Isidro Helder has over 15 years of experience helping thousands of international organizations expand throughout the world, becoming a true expert in the legal and financial services industry. Beginning his career with Citco, setting up and managing Dutch companies for fund and multinational corporate clients was his first exposure to the world of global expansion services. From there, utilizing his law degree, Isidro became Legal Counsel for Smartmatic, a multinational technology company, and was later Managing Director of their EMEA HQ. In these roles he helped the company expand throughout Europe, giving him the experience of being an actual customer in the global expansion services market, and helping him understand that the process should be more streamlined, and in essence more joyful.

Isidro next became Commercial Director for TMF Group, where he sought to connect a client’s specific needs, their local requirements, and the service delivery necessities in each jurisdiction. He then led Business Development teams throughout Southern Europe as well as the Middle East and Africa, and in 2019 he was promoted to TMF’s Global Head of Business Development for Fund Services, Capital Markets and Global Entity Management. In this role he built and led a specialized sales team and helped define TMF’s Global Entity Management solution throughout the world.

By 2021, recognizing the market needed a truly client centric service platform more genuinely focused on the best interests of their clients, Isidro joined the founding team of HSP Group, based in Barcelona. With likeminded professionals, and as VP and Head of Europe, Isidro has launched and leads the expansion of HSP Group to customers throughout Europe and Asia. Especially focused on those based in the United Kingdom and EU, his sales, marketing, business and channel partner development, and client relationship management focus in this region gives the businesses Isidro knows so well, including private equity and real estate fund investors and international corporate clients, the opportunity to join him on this journey, as true partners.
