Nala Investments and EMC Join to operate in Latin America

NALA Investments, a private investment company in the Hispanic market, and Evolution Media Capital (EMC), a sports and entertainment advisory firm, announced today that they have formed NALA EMC, an investment banking and advisory firm, headquartered in Mexico City, Mexico.

NALA Investments is run by Emilio Diez Barroso, the great grandson of the late Televisa founder Emilio Azcarraga Milmo, also known as El Tigre.

NALA EMC will tap production arm Nala Films' extensive influence and connections in Latin America and EMC's broad investor’s portfolio to spur more U.S. companies to invest in Latin American content of all types.

"We've been doing business in Latin America for many years now and it feels like a great moment in time for this partnership. I'm honored to be joining forces with EMC and establishing NALA EMC as the go-to gateway into the region for the global media and entertainment community," said Emilio Diez Barroso, NALA Investments.

"Fueled by strong economic growth, Latin America has become one of the most viable media and entertainment markets in the world," said Robert Stanley, Co-Managing Partner, EMC.
