2006-2007: Tim Purcell, Alfredo Irigoin and Carlos Ingham left J.P. Morgan and co-founded Linzor.
2007: Linzor closed on its first fund with $181.5 million of capital commitments and made its first investment (Hoyts, a regional cinema operator).
2010: After having previously collaborated on investment opportunities, Carlos Gomez (a former investment professional at JPMPLA) and Cipriano Santisteban (a former operating partner of JPMPLA) joined Linzor to raise LCP II.
2011: Final closing of LCP II with $465 million of capital commitments.
2015: Final closing of Linzor's third fund with $621 million in commitments and with the addition of two new partners, Matías Gutierrez and Jean Ide Gerard.
Before the founding of Linzor, most of the partners worked together at J.P. Morgan, in some cases, since the late 1980s.
Two of the founding partners, Tim Purcell and Alfredo Irigoin, were responsible since 1996 for the proprietary direct investments made by J.P. Morgan Capital Corporation in Latin America, and in 2000, they founded J.P. Morgan Partners Latin America ("JPMPLA"), one of the leading private equity funds in the region.
Through this experience, the partners developed a strong foundation in disciplined investing and a valuable network of professional relationships throughout the region.
