We believe that a team of excellence, which works cohesively with passion and integrity, generates exceptional results.
"Aviron", French for rowing, reflects these values and the culture we promote within our firm and with our partners.

Great crews may have men or women of exceptional talent or strength; they may have outstanding coxswains or stroke oars or bowmen; but they have no stars. The team effort-the perfectly synchronized flow of muscle, oars, boat, and water; the single, whole, unified, and beautiful symphony that a crew in motion becomes-is all that matters. Not the individual, not the self.

Daniel James Brown, The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics

Who we are

Aviron is an independent asset management firm with an extensive and successful track record of investing globally in private equity, real estate, and publicly traded securities.

Founded under the name of Devon in 2009 in Santiago, Chile as a traditional family office, in 2016 the firm transitioned to an independent management-owned structure and expanded its scope to provide services to additional investors. In 2021 the firm decided to change its name to Aviron to reflect its values and culture.

Our skills, experience, and relationship network, combined with a disciplined and systematic approach to investing, allow us to deliver robust performance to our clients.
