OUR GOVERNANCE

Manuel Ros

Founder, President & CEO

 

Manuel Ros grew up, professionally, within various worldwide markets, bringing along with his extensive experience in the financial sectors and construction business. His professional background comes from the experience as a market maker in structured products and the industrialization process in the construction and development of the real estate.

 

From 2001 onwards, Manuel began to build various companies and acquiring others operating in various industries including real estate.  He began to create a group of companies which led him to become part of the financial sector, active in construction and the purchase and sale of whole buildings between banks and private equity funds both in Italy and abroad. He was active in important acquisitions operating in major European countries, joining a group of banks as a financial adviser and agent representative.

 

His visionary leadership leads to the creation of REMAR GROUP, including companies around the world that are performing different business activities. When grouped together these provide a synergy of products and services that meet the needs of private and institutional investors on an international level.

 

Manuel’s concrete, innovative, and dynamic management style supports his innovative ingenuity associated with experience and expertise. Manuel Ros expanded REMAR GROUP and based the success on the philosophy "to shift the opportunities into reality", widening the business area and creating REMAR GROUP as the point of the synergies for the various financial activities carried out by the group worldwide. These include REMAR FUND, a Jersey-based private fund to support the business activities conducted by the group.

 

Among the latest steps performed in support of market demand, it highlights the creation of FX REMAR, a dedicated and exclusive FX Platform for online trading devoted to further expand the group.

 

Meanwhile, Manuel decided to link the finance field with the commodities market, establishing REMAR PETROLEUM to add a petrol and chemical business to the group. He created several partnerships with leading companies, closing international supply agreements concentrated in the Middle East and Asia.
