WMA hires Barclays Wealth Direct head

WMA hires Barclays Wealth Direct head

The Wealth Management Association (WMA) has appointed Rupert Dickinson on its board of directors.

Dickinson was named head of Wealth Direct in September, as part of the management shake-up at Barclays.

At the same time, David Semaya, the bank's director and former UK private banking head retired, following the decision by the wealth and investment division’s new management team, led by Peter Horrell, to instigate a new strategic direction for the business.

Semaya, who was also director at the WMA, stepped down from the trade body at the end of December, while Dickinson was appointed in January.

The WMA is headed by Tim May (pictured).
