BME has appointed Gonzalo Gómez Retuerto as general manager of BME Renta Fija - the BME Group company that manages the Private and Public Debt Markets - following the retirement of Julio Alcántara. Gómez Retuerto, until now deputy general manager of BME Renta Fija, will combine his new responsibility with the position of managing director of MARF, which he has held since the creation of this market in 2013. Gonzalo is an Economist and an insurance actuary from Universidad Complutense de Madrid and holds a Master’s degree in Finance from ICADE’s European School of Finance. He joined BME from the AIAF Market, where he had been working since 1992.
Gonzalo Gómez Retuerto has always worked in the area of fixed income markets, in which he has held different positions of responsibility, and has played a decisive role in the development of the AIAF Market, which was integrated into BME in 2006. This market ended 2018 with an outstanding balance exceeding 1.5 trillion euros, with a traded volume so far this year of 200.7 billion euros, up 45.1% year-on-year.
"At BME we appreciate Julio Alcántara’s contribution to the creation of BME’s Fixed Income market and we have no doubt that Gonzalo Gómez Retuerto will continue this task, consolidating his achievements and contributing to strengthening the Spanish Fixed Income market as one of the most innovative and dynamic ones in the world", said Jorge Yzaguirre, Markets Director, BME.
