Ex-Brewin wealth manager Hepburn joins Barclays' Aberdeen push
by Annabelle Williams on Oct 30, 2012 at 10:23
Barclays has boosted its Aberdeen office with the appointment of a private banker from Aberdeen Asset Management.
Elaine Hepburn has joined from the private client team at the fund house and previously worked at Brewin Dolphin during her 11 years in the financial services industry.
She will report in to director of wealth and investment management at Barclays Aberdeen, Mark Flynn.
Barclays has been working to boost headcount across its regional branches, yesterday poaching Coutts' veteran Andrew Crossley for its Essex office.
The Aberdeen branch now has seven staff offering private banking, wealth management and financial advice.
‘Her experience and regional knowledge will assist greatly with our commitment to offering uniquely tailored wealth management solutions to local clients,’ Flynn said.
Barclays' expansion efforts are part of a plan internally codenamed Project Gamma, under which it aims to become one of the top five private banks in the world by 2015, partly through doubling the number of private bankers in-house to around 1,300.
