Santalucía Asset Management has bolstered its fixed income unit with the appointment of Luis Merino as head of the team.
Merino, named Santalucía Fixed Income Responsible, joins the team formed by Ignacio Díez and Carlos Culla.
He joins the firm from Wealth Solutions, where he was the manager's analysis and investments director since March 2017.
