Profile

Born in 1963, after obtaining his MBA at IESE (in 1989), he joined Bestinver, where after 2 years as an analyst of Spanish stocks, he began to manage portfolios and funds.

In 1997 he also began to manage Bestinver Internacional taking it to the leading positions in the market of foreign funds sold in Spain, with an accumulated yield from January 1998 to June 2009 of 196% (9.5% Annual Average Return) versus -3.1% obtained by the reference index, the MSCI World Index.
