- Change in legal form reflects extremely positive business performance
Cologne, 17 December 2014 – OVB Allfinanz España S.L., an operating Group company of the European financial service provider OVB Holding AG, will be trading as OVB Allfinanz España S.A. in future. Its transformation into a stock corporation will take legal effect from the time of its entry in the commercial register at the start of the new year 2015.
“The new legal form reflects the success story of OVB Spain, which has been ongoing for more than a decade, and is a long-planned step towards a corporate structure in line with the company’s size and market positioning,” said Michael Rentmeister, CEO of the parent company OVB Holding AG. “This step also means more flexibility for the further growth and future development of the company.”
OVB Allfinanz España S.L. was founded in 2002 and has been expanding successfully and systematically since then. OVB is virtually unrivalled in Spain with its business model of comprehensive financial consulting. The company’s operating performance has been extremely positive in recent years.

Now we have chosen a legal form for our Spanish operating subsidiary that matches our aspiration of becoming the market leader in Spain,” continued Rentmeister.
As before, the three-person Advisory Board of OVB Allfinanz España S.A. will consist of Michael Rentmeister, Mario Freis, member of the Executive Board of OVB Holding AG, and Harald Ortner, who is also still in charge of operating business.
