Rothschild & Co adds Senior Client Adviser to its Wealth Management business in Spain
Guillermo Moreno Fontaneda joins with immediate effect to meet increasing demand from clients following the launch of Rothschild & Co’s Wealth Management business in Spain in 2021
Rothschild & Co has hired Guillermo Moreno Fontaneda as a Senior Client Adviser to meet increasing client demand as its business expands. He joins from the Swiss bank UBS, where he was a Director and Client Adviser, Private Banking Iberia, based in Zurich and focused on UHNW clients. Prior to that, he worked as Relationship Manager for Mirabaud and Credit Suisse, both in Geneva. A very experienced Client Adviser, Guillermo started his career working as a Fund Manager for a variety of financial services companies in Madrid, having received his degree in Economics from the Universidad San Pablo CEU in Madrid.
Spain is an important market for Rothschild & Co, where it provides independent advice, discretionary investment management and advisory services to UHNW families, entrepreneurs, charities and foundations. The launch of the Wealth Management business in Spain in 2021 was in line with the group’s strategy to invest in markets where it has an established network and reputation. Since launch, the Wealth Management business in Spain has succeeded in increasing the company's presence and broadening its offering to both existing and prospective clients in Spain, working closely with its Global Advisory business, which has been established in Madrid since 1988.
Hugo Martin, country head for Rothschild & Co’s Wealth Management in Spain, says: "We are extremely pleased with the way that the Spanish Wealth Management business is evolving and how Spanish clients have embraced our long-term investment perspective and ability to offer independent advice. Our success to date allows us to further expand our team in Madrid and support our ambitions for this key market. We are delighted that Guillermo has decided to join the team and are certain that his extensive experience and excellent network will contribute significantly to our continued growth in Spain.”
