Allfunds Bank continues its international expansion process. Yesterday, the Federal Reserve Board approved their application to establish a representative office in Miami (Florida). The new office will be led by Laura González and will serve as Allfunds hub for US offshore activity. 

The statement released by the Board says that the office will act as a liaison with U.S. clients and prospective clients of the firm. Also it will "market and solicit new business for banking products and technological services provided by Allfunds".

The Board thinks that the firm appears to have the experience and capacity to support the Miami Representative Office. "Taking into consideration Allfunds’ record of operations in its home country, its overall financial resources, and its standing with its home country supervisors, it has been determined that financial and managerial factors are consistent with approval of Allfunds’ application to establish the office", they pointed out.

In a press release, Allfunds informed that González joined the firm in 2011 and has a wealth of knowledge on US offshore after working several years with the Latam market. Currently she serves as Allfunds Global Head of Wealth Management and prior to that she was appointed Head of Iberia and Americas at Allfunds covering both the strategic direction and the firm´s expansion model across the region. She also successfully led the opening of the Allfunds´ Brazilian office.

"We continue to fulfill our expansion plan. The opening of this office is a very important step for the company as it is the first office in the United States. This milestone reinforces our leadership as the world's leading wealthtech and fund distribution platform and our commitment to the North American market", said Juan Alcaraz, CEO of Allfunds.

Allfunds has several representative offices in South America and the Middle East and operates branches and subsidiaries in six countries. Its foreign operations include subsidiary companies in Brazil, Luxembourg, and Switzerland; branches in Italy, Singapore, and the United Kingdom; and other representative offices in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and the United Arab Emirates.
