Krese is a player in Peru’s capital markets focused on wholesale, before they were a financial concern as a hedge fund in New York bringing in capital from Latin America.

Krese prepared a fund proposal to create the project. They knew the government of Peru might want to be a minority partner for USD$100-$200m for its pension fund. The fund was created because the pension fund money could not be directly invested in the project.
