Aviron

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 based in Santiago, Chile, with an extensive and successful track record of investing globally in private equity, real estate, and publicly traded securities.

Formerly known as “Devon”, Aviron was founded in 2009, as a traditional family office, although in 2016, the firm transitioned to a management-owned structure. Since then, we have continued growing a close relationship with our original investors, maintaining our independence and discipline throughout the investment decision process.

Our stable LP base, outstanding results over the last 15 years, and a creative, disciplined, and systematic approach to investing have allowed us to grow substantially and become a relevant partner for other global renowned investment managers across all our investment strategies.

The results obtained have been made possible within a positive and cooperative environment, working alongside our stakeholders, and maintaining a partnership-driven approach.

Currently, we manage a long-term capital base in an evergreen structure, with our team focused on investing and portfolio oversight, while decided not to expand our existing investor base.
