Barclays W&IM Names New Head Of Charities

Barclays has handed the role to a familiar face.

Barclays Wealth and Investment Management has appointed Kathleen Britain as head of its charities division.

Previously, Britain was head of citizenship for the UK and Europe at Barclays where she led the development of the regional shared growth ambition strategy. While at Barclays, she also held other leadership roles within the real estate team and was responsible for strategy, operations and finance, the bank said in a statement.

Britain joined Barclays in 2005 from Wachovia Bank, an investment bank that was acquired by Wells Fargo in 2008, where she worked within wealth management in New York and San Francisco.

In her new role, she will be responsible for managing the strategy and proposition for UK-based charity clients within Barclays W&IM. Britain will be based in London.

“She brings with her an in-depth understanding of the challenges facing the sector that is crucial in order to support our clients to achieve their financial objectives and deliver the best solution for them,” said Dena Brumpton, chief executive of UK private banking at Barclays W&IM.
