Barclays Wealth has been looking after clients on ‘The Rock’ for over 120 years, and thanks to the newly expanded intermediaries team who have a ‘passion to deliver,’ the global organisation continues to serve professional intermediaries and their clients.
‘Give us the problem or circumstance and let us find you the solution’: these are the inspiring words of Carlos Garcia, Head of Intermediaries, who leads the newly-formed team, comprising of relationship managers and account managers, all of whom have a wealth of experience and in-depth knowledge on a host of subjects, from property financing to high value international trading.
In order to serve clients’ needs, the department is assisted by a remote team which supports it with basic day-to-day activities, from service payments to day to day treasury needs.
The wide range of expertise within the group ensures that their chosen client segment is served in the best and most efficient way, providing global reach.
Determined to continue driving the service agenda for constant improvement forward, the team is working with in-house experts to ensure that the systems and processes are reviewed to make sure they meet the needs of their clients in this fast changing environment.
So, apart from their passion, drive and determination, what makes this team of experts stand out from the competition?
Carlos says: ‘Whilst others are focused on their internal issues at a time when banks remain in the spotlight, we are solely focused on the external stakeholder, the client.
‘We continue to be committed to our clients and want to leverage the full Barclays Wealth capability, dovetailing
with the Corporate banking suite of products and expertise, Barclays in Gibraltar is the gateway to the Barclays group.’
‘This is unique, as we find that our competitors can only do one of the two; either corporate banking or investment banking. We can do all of this from within the same team.’
