developed by Addem, Latus, and potential external sources. We receive information on potential loans that our internal control desk analyzes to assess whether it meets the established characteristics. The aggregate data and experience gained from each serviced facility helps us improve the monitoring processes and robustness of our debt structures. The master service will eventually become an independent entity within the group.
