Commenting on the hires, Beatriz Sánchez, head region Americas, Julius Baer said: “These hires and the ones communicated during the past couple of months underscore and demonstrate Julius Baer’s standing as an employer of choice in this important region of the Americas. I am excited to welcome this team of exceptional professionals to our office in Rio de Janeiro which is an important part of our local growth strategy.”

Julius Baer has been efficiently growing its operations in Brazil since its initial acquisition in 2011.

The premier Swiss wealth management group has announced several major additions in recent months, including Sylvio Castro as head of client management Brazil, Eduardo Tabone as team head, and Andre Szasz and Joo Freitas as members of the Brazil investment management team.

Julius Baer distinguishes itself in serving Brazilian private clients through its closeness as well as its blend of global and domestic knowledge and investment material.

It works through the Julius Baer family office, which provides wealth services such as multi-custodial capabilities, Julius Baer advisory office, which focuses on worldwide investment and wealth planning solutions, and the Swiss-based Brazil International team.
