Can you introduce yourself in a few words? Your age, your family situation and the country you live in?

Luca

My name is Luca. I am 27 years old, and I live in Milano.

Tell us about your career and how you joined Argos.

Luca

I joined Argos during the pandemic, which stepped up the pace of change exponentially in many areas and during which everyone took a fresh look at their own existence. For my personal development, this meant moving forward in my career and integrating an environment in which the human being is valued above all else, and financials are just a tool to invest in human capital. This is precisely what Argos stands for. Before Argos, I worked in consulting and was exposed to several different industries, companies, and projects. My overarching idea was that from diversity comes valuable experience. At Argos, I can leverage what I learnt in my previous experiences, with both multinationals and smaller companies, adapting complex solutions to the specificities of the individual companies we invest in.

Is this the path you thought you would take when you started your studies?

Luca

No. I loved business and strategic thinking but was unsure which business sectors were the best for developing these interests.

The world of private equity has changed a lot in recent years. What is your definition of PE? How do you see it?

Luca

The goal of private equity is to ensure companies have the right resources to reach their most ambitious targets. A private equity firm’s job involves developing successful relationships and nurturing growth across the board, from human development to the overall company strategy. Private equity has an obligation to work for the betterment of society, by ensuring that their portfolio companies achieve positive outcomes on environmental, social, and governance topics.

The feeling that guides you the most in your daily life?

Luca

Excitement.

How do you find balance in your life as a whole? Outside of your job, what are your passions or commitments?

Luca

In both my private and professional life, I am a very energetic and positive person with intense curiosity for what I don’t know. As an extravert, I enjoy being around pleasant people from different fields and constantly enriching my horizons. In my free time, I like playing futsal and going to concerts.

Do you have a special place that reflects who you are, that inspires you and contributes to your balance?

Luca

Fano, my hometown. The perfectly balanced city, with a great location (both seaside and mountains 10 minutes away), amazing culture (for a small town), and great food.

In another life, you would be... ?

Luca

A football player.
