About Us

Vision and dreams. And the journey that takes us there. That’s what a good life consists of. But to create value is where the magic lies. And to create value at scale takes a certain dogged determination and way of doing things through embracing the power of the human spirit and loyalty. These things come through good leadership. The product is key and must be best in class and delivered in a way where customers can objectively grade its quality to allow refinement towards perfection. These are the types of businesses we seek to connect with. Businesses with soul.

“At Pitalia we are focused on creating value through investing in great people.  Our values are underpinned by the fundamentals of good human nature and we seek to support opportunities in various commercial sectors and property, working with like-minded people who are determined to create value and improve the lives of fellow humans.”
