Jaime Fernando Carvajal y de Urquijo is a Spanish economist, lawyer and aristocrat with an extensive professional career as a financier, entrepreneur, businessman, investor and philanthropist. He shared a private education with future king Juan Carlos, and became CEO of the Banco Urquijo from 1978 (where the owner the Marquis of Urquijo was mysteriously assassinated in 1980). He was a member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee and of the the Trilateral Commission.

Early life

Born in 1939, Jaime Carvajal Urquijo has a degree in Law from the Complutense University of Madrid and a Master's in Economics from the University of Cambridge. From 1948 he was educated together with Juan Carlos de Borbón, the future king of Spain, in a small school conceived for the then young prince. He obtained the National Baccalaureate Award.


In 1963 he began working at Banco Urquijo, of which he would be appointed president in 1978. During the constituent legislature (1977-1979), he was a senator by royal appointment, and was also one of the signatories of the Spanish Constitution of 1978.

In 1980 and after the first democratic elections in Spain since the 1930s, he was invited to be part of the Trilateral Commission and, shortly after, he joined the Bilderberg Club as a member of its Executive Committee. He would be appointed active but non-executive president of Ford Spain (1981-2002), Ericsson Spain (1995-2011), ABB Spain, Plus Ultra and Parques Reunidos.

On August 1, 1980, Manuel de la Sierra y Torres, Marquis of Urquijo and owner of Banco Urquijo, and his wife María Lourdes, was assassinated in their house in Somosaguas.[1]

Between 1983 and 1988 he was President of Banco Hispano Industrial and in 1988 he founded Iberfomento, a company dedicated to venture capital and advising on mergers and acquisitions that years later formalized a "joint venture" with the British investment bank Kleinwort Benson, on whose board would join. In 1995 he became the first president and co-founder of the Spain-United States Council, a civil, private organization supported by the governments of both countries, created to promote cooperation and links between Spain and the United States. In 2002 he became Managing Director & Partner of Advent International, one of the largest private equity firms in the world. Simultaneously, Carvajal Urquijo would be appointed Senior Advisor of Morgan Stanley, a position he holds today.

He has combined these activities with responsibilities such as the vice-presidency of Ferrovial, the Prado Museum Board of Trustees , the presidency of the Reina Sofía Orchestra and with the boards of Telefónica,Repsol, Unión Fenosa, Abengo , Asland and Indra Sistemas and some non-profit companies.

In 2014 he was co-founder and first president of the Endeavor Spain Foundation, a global organization that helps high-impact entrepreneurs with the ability to create qualified jobs, generate profits and inspire future generations of entrepreneurs.

Jaime Carvajal Urquijo is currently a trustee of the Zubiri Foundation, a trustee of the Hay Derecho Foundation, a member of the Social Council of the UNIR, vice president of the Institute of Directors-Administrators and an investor and advisor to new entrepreneurs.


In September 1962 he married Isabel Hoyos Martinez de Irujo, Marquesa de Hoyos and Grandee of Spain, with whom he had four children: Ana María (1963), Jaime (1964-2020), Victoria ( 1966) and Luis (1969). His parents were Isabel Urquijo Landecho and Francisco de Borja Carvajal y Xifré, 4th Marquis of Isasi and Count of Fontanar.
