Grant Leon, Senior Vice President at Capital Group, said: “Alberto’s appointment responds to our strategy of expanding our presence in the Spanish market while also ensuring we continue to deliver world-class client service. This is also aligned with our goal of continuing to establish new – and deepen our existing – relationships with intermediaries and our distribution partners in Spain and across Europe.”
