RioBlanco Capital LLC (RBC) is premier Puerto Rico-based investment manager founded in 2015 by Gabriel Jimenez and Olivier Gillier, executives with extensive experience in private equity and real estate. RioBlanco provides liquidity and growth capital to underserved markets and assets. Our focus is on value creation and reimagined asset enterprises. We actively participate in the management and daily operations of the assets we invest in and believe in a “hands on” approach. Our geographical focus is on capital investment opportunities located in the US, Puerto Rico and Latin America. 

The RioBlanco team is filled with experienced individuals eager to support our efforts as needed; and we have world class resources in-house, and in our network available to assist. In addition, our investor base is comprised of a small group of large, sophisticated, and patient investors who share our view that the returns generated from investing in these types of situations are attractive enough to justify a different approach. 

With over 100 years of cumulative investment experience, and niche market expertise in investment banking, private equity and real estate throughout the Americas, RioBlanco Capital approaches each opportunity with a proven track record. Navigating organizations through change can be difficult; we have made that journey many times and recognize the time, resources and perseverance required to be successful. We draw on that experience to tailor workable solutions based on the unique needs of each situation.
