Ethical Values and Expertise in Institutional and Private Integrated Asset Management

My professional and human vocation is strictly related to the improvement of the Ecclesiastical asset management for serving the Mission in a more effective way. Although I was trained in a certain environment to which I am grateful, I do not belong to any specific Church’s Institute, I am a simple layman. This autonomy allows me to interact constructively with everyone, fully understanding their needs, objectives and charisms. I was able to lead many initiatives and projects for adding value to the Ecclesiastical assets and properties over time. In addition, international private groups and companies interested in real estate request my collaboration to find assets - belonging to the world of Catholic Institutes - that require requalification and regeneration interventions.

The approach based on transparency and expertise is part of my style. I offer solutions to my clients in the decision-making process, providing tools for a proper governance, but I never replace the competent bodies of each Institute. In recent years, my professional activities have been concentrated mainly between Italy and Spain. In particular, it is easy to note the marked feature of universality of the Ecclesiastical and Religious Bodies which makes them truly global and I have consequently become international with them. Thanks to the gift of having received an interdisciplinary training, a lay mentality and through some relevant professional experiences, I have been able to get a deep vision of the Mission and the Church Organization related to the economic dynamics of the Institutes involved.
