The Spanish securities and asset management company GVC Gaesco has appointed Rafael Planelles as head of the company’s agent network aimed at boosting the business strategy of the firm.
In this new position, Planelles (pictured) will be responsible for leading, heading and widening the existing network of comercial agents focusing the expansion particularly in Madrid.
Planelles joins GVC Gaesco from Banco Popular, where he was responsible for managing the group’s agent network, which comprised up to 1,000 agents. Prior to that, he held various management positions which involved dealing directly with clients, but later he focused on the distribution of financial products through networks of agents.
The company signed a colaboration agreement with Global Alliance Partners (GAP) in November 2017 that enabled GVC Gaesco’s clients to benefit from GAP’s global network of companies, focusing on corporate finance and market capitals, asset management, analysis and brokerage services.
