The AMCS Group, the recently established, Miami-based third-party distribution firm, is pleased to announce the appointment of Fabiola Peñaloza as regional vice president. She joins the firm at an exciting time, just weeks after its launch announcement and confirmation of a new distribution relationship with Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI).
Fabiola will report to Andres Munho, managing director and co-founder, who is also based in Miami. She will initially be tasked with supporting Andres in continuing to strengthen the firm’s position with private banks and wirehouses in Miami, as well as helping to develop a number of new and growing relationships in Colombia, a country where she has previously worked.
Ms. Peñaloza has more than 15 years of experience in the financial services industry in the United States and Latin America. She recently moved to Miami from Colombia, where she worked for six years in Credicorp Capital Colombia S.A in Bogotá, leading the UHNW segment of the company from the Asset Management division. Previously, she worked in both investments and trading for some of the leading private banks in Miami and New York, including Standard Chartered Bank International, Credit Agricole Private Bank, Bank Boston International and Morgan Stanley.
Andres Munho, managing director, the AMCS Group, comments: “We are delighted to have Fabiola join the Miami team here at the AMCS Group. Her experience in the industry, including portfolio management as well as sales, will fit perfectly with our investment centric approach to client development and servicing. We all look forward to her contributions to our ambitious growth plans.”
Fabiola Peñaloza, regional vice president, the AMCS Group, comments: “I have known Andres and the team for several years as a client and have always admired the quality of their service. During their tenure at Old Mutual, the team established a great reputation and strong position in the industry for OMGI and I look forward to helping continue this growth trajectory as part of the AMCS Group.”
