Mendes to boost LJ Latin profile

Global multi-family office LJ Group has appointed Rodrigo Mendes as a private client director within the group’s trust and fiduciary division. His primary responsibility will be to raise LJ’s profile within the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America markets.

LJ Group’s trust and fiduciary service provides on and offshore fiduciary and trust and corporate administration services centred on the wealth planning, investment and business structuring requirements of client families. LJ Group also provides investment advisory, direct investment and private office facilities.

Mendes has over ten years experience in the corporate and fiduciary services industry. Prior to joining LJ Group, he held the role of business development director at United International Group’s London office.

Marc Farror, head of trust and fiduciary, explains: “Rodrigo’s appoint comes at an important time for LJ Group as we embark upon a strategy to become recognised as a leading provider of trust and fiduciary services in both the Latam and other Spanish speaking markets. Rodrigo brings a proven set of skills and experience to this role and I am sure he will play a key part delivering our vision.”

Mendes said: “LJ Group’s appeal to established families is well known and based on a very successful track record, something which has enabled them to regularly grow into new markets. Clients are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities, including entrepreneurial families who may have recently realised gains through the sale of a business, but all are characterised by their need for highly individualistic solutions to wealth planning requirements.”
