The wealth and investment division of Barclays has boosted its team in East Anglia with a new senior hire for its Ipswich office.
Andrew Spivey has joined as a portfolio manager to run discretionary portfolios in the East Anglia portfolio management team (this team is part of the firm’s global research and investments department). Spivey was latterly a private client manager at Killik & Co in Ipswich.
East Anglia is one of the UK regions which Barclays has made an expansion focus and in the last year the firm has opened three new offices in addition to the Ipswich base - in Norwich, Cambridge and Peterborough. Barclays’ wealth and investment management team in East Anglia is headed by regional director Simon Smith and is now 24-strong.
