HSBC Private Banking goes on hire spree for UK push

HSBC Private Banking has opened the year with a string of hires to boost its UK presence. 

The recruits include Sam Ward, who joins from Royal Bank of Canada Wealth Management as a senior relationship manager and brings 27 years' experience with him.

The bank also hired Dean Stewart as a relationship manager for the Midlands region. He joins from Coutts where he gained nearly 20 years’ experience in private banking.

Meanwhile Mike Middleton has been appointed as a strategic financial planner for the North and Scotland. He previously held client-facing roles at Barclays Private Banking and Lloyds TSB Private Bank.

Chris Allen (pictured), regional head of global private banking for the UK, Channel Islands, France and Germany, said: ‘As we continue to invest in growing our private banking presence across the UK, I am pleased we are able to recruit both from the market and from within HSBC.’

The bank has also made a number of internal appointments, including Dominic Smith as a relationship manager in Manchester and Kelly Lasarow as relationship manager for the South region. Both join from HSBC Premier. 

Elsewhere Carli Watson has been promoted to relationship manager in the specialist charities team, moving from a non-client facing role within the UK private banking team.
