Approximately, 80% of its portfolio will be invested in areas called "prime".
«In this way, we achieve a conservative diversification, with 80% of its funds invested in stable prices and risk assets. With the remaining 20% we acquired the flexibility to not miss opportunities to create value ", explains Luis de Ulíbarri, lawyer and promoter of Almagro Capital, along with two other entrepreneurs, Francisco López and Felipe de los Ríos.

«Our investment proposal is part of the social need to propose solutions to the aging of the population and it offers elderly people an immediate alternative to the insufficient pensions they receive, "explains de Ulíbarri. The objective is to acquire housing for seniors looking for a way to monetize their savings on housing. We intend to democratize the investment in real estate through an idea that supposes a more flexible and efficient alternative than the reverse mortgage offered by the banking sector, or the sale of the naked property that private investors offer ».
