Barclays Wealth Hires Ultra High Net Worth Managing Director

Barclays Wealth has announced a further senior appointment to its rapidly expanding Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) team.

Christian Kwek joins as Managing Director, based in London and reporting to Stefanie Drews, Head of UHNW and Family Offices, UK & EMEA.  This follows the announcement last month that Theophanis Theophanous will be joining the team as a Managing Director and UHNW banker.

Kwek previously spent eight years at BNP Paribas, most recently as Head of the Equity Derivatives Group in London.

Commenting on the appointment, Stefanie Drews said: 'This is an exciting time for the UHNW team.  We are bringing on board new clients, expanding existing mandates and seeing a first rate pipeline of new business, attracted not only by our ability to deliver to clients the whole of Barclays, but also by the high calibre of bankers that we have working with us.  Christian is representative of the quality and experience that we want to take to market and work with our UHNW clients'.
