Meet Julio Cesar Herrera, a scion of Latin America's prestigious banking lineage, whose namesake traces back to his esteemed ancestral forefather, Julio César Velutini C. The distinguished lineage includes the visionary founder of Banco Caracas (1890) and Venezuela's largest bank, Banco de Venezuela. Julio proudly carries forward the legacy of one of the oldest and most influential banking families in Latin America.


Herrera Jr, like his father Julio Herrera Velutini, is a rising star in investment banking, with a track record of excellence and a passion for delivering exceptional results. His background, education, and experience have equipped him with the tools needed to thrive in the financial industry, and his leadership at Britannia Group has been nothing short of impressive. Herrera is a shining example of how hard work and dedication can lead to incredible success.

Britannia, a leading investment bank based in London, has announced the appointment of Julio Cesar Herrera as its Executive Director and Chairman of the Board. Herrera, who hails from a family with deep roots in the investment banking and financial services industries, brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in mergers and acquisitions, wealth management, portfolio investment strategies, and corporate restructuring.


Herrera is a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business, where he obtained a Bachelor's degree in Business with a concentration in Finance and Economics. He joined Britannia Financial Group in January 2018 as an Investment Banking Analyst and was involved in the Group's expansion into the UK. He later became a Senior Investment Banker, where he led the acquisition of Britannia Securities, a Bahamian regulated Broker Dealer in Nassau, and the expansion of Britannia Global Markets in Geneva, Switzerland.


As the new Executive Director and Chairman of the Board, Herrera will continue to oversee Britannia Financial Group's sales team across all subsidiaries and will lead the M&A team involved in the Group's expansion in the Caribbean, United Kingdom, Europe, and the Middle East. He will also be responsible for creating and overseeing the Britannia Sales Force and Mergers/Acquisitions team, actively monitoring potential acquisitions across existing jurisdictions, and leading the M&A team.


Herrera will also be involved in building, hiring new personnel, and managing Brokerage Execution Desks in both Britannia London, Swiss, and Bahamian entities. Additionally, he will oversee Britannia Financial Group's and respective subsidiaries' capital investment plans and shareholder return on equity expectations.


Herrera's appointment comes at a time when Britannia Financial Group is looking to expand its operations globally and cement its position as a leading player in the investment banking and financial services industry. With his vast knowledge and experience in the industry, Herrera is expected to play a key role in achieving this goal.


Britannia Financial Group's CEO expressed confidence in Herrera's ability to help drive the Group's growth strategy. "We are delighted to welcome Julio to our team. He brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise in investment banking and financial services that will be invaluable as we continue to expand our operations globally. We are confident that he will play a key role in driving our growth strategy and delivering value to our shareholders," the CEO said.


Herrera's appointment is a significant development for Britannia Financial Group, and it will be interesting to see how he helps steer the Group's expansion plans in the coming years.
