UK’s Liontrust expands Iberia distribution

Gonzalo Thomé has joined Liontrust as international sales director to focus on enhancing the company’s distribution across the Iberian peninsula

He was previously at Banco Inversis in Madrid, where he was deputy sales director and senior fund analyst. Prior to that, Thomé was a fund of funds manager at Banco Sabadell.

According to Liontrust, he has been recruited in response to “growing demand for our Dublin Ucits range”, which includes equity, fixed income and sustainable funds.

As a key part of his role, Thomé will provide support to local funds buyers.

Strong Spanish relationships

James Beddall, head of international sales at Liontrust, said: “As a former analyst and fund of funds manager, Gonzalo has extensive experience and knowledge of investment funds.

“He also has great understanding of the role and responsibilities of fund buyers and has strong relationships in Spain.

“He enhances our distribution across Europe, as we now have a six-strong sales team with a presence in most of the major markets.”
