Claudio Brocado• Claudio Brocado is a seasoned financial professional with substantial corporate finance experience, followed by over twenty years in the financial services industry — sell-side as well as over sixteen years on the buy-side, including firms such as RCM (now Allianz Global Investors), Putnam, Fidelity and Batterymarch, an affiliate of Legg Mason.
