BBVA has hired Javier Fidalgo as its new head of advisory solutions for project finance (PF), a new Madrid-based position reporting directly to Angel Arevalo, the Spanish bank's global head of PF.

Fidalgo told LatinFinance that the advisory team will target mandates across the infrastructure and energy sectors throughout Latin America and Europe.

“We are looking to provide our clients the most efficient financial solutions not only based on traditional lending, but also looking into project bonds, multilaterals and export credit agency solutions,” said Fidalgo. 

Before joining BBVA, Fidalgo spent 15 years with BNP Paribas in Madrid, Paris and New York. He covered both energy and infrastructure-related sectors throughout LatAm and EMEA.

In the recent past, BBVA acted as financial advisor for the financings of Abertis' Autopista Libertadores, Globalvia's Autopista del Sol and ISA's Interchile.

BBVA is currently acting as financial adviser to the Cintra-led Ruta del Cacao 4G highway in Colombia.
