Neuberger Berman has appointed Javier Nuñez de Villavicencio to lead its client relationship management and business development activities in Spain and Portugal, effective immediately.
Based in Madrid, Nuñez reports to Dik van Lomwel, Head of EMEA and LatAm at Neuberger Berman.
Van Lomwel says: “As we deepen and strengthen our client base in these key markets it is important to have experienced professionals with local expertise. Javier has been representing us for two years in an external capacity and we look forward to bringing him in-house.”
Nuñez has over 30 years’ experience including more than a decade spent at BNP Paribas Investment Partners in Madrid, where he was Head of Spain and Portugal. Previously Javier was at JP Morgan as Head of Equity Sales in Madrid and subsequently Head of International Equity Sales in New York.
Nuñez says: “Being familiar with Neuberger Berman, I believe it offers a compelling proposition for the Iberian client-base who, like many at this time, seek higher yielding investment solutions whilst also preserving capital. Neuberger Berman’s broad platform across all asset classes puts the firm in a strong position to help clients achieve their investment objectives. I look forward to building on the momentum we have already achieved in the region.”
