Julius Baer bolsters Madrid-based Portuguese unit

Swiss financial group Julius Baer has appointed Nuno Sampaio and Telmo Fogaça as private bankers for its Portuguese division.

Both Sampaio and Fogaça join Julius Baer from Banque de Patrimoines Privés (Grupo Crèdit Andorrà) and will be based in Madrid reporting to Julius Baer Spain managing director Carolina Martínez-Caro.

Sampaio, who will be heading the Portuguese unit of Julius Baer in Madrid, comes from Banque de Patrimoines Privés where he worked as senior private banker for three years. Prior to that, he was partner of the Portuguese manager Atrium Investimentos being responsible for the institutional business. With over 25 years’ experience in the private banking industry, Sampaio also held a wide range of senior positions at companies including Citigroup, Mello Activos Financeiros, Santander and Deutsche Bank.

Joining also from Banque de Patrimoines Privés, Fogaça will be working as private banker in the team led by Sampaio. With over 20 years’ experience, Fogaça spent most of his career working at Banco Espírito Santo and at Banco Finantia.

The two hires follow a series of appointments made by the Swiss group in the last months – including that of Fernando Bertrán in October and that of Manuel Ruiz in September – aimed at boosting the company’s presence in the Iberian markets.
