Talent development in the Partnership model

Because AINDA has as one of its major objectives to attract, develop and keep talent, it follows a “partnership” society model, that, unlike a patrimonial approach, allows for a dynamic leading team, with incentives all along the life-term of the CKD.

  • AINDA is constituted as a “Partnership” to attract and keep talent.
  • AINDA rewards contributions of its team members by offering the opportunity of acquiring shares issued by the society, which opens the way to permanent development of leadership.
  • Employees of AINDA create an individual development plan with their career objectives and growth expectations, together with the actions to reach them with help of the designated mentor. The development plan is reviewed each other under medium and long term points of view.
  • To keep the team’s incentives in alignment, each member of AINDA is evaluated each year on the following aspects:
      • Generation of revenue
      • Exhaustive investment process
      • Functions
      • Contributions
      • Leadership

Goldman Sachs strategic alliance

AINDA and Goldman Sachs & Co. Merchant Banking Division joined in a strategic alliance to identify opportunities and co-invest jointly in energy and infrastructure projects in Mexico. GSMBD has successful experience in managing over $150 billion dollars in private equity investments.

  • Confirms the intention to undertake joint potential investments in Mexico by establishing the mutual right of preference.
  • Seeks to capitalize on the combined experience and expertise of the parties by discussing industry tendencies and thus identifying, pursuing, evaluating and executing selected investments.
  • Allows for payment of sourcing fees if the project reaches significant progress.
  • Respects the fiduciary responsibilities of both parties.

The contract does not bind GSMBD or Ainda into associating with each other for concrete investment opportunities, and it is not granted that Ainda and GSMBD will make joint investments.
