Barclays Wealth has seen further departures with the news that Daniel Way and Jeremy Hill have defected to Societe Generale Private Banking Hambros, the UK wealth management arm of Societe Generale Private Banking.
Way and Hill will join the group's Newbury office as senior private bankers, having been jointly responsible for setting up the Reading office of Barclays Wealth.
Yesterday, it was announced that Barclays Wealth Europe CIO Kevin Gardiner (pictured) had left the group for Rothschild, while two weeks ago it was announced that Barclays Wealth chief executive Peter Horrell will depart at the end of the year,15 months after assuming the role.
PwC's Douglas Barton has also joined SGPB Hambros’ Edinburgh office.
'These appointments are a reflection of the bank’s on-going commitment to its regional development strategy as it continues to provide tailored private banking services to clients,' said a SGPB Hambros spokesperson.
'We are delighted to welcome our new private bankers, who bring such a broad range of experience with them and we believe this will prove invaluable in further establishing our expertise and services in Newbury and Edinburgh,' Christophe Billard, group commercial director at SGPB Hambros added.
