Business Development Boss Exits Coutts

Amisha Mehta, Assistant Editor, London, 5 November 2015


This publication more news of moves within the UK wealth management sector.

Coutts & Co’s head of business development, Sarah Wyse, has left, the bank has confirmed.

Wyse was appointed to lead marketing and UK business development in May 2013, having previously served as a consultant within Coutts. She also sat on the bank’s 10-strong executive committee, which was recently appointed following the sale of the bank's internationally managed private banking and wealth management business to Union Bancaire Privée.

Wyse was part of the team set up by Ian Ewart who is set to step down next year as part of Coutts’ broader restructure, which has also seen the departure of chief executive Rory Tapner.

The latest move follows a series of senior departures from the bank.  Most recently, Duncan MacIntyre, who founded and was global head of Coutts Private Office, left for Lombard Odier to become chief executive of its private client business in the UK.
