Jordi Mercader CEO at inbestMe

Jordi holds a degree in business administration and MBA from ESADE and UPC. Jordi has dedicated the majority of his career to the luxury, textile and retail sector, where he was fortunate to live the sensational transformation of Burberry (including its IPO), holding among others the positions of, CFO, COO and CEO in Iberia and President product division. In parallel and due to his curiosity for the financial world and the stock markets he began to manage his own financial investments more than 25 years ago. He is also an investor in some Startups (smartsea, bodi.me, wave). Inbestme is its own startup and is a consequence of his curiosity in searching alternative formulas and strategies of investment, with the client at the center. In this process he faced sometimes the frustration of not finding good alternatives in some of the traditional financial services which prompted him to investigate simple, transparent, efficient and low-cost systems for himself and his family and friends. Jordi brings to Inbestme his strategic vision and his experience with a long background in management, finance and as a private investor.
