Lamaria Capital Participates in 2018 SuperReturn US East Conference

Lamaria Capital, a New York-based private equity fund focused on identifying and participating in underinvested growth sectors in Georgia, announced today that Salome Gvaramia, founder and CEO of Lamaria Capital, participated in the SuperReturn US East Conference, North America’s largest private equity and venture capital conference, in Boston on June 18.

Salome Gvaramia participated in a panel discussion where she discussed the attractive investment prospects for international investors in the Georgian market.

“While many of the traditional investable markets for professional investors struggle with overheated valuations, margin contraction, geopolitical instability and regulatory uncertainty, Lamaria Capital believes that Georgia provides truly unique opportunities to invest in a market with business-friendly regulatory and tax regimes, appealing valuation multiples, a stable democratic government committed to the consistent rule of law, and a highly educated population," Gvaramia stated. "Tourists from around the world are discovering the charm of Georgia’s warm hospitality, rich culture, ancient history, picturesque mountains, and beautifully diverse landscapes at an extraordinary pace, and international investors are increasingly taking notice.Lamaria Capital is ideally positioned to deploy this international investment capital into Georgia, taking advantage of numerous first-mover opportunities and maximizing profit in a way that protects and maintains the pristine environment, has a lasting developmental impact, and brings large numbers of well-paying jobs to previously underinvested local communities throughout the country.”
