Lombard Odier has appointed Duncan MacIntyre (pictured) as chief executive officer of its private client business in the UK.
MacIntyre joins from Coutts & Co and will take up his new responsabilities as from 4 January 2016. He will report to Henry Fischel-Bock, Lombard Odier Group managing director responsible for the Domestic European Private Client business and CEO of Lombard Odier (Europe).
MacIntyre succeeds to Dominic Tremlett, who has led Lombard Odier’s private client business in the UK for the last three years. Tremlett will relocate to Switzerland where he will still focus on the further development of Lombard Odier’s private client franchise.
Before joining Lombard Odier, MacIntyre founded and was global head of Coutts Private Office. Since 2010 he has been a member of the Coutts executive committee.
Prior to Coutts, he worked as a senior private banker at JPMorgan, which he joined from Robert Fleming & Co. in 2000.
MacIntyre started his career at HSBC James Capel in the private client investment management business.
Lombard Odier managed $120bn (€108.8bn) on behalf of private clients at the end of June 2015.
“The UK is an important location for private client financial services, both because of the depth of the UK market and for international clients looking for the regulatory rigour, political stability and professionalism found there,” said Fischel-Bock.
He added : “We have been in the UK for more than forty years and London, more than ever, remains a strategic priority for the Lombard Odier Group. Duncan’s appointment to lead our private client business here is a further commitment to our UK presence and part of our plans to expand our services and offer.”
