When Fernanda Mello, Martha de Sá and Victoria de Sá came together in 2016 to found VERT, they already had in mind the three pillars that would support the company in the long term: governance, technology and people. From then on, they built a techfin that breaks paradigms in the securitization and structured finance markets in Brazil.
The first step was taken with CVCIB, an American private equity fund. Therefore, VERT was already born with an institutional partner.
The technology arm emerged from the incorporation of Hyperspace, which integrates the group nowadays as VERT Tech.
And since no one does anything alone (nor in trio), the founders insisted from the beginning on a human business, made by people and for people. Having a brilliant team is what drives VERT, and a culture of partnership is essential to get us where we want to be

VERT started out focused on serving the agricultural and real estate sectors. In 2018, the expansion of fintechs in Brazil inaugurated a new niche for the group, the financial securitization. The following year, once again the market demand led to the expansion of the business, now with an asset management company to provide investment fund management. In 2020, the expertise in agro and fintechs culminated in the launch, through a joint venture with XP Inc., of DuAgro, a credit platform that finances the purchase of agricultural inputs by farmers. The digital turn was consolidated in 2021, with the incorporation of Hyperspace.
With technology and an extraordinary team, we simplified the complex and built financial solutions on large scale
