Ritossa Olive Oil & Family Office represents the distillation of six hundred years of
history - of a grove, a family and a region. The gnarled roots of the Ritossa olive
groves have persevered through war and natural disasters, through changes of climate
and country, and under the rule of warrior princes, wealthy merchant kings & modern
despots. The Family Office is known for their contrarian investments which have
included the US Subprime Crisis, the European Soverign Debt & Banking Crisis, and
strategic PE & RE allocations.
Mr. Ritossa has over 30 years of international financial markets and investment
experience. Prior to his family office role, Mr. Ritossa was recognised for his distinguished Wall Street career in New York having held senior executive positions at Nomura, Barclays Capital, Morgan Stanley, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Bankers Trust Australia. Mr. Ritossa holds a MBA graduating with Distinction in Finance from The University of Technology Sydney, and Harvard University.
Mr. Ritossa also serves as the Chairman of the European Union Sovereign & Investment Advisory Board, and sits on a number of other advisory boards.
