Neuberger Berman has announced the opening of an office in Bogota, Colombia.
Bogota is Neuberger Berman’s second location in Latin America, following the opening of an office in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2011.
Mauricio Barreto will head the office and continue to lead the firm’s client efforts in Colombia, working closely together with Maximiliano Rohm, who oversees the firm’s efforts in Latin America.
Barreto will be supported by Ana Maria Roa Sarmiento and together they will service the local investment community.
“We have been working closely with Colombia’s sophisticated institutions for a number of years and want to further express our commitment to the region by establishing this local presence,” Dik van Lomwel, Head of EMEA and Latin America, said of the new office.
With the new office in Bogota, Neuberger Berman is now based in 18 countries globally. Demonstrating a growing international presence, 25% of the firm’s clients are outside the US and its range of Ucits funds available to non-US investors total $17.3bn (€15.4bn) invested in equities, fixed income and alternatives strategies.
