HSBC Global Private Banking, Americas announced that Roberto Teofilo has joined as Managing Director and Senior Relationship Manager for the Brazil market. He will report to George Moscoso, Market Head for Latin America.
“We are thrilled that Roberto has joined HSBC,” said Moscoso, “he is a highly skilled professional who brings great experience over many years meeting the evolving needs of ultra-high net worth individuals and families in Brazil.”
Based in Miami, Teofilo will be responsible for bringing the global resources of HSBC to help ultra-high net worth clients based in Brazil manage, preserve, and grow their wealth.
With a career spanning nearly 20 years, Teofilo has worked at Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan, Merrill Lynch, and Credit Suisse. Earlier in his career, he worked in strategic planning at IBM in New York. He has a Master’s degree from the Thunderbird School of Global Management and earned his undergraduate degree from Auburn University where he graduated summa cum laude and was named the student-athlete of the year in 1995. Before moving to the United States, he participated in several professional tennis tournaments after a successful run in the International Tennis Federation’s Junior Circuits, reaching the top three in Brazil and Top 50 in the World Rankings in 1988.
“Brazil is one of our key markets within Latin America and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our team and our proposition so that we can best serve the needs of ultra-high net worth families and individuals,” added Moscoso. In addition to Brazil, HSBC Global Private Banking’s core markets within Latin America include Mexico, Chile, and Argentina.
The Brazil market team also recently added Cristiane Suzzio, as a Relationship Officer from JP Morgan and Rodrigo Medina, as a Client Service Executive from Banco do Brasil. These additions come after the Bank welcomed Alessandro Merjam and Monica Mavignier as Relationship Managers for the Brazil market team earlier this Summer.
