As a result of the significant expansion process seen in 2019, partially due to the agreements with Credit Suisse, fundinfo and Nordic Fund Market, Allfunds - the independent global leader in wealth management technology - is strengthening its global sales structure by splitting it into two new divisions.
The two new divisions, Pension & Insurance and Wealth Management, which directly report to Gianluca Renzini, Deputy General Manager and Chief Commercial Officer, are led by two managers with a long experience in Allfunds: Licia Megliani (Country Head for Italy for 12 years) is Global Head of Pension & Insurance Division; Laura González (at Allfunds for almost nine years and currently Regional Manager Iberia & LatAm) becomes Global Head of Wealth Management Division.
The new organizational structure will enable Allfunds to strengthen its leadership in the wealth-tech industry, where the company already plays as the largest third-party fund distribution platform in Europe as well as one of the leaders globally, with an offer of nearly 87,500funds from more than 1,650 fund houses, agreements with over 685 distributors (commercial and private banks, insurance companies, fund managers, international brokers and specialised companies) in 51 countries.
Following the new global role assumed by Licia Megliani, the position of Country Head for Italy is entrusted to Stefano Catanzaro, former General Manager for Italy of BNP Paribas Securities Services, where he gained over 20 years of professional experience, holding various roles of responsibility such as Head of Asset & Fund Services and Head of Sales and Management Relations for institutional investors. Catanzaro, who will report to Gianluca Renzini, coordinates a team of more than 60 people and will manage institutional relations with clients, Authorities, providers and Italian Asset and Wealth Management companies in constant alignment with the headquarters in Madrid and with the two new commercial divisions.
In addition to her global role as Head of Wealth Management, Laura González will continue to act as Regional Manager Iberia &LatAm until her future replacement is appointed during 2020.
Gianluca Renzini, Deputy General Manager and Chief Commercial Officer of Allfunds, commented: " The new organizational structure of the global sales management, along with the strong expertise of all the selected managers will bring added value on strategic planning, global management, specialization by expertise, constant innovation of technological solutions and services in support of the specific needs of wealth managers around the world, while contributing to the development and to the access to new countries. The new divisions will work alongside the local Country Heads to combine global expertise with the specific features of local markets, increasingly improving our offering. As a pioneer in the digital revolution applied to the asset and wealth management industry, Allfunds is preparing for a new phase of strengthening and growth, at a time of great transformation in the industry where Fintech, Big Data and Digital Transformation play a leading role.”
