Barclays Wealth Management has appointed Robin Taylor as head of its south central division as part of its continuing regional expansion.
He takes responsibility for over £700 million of client assets across the south central UK, which includes Bournemouth and Southampton.
Taylor joined Barclays’ banking division in 2001, before transitioning to wealth management in 2007. He started his career at Prudential.
Earlier this year, the firm expanded its south central team with the hire of Jane Stokes and Karan Berry, who both joined as wealth managers within the Bournemouth team.
Stokes had previously held senior roles across private banking for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Westpac Private, and with HSBC Private Bank in the UK.
Berry joined the team after spending seven years in the Channel Islands working as a private banker for Société Générale.
Andrew Houston (pictured), head of Barclays Wealth Management, said: 'I am delighted to welcome Jane and Karan to the team, headed up by Robin who boasts extensive experience in supporting our growing client base across the south central region.'
