Moneda Asset Management appoints Antonio Gil Nievas as CEO

Thursday, April 21, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - Moneda Asset Management announced the appointment of Antonio Gil Nievas as Chief Executive Officer with the aim to continue developing the international expansion of the company, which has offices in Santiago (Chile) and New York City (US).

The incorporation of the former J.P. Morgan senior executive strengthens the Moneda team. Founded in 1994, Moneda is a leading Latin America asset management firm managing over US$5 billion for institutional and private clients in Latin America and abroad.

Antonio Gil Nievas has 15 years of experience in investment banking and strategic consulting. He worked for over a decade at J.P. Morgan ́s London office in several senior management positions. Among other responsibilities, he was the Global Chief Financial Officer (CFO) & Chief Operating Officer (COO) of a portfolio of businesses which represented half of the Global Fixed Income division, including J.P. Morgan ́s Global Emerging Markets franchise. The Global Fixed Income division had revenues of US$15 billion in 2010.

Prior to joining J.P. Morgan, Mr. Gil Nievas worked for three years as a strategy consultant at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG). He has an MBA from Harvard Business School and a MSc. and a BSc. in Industrial Engineering from ICAI (Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Madrid).

Moneda investment philosophy is based on bottom-up, fundamental analysis of companies in Latin America with a long term investment horizon. Additionally, the firm offers its clients access to products beyond Latin America by advising global portfolios for its wealth management clients in addition to providing investment management services to Chilean institutional investors through strategic alliances with premier US asset management firms The Capital Group Companies and The Carlyle Group.

Since its inception, Moneda has distinguished itself as a leader in the asset management industry, launching the first fund investing in Chilean small and mid cap companies, Pionero Fondo de Inversión launched in 1994. The firm continues to apply the same investment philosophy to additional strategies investing throughout Latin America, such as Latin America high yield corporate debt (2000), Latin America absolute return (2006), Latin American small cap companies (2008) and Latin American corporate debt in local currency (2009).
