With more than 25 years of experience in the financial sector, and after having worked for big financial firms like Morgan Stanley, AB Asesores or Citi, in 2005 I founded Gestión Fondo Educativo (GFE).

GFE is the first and only Spanish endowment asset manager. If in our early days we started managing the Universidad de Navarra funds, in 2013 we took a new step forward with the creation of GFED Aequitas Fund, the maiden Spanish mutual fund managed with an endowment investment style.

However this is not the end of the road. Together with my partners we have set up in 2016, Quadriga the first partnership of independent managers in Spain. Our aim is offering clients the best investment talent available in the market. With this move, we open the door to individuals and institutional investors of new alternatives different from the conventional ones offered by financial institutions and banks.

Entrepreneur, expert in my field and insatiable worker, my main target is to spread among investors the management style of the tremendously successful US endowments. Together with a great professional team, 100% aligned with this management style, our name begins to have a sizeable presence in the market
