Cayman based, Bolivia managed investment manager OTG retains Havener Capital Partners to enhance its U.S. sales and marketing efforts.
[Newport, RI] – October 2, 2023 - OTG Asset Management LTD (“OTG”) and sales and marketing agency Havener Capital Partners (“Havener”) are excited to announce a partnership.
In collaboration with world-renowned Peruvian chef and restauranteur Gastón Acurio (Acurio International), OTG is raising a private equity fund to develop additional Acurio restaurants across the United States. The fund is an opportunity for food-loving investors to savor in the surging popularity of Peruvian-inspired cuisine.
Sent to Madrid by his Congressman father to study law in the late 1980’s, Gastón Acurio secretly dropped out of school and found his way to Paris to attend culinary school. After finishing his studies at Le Cordon Bleu, he moved back home to Lima to open a French restaurant with his wife Astrid. Quickly recognizing that emulating European traditions was not his calling, he began to deeply study Peruvian cuisine and culture. The Peruvian traditions soon dominated the menu, and the restaurant (Astrid & Gastón) became a global success. Over time, he steadily rolled out new Peruvian inspired brands (La Mar, Tanta, and others) across the US, Europe and the Middle East. Along the way he became a household name in Peru and the unofficial global ambassador of Peruvian food.
The new majority shareholder of Acurio Restaurants sought the assistance of OTG to secure financing for their ambitious expansion plan. Acurio Restaurants intends to open approximately 20 new restaurants throughout the United States, and OTG has proposed the establishment of a Private Equity (PE) Fund based on their existing partnership model. The objective of this PE Fund is to provide funding for at least 8 of the proposed restaurants in Acurio Restaurants' expansion plan.
Havener will partner with OTG to enhance its sales efforts and content marketing capabilities.
“We love working with clients who are bringing something new to the table… and even more so if they’re bringing it to the dinner table!” said Havener founder and CEO Stacy Havener. “We’re thrilled to partner with OTG to help Acurio Restaurants continue to deliver on a proven restaurant model in an untapped corner of the market where most of the bigs don’t go.”
