Royal Bank of Canada has hired Credit Suisse private banking director Fiona Lucas as managing director of relationship management in the company’s London office.
In the newly created role, Lucas will report to the company’s international head of sales and relationship management Ross Jennings.
Jenning said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Fiona to our sales and relationship management team.
‘Her knowledge and experience will further enhance our client service capabilities, and strengthen our position as a leading wealth manager in the UK and Channel Islands.
‘Our client teams are built from diverse pools of talented individuals enabling us to understand, and deliver on, the complex needs of our clients.
‘Having Fiona join the team strengthens our capabilities to serve clients and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to attract high quality individuals to RBC who will help support our growth efforts both now and in the future.’
