Barcelona-based Arquia Profim Banca Privada has appointed Mar Barrero as analysis director replacing José María Luna, who departed the firm some days ago.
Barrero, who has been a financial products and market analyst for the past decade, joined the Spanish eafi Profim Asesores Patrimoniales in 2008. She has also contributed to the firm´s investment strategy as a member of its investment committee.
Her appointment comes just a few days after the firm´s former director of analysis José María Luna announced his departure. Since joining Profim in 1996, he has been responsible for the firm´s investment strategy and for its fund selection unit.
Arquia Banca acquired the financial advisory firm Profim in 2016 with the aim of bolstering its private banking business. The acquisition gave as a result the current and merged company Arquia Profim Banca Privada.
