A PRIVATE ASSET MANAGEMENT INVESTMENT COMPANY
The Januarius Six-Spoke Wheel
Januarius Holdings Inc. (JHI) was established in 2008 as the personal asset management company of its Founder, Januario Jesus B. Atencio. It was founded on a firm belief that assets should not remain idle, and in fact, must be managed well to contribute significant value to society. JHI’s vision of asset management and stewardship is best captured by its logo – an Asian 6-spoke wheel where JHI’s assets must move in one direction, synergized at its core, capturing value and “creating decent profits decently”.

Upon his retirement in 2017 as President and CEO of 8990 Holdings Inc., and after helping grow the business to today’s largest and most successful mass housing home builders in the Philippines, JJ Atencio turned his focus to managing his personal assets held under his private asset management company – Januarius Holdings Inc.
With Januarius Holdings, Mr. Atencio is investing in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and technology-based start-ups that are already up and running, growing a stable clientele, with positive cashflows and have a clear dividend policy, and whose owners are looking for strategic investors who can provide not only new capital for expansion and growth, more value in terms of strategy, management advise and corporate governance.
“We want to focus on tech companies and SMEs because, while small business are the backbone of commerce and industry, SMEs and start-ups have a harder time getting institutional loans and capital. At the same time, they need more than just funding for growth, as they also need strategic guidance and corporate governance which we provide the companies we invest in. We are active investors who realize that investing in a company means investing in the people that run the business and also sharing in their vision.”
Mr. Atencio received the Outstanding Leaders in Asia Award from Singapore-based Asia Corporate Excellence and Sustainability in 2016, and was Finalist-Awardee for the 2015 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. He received the Entrepreneurship and Excellence Award by BizNews Asia in 2014, 2015 and 2016, and the coveted Management Excellence Award in 2017.
Mr. Atencio is a graduate of the Ateneo De Manila University, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in 1983. He pursued post-graduate studies in Applied Business Economics at the Center for Research and Communications – UA&P in 1986, and International Housing Finance at the Wharton Real Estate Center of the University of Pennsylvania in 2011. He completed the Executive Program of Singularity University, and is currently taking up the Owner-President Management Program (OPM53) at Harvard Business School.
JHI’s Board of Directors is composed of a diverse group of businessmen, professionals and practitioners who are considered experts in their respective fields, and have been carefully chosen to provide strategy, advise and direction for JHI and its activities.
