Quaero Capital has appointed Amancio Perez as head of Iberian business development to enhance its presence in Spain, Portugal and Andorra, as well in the Latam markets.
Perez worked until recently as a senior sales manager at Pictet & Cie where he was responsible for developing private banking commercial activity in the Brazilian market with single/multi family offices, independent/external asset managers, financial advisers and banks.
With more than 20 years in the fund distribution business with Iberia and Latam, he led the opening of the Pictet Asset Management office in Madrid. He started his career in 1992 with Pictet in Geneva.
Jean Keller, chief executive of Quaero Capital, says: “I am thrilled to be working with Amancio – a highly skilled senior professional. He has an enormous amount of experience working in Spain as well as Latin America – I can think of no-one better to take Quaero forward in Iberia.”
Amancio says: “I’m honoured to be part of Quaero Capital, a fast growing asset manager targeting growth in new markets. There are not many players with the current environment available to invest on business development like Quaero. The Sicav has been registered in Spain and will soon extend to the Portuguese market, expecting to be added to the leading platforms. I’m also looking for a representative to cover the Latam markets, a challenging region.”
