Chilean financial services VanTrust Capital has added two advisors to its wealth management unit.

At Itaú, she helped clients diversify their holdings and advised on mutual funds, stocks and certificates of deposit. Grollmus also spent about seven years in a similar role at Banchile and prior to that worked with affiliate Banco Edwards, a bank specializing in servicing high net worth clients.
VanTrust also hired Gabriel Andreani as a private banker, who joined on September 1 from Sura’s Chile brokerage, where he worked as wealth management advisor.
He has also served as an advisor at firms such as Zurich Administradora General de Fondos, Bice Inversiones and EuroAmerica Corredores de Bolsa.
Founded in 2006, VanTrust Capital offers asset management, structured products and brokerage services, according to its website. Its assets under management stand at roughly $500 million, chief investment officer Ignacio Barrera said.
The firm runs investment funds in the real estate and energy space and trades stocks, foreign currencies and fixed income on behalf of clients. VanTrust clears through Pershing and has BBVA among its custodians, Barrera said.
