Four years ago the Rankia team embarked on a new adventure that would allow us to continue growing together with you. On 25 October 2017, coinciding with the third edition of Rankia Funds Experience Valencia, we opened our website www.rankiapro.com to the professional public.
In its fourth year, RankiaPro remains the leading communication channel among asset management professionals, thanks to the website that is followed monthly by more than 65,000 users, the magazine that more than 7,300 European professionals receive quarterly at its offices and the interaction on social networks such as Twitter and LinkedIn, as well as in physical events organised.
“In an increasingly changing environment, we at RankiaPro try to do our bit to help fund selectors in their decision making. The challenge is getting bigger and bigger as we tackle markets other than Spanish in Latin America and the rest of Europe.”Miguel Arias, CEO and co-founder at Rankia
After the pandemic, the asset management industry is looking for a new normality in a dynamic world which, in our profession, requires great adaptability to the new environment. This 2021 we have been able to resume our physical events; we did so with great enthusiasm on 21st of September at a breakfast with professionals in Andorra together with the asset managers MFS Investment, ODDO BHF AM, and Schroders. Later, on 6 October, we were able to share a meeting with professionals from Málaga, where we analysed the different investment opportunities offered by BMO GAM, MFS and Neuberger Berman.
But what we are most excited about this year is the sixth edition of Rankia Funds Experience Valencia, the benchmark event in the asset management industry, which will take place on the 28th and 29th of October at the Hotel Balneario Las Arenas. We will also be holding the Rankia Funds Experience Lisbon on the 18th of November, at the Hotel InterContinental Lisbon, and the Rankia Funds Experience Andorra, on the 16th and 17th of December at the Sport Hotel Hermitage & Spa.
Ever since the pandemic broke out, at RankiaPro we wanted to be with you, to keep you informed with the latest news, and the best investment alternatives through our weekly conference calls. Over the last twelve months we have been able to share the vision of fund managers who have helped us in our mission of helping professionals to make better investment decisions. During the Conference Calls we have talked about fixed income, equities, ESG, thematic funds, emerging markets, asset allocation, passive management, small & mid caps and so on, without leaving aside the macroeconomic news.
In addition to all this, we have sent our quarterly magazine to more than 3,500 professionals in Spain and Andorra. The next issue of the RankiaPro Magazine will be published on the Thursday 28th of October to coincide with the Rankia Funds Experience Valencia. In the meantime, here you can review the latest issues of the magazine published this year:
Last but not least, one of the sections that continues to be very popular with our readers is the professional of the month, in which we publish four monthly interviews with four professional profiles in asset management: Selector of the month, Manager of the month, Sales Manager of the month, and Advisor of the month. From within all the interviews we had this year, the most read ones were with Iñigo Iturriaga (Credit Suisse) as ‘Selector of the month’, and José Ramón Iturriaga (Abante Asesores) as ‘Manager of the month’.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have collaborated with us, and placed their trust in us since the beginning of this adventure, as well as all those who have read, followed, and accompanied us during these four years of life; without you we could not have done it. We hope this is the start of a long travel together.
Thank you very much for being part of RankiaPro!
