Previously he worked in JP Morgan_Private Banking as Head of Relationship Management for Ultra High Net Individuals and institutional investors and before the experience in JP Morgan Private Banking, Levantini worked in Deutsche Bank Investment Banking, first in London, as Head of Equity Capital Markets Southern Europe and then in Italy, as Head of Italian Energy and Infrastructure Sector.

Fabrizio Rindi, Chief Executive Officer of Kairos, said: “Andrea’s entry fits perfectly into the new Kairos strategy aimed also at strengthening the team dedicated to private customers. Our business model is evolving towards wealth management, alongside our solid asset management business. We have decided to recruit a professional who has a consolidated background of experience not only in the management of high-profile clients assets, but also in extraordinary finance operations, because we want to increasingly guarantee our customers – often entrepreneurs – an excellent level of service in terms of quality and efficiency through a 360° consultancy. About the investment proposals for our customers, we can therefore continue to rely primarily on the experience of our professionals as well as on the know-how of our shareholder Julius Baer which boasts a wide range of products and services in the area of wealth management, asset management, consultancy and financing “.
Andrea Levantini commented on his appointment: “I am happy to join Kairos Private Banker team, which can also count on the close collaboration of Julius Baer, the leading Swiss asset management banking Group. The so-called high-networth customers are increasingly in need of wide-ranging consultancy for the enhancement of their assets, which often requires – and even more in such a complex period we are experiencing – both investment banking and extraordinary finance skills in which I have a solid experience. I am ready to face new challenges together with the consolidated team of a brand that continues to be a point of reference in the asset management industry.”
