Barclays Wealth, the global wealth management division of Barclays, has hired Anne Luke as head of client solutions for Asia as part of its continued focus on ultra-high-net-worth clients across the region.
Luke’s remit is to drive the origination, structuring and delivery of bespoke private investment-banking solutions to ultra-high-net-worth clients. Based in Singapore, Luke will report to Srinivas Siripurapu, head of South Asia and Southeast Asia, as well as to Pakorn Boonya-kurkul, head of North Asia.
Luke spent a large part of her 20-year career with UBS, where she was responsible for wealth management solutions for ultra-high-net-worth clients, and before that she served the wealth management, investment banking and asset management divisions in the legal and compliance functions. She was also previously a partner in various law firms, covering banking and finance, as well as corporate advisory.
“Anne has the skill sets and expertise in further enhancing our ability to leverage our expertise across the Barclays group and to deliver bespoke solutions and significant benefits to our client base across Asia,” said Didier von Daeniken, Asia-Pacific chief executive of Barclays Wealth. “With her deep experience in banking and law, I am confident Anne will be able to further extend Barclays Wealth’s ability to provide customised complex solutions to our ultra-high-net-worth client segment, and continue to drive our efforts in positioning Barclays Wealth as the wealth manager of choice for ultra-high-net-worth individuals.”
