Pedro Coelho - Head of UBS ETFs Spain


UBS Asset Management has appointed Pedro Coelho as Head of UBS ETFs Spain. Pedro will be based in Madrid and report to Simone Rosti, Head of UBS ETFs Southern Europe.

In his role, Pedro will be responsible for business development for ETFs and will aim to grow and strengthen the professional client relationships in all key market segments (asset managers, pension funds, insurance companies, private banks, family offices and independent financial advisers), together with the UBS AM Spain business led by Juan Infante.

UBS ETFs has a long-term track record of providing index-based investment solutions to clients. In 2001, UBS launched its first ETF. It was the beginning of a success story and today UBS is the fourth European ETF provider and one of the fastest growing in Europe, with around 29 bn USD in AUM (source: ETFGI, July 2016). In Europe, UBS offers a wide range of ETFs, replicating more than 170 fund and currency share classes, covering equities, fixed income, commodities and alternatives. UBS ETFs is managed by UBS Asset Management, a large scale investment manager with a presence in 22 countries. UBS AM offers investment capabilities and investment styles across all major traditional and alternative asset classes to institutions, wholesale intermediaries and wealth management clients with about 660 bn USD of AUM and a long-term commitment to passive management (215bn USD in indexed products and managing passive assets for 30 years).

Pedro started his career in the financial sector in 2000 in Lisbon and before joining the UBS ETF team he worked for 10 years in NN Investment Partners, in Madrid and Lisbon, where he was a Senior Clients Director for Iberia, Latin America and US Offshore. He has a Bachelor's degree in Economics by ISEG Lisbon School of Economics and Management and an M.B.A. by NOVA School of Business & Economics.
