Allfunds expands its commercial structure appointing a new Regional Manager for Iberia and LatAm
December 14th, 2021 – Allfunds (AMS: ALLFG), the world’s leading B2B wealthtech and fund distribution company reinforces its commercial division appointing Ignacio Izquierdo Saugar as Regional Manager for Iberia and LatAm.
Reporting to Gianluca Renzini, Chief Commercial Officer, he will manage the relationship with Allfunds’ over 278 current institutional clients across Iberia and LatAm. Today Allfunds is headquartered in Madrid and runs offices in Bogota, Sao Paolo and Santiago de Chile, which enables it to provide global coverage and a fully local service to its clients.
The newly appointed regional manager will take office in January 2022. Previously, Laura González was responsible for Iberia and LatAm, in addition to her role as Global Head of Wealth Management. With Ignacio’s appointment, Laura will focus on Allfunds’ global expansion, although she will remain involved in the Iberian and Latin American markets in line with her duties with that client segment. Iberia is one of Allfunds’ core markets where the Wealth Management segment is particularly important. This new local and global approach will undoubtedly benefit a client base that is key to the entity. Ignacio and Laura will work closely to ensure a smooth transition and provide the continuous, dedicated and bespoke service that makes Allfunds a category leader.
Ignacio has vast international experience in the financial and insurance sector. Formerly, he was CEO at Aviva in Italy. He performed the same function at Aviva in Spain where he was also chairman of Aviva Gestión. During his career he held top-level positions for over 15 years at Grupo Santander in the Asset Management (Spain and LatAm), Santander UK and Santander Private Banking divisions. Between 2000 and 2002 he was Allfunds’ Commercial Director and an Executive Committee member.
He holds a degree in Marketing and a Master's degree in Finance by ESIC and completed ISDI’s Internet & Digital Business programme.
Juan Alcaraz, CEO of Allfunds, said:“We are delighted to welcome Ignacio once again and see him return to Allfunds, where he took his first professional steps. Appointing someone with his expertise is proof of our commitment to Iberia and Latin America and of their relevance in our global structure. We are certain that his international track record and know-how in asset management, private banking and insurance will further enhance the quality and performance of our commercial activity. At Allfunds we focus on delivering the best service and experience to our clients, and no doubt Ignacio will be up to the challenge and exceed our expectations.”
Ignacio Izquierdo, Regional Manager for Iberia and LatAm at Allfunds, added:“It's a pleasure to join a company like Allfunds that not only continues to place a strong focus on expanding its presence and talent to remain ahead of the fund distribution market, but also invests significantly in its ecosystem to ensure that its value proposition remains the most competitive one in the market. Being part of a project driven by innovation and solid growth is a truly appealing challenge.”
