Senior Coutts Figure Takes Up Jersey Post, Heads Crown Dependencies Arm

The bank announced a senior appointment in a market that incorporates the UK Crown Dependencies: Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man.

Coutts, which recently announced full-year financial figures, yesterday said one of its senior figures has moved to Jersey to lead its Crown Dependencies business. The role is a newly created one, a spokesperson for the bank told WealthBriefing.

Dennis Howard (pictured) has served in private banker and leadership roles across domestic and international businesses of Coutts. He has led the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific markets, and specialised in ultra-high net worth non-resident and resident non-domiciled clients. In total, Howard has worked in the sector for more than 15 years. 

“Dennis brings extensive experience in wealth management, a strong network and long history with the bank, which is brilliant for our customers as he leads our talented Coutts Crown Dependencies team,” Oliver Holbourn, chief executive, RBS International, said.

The private bank said it is working on reopening newly-refurbished Coutts Crown Dependencies’ client offices on Broad Street, Jersey.
