Another ex-Barclays wealth manager joins wealth boutique

Another former Barclays wealth investment manager has resurfaced at a wealth boutique.

Francis Esem Wood has joined London-based wealth firm Falcon Private Wealth as senior adviser for West Africa.

At Barclays Wood served as managing director and West Africa regional team leader.

He served in a range of roles serving emerging markets, including spells at Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers and Credit Suisse.

Falcon chief executive officer Nick McCall said: 'The appointment of Francis Esem Wood reflects our strong commitment to the West African region and we are delighted to further strengthen our emerging markets expertise.'

The appointment comes after European Wealth hired two former Barclays employees earlier this week to establish a Manchester operation.
