Barclays’ Wealth Business Expands Southern UK Footprint

The UK bank continues a build-out of its regional presence.

The UK-based firm has made a number of hires across its Southern UK region in recent months, and recruited a top-level manager last week.

Barclays Wealth Management has appointed Robin Taylor as head of its South Central division. 
Taylor, who has over 25 years of industry experience, oversees more than £700 million of client assets across the South Central region, which includes both Bournemouth and Southampton.

His appointment follows an extensive career in financial services. Having started at Prudential, he subsequently moved to Barclays’ banking division where he held a number of senior roles, with responsibility for corporate and high value clients, before moving to Barclays Wealth Management in 2007.

Among other moves in the south of the UK are those of Jane Stokes, who joined as a wealth manager in the Bournemouth team, having returned home from Australasia. She previously held various senior roles across private banking for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Westpac Private, and also has eight years of experience with HSBC Private Bank in the UK.

Karan Berry, wealth manager, also joins the team after spending nine years in London, followed by seven years in the Channel Islands working as a private banker for Société Générale.

A number of prominent wealth management houses, such as Switzerland-based Julius Baer and UBS, among others, have also increased their UK regional presence.
