Barclays Wealth opens advisory business in Monaco
Barclays Wealth has launched its Wealth Advisory service for clients in Monaco. Simon Morris has been appointed to lead the service.
This important step for Barclays Wealth Advisory means that its Wealth Advisors can meet clients at the Barclays office in Monaco and will support the increased focus on high – and ultra high net worth clients by Barclays Bank in Monaco.
Simon Morris has been with Barclays Wealth Advisory for seven years and will be working alongside the existing team of private bankers based in Monaco, drawing on the strength of the Barclays Group to provide top class solutions for clients, often working in partnership with a client’s own legal and tax advisors.
