Giles Crowe’s clients – generally highly successful entrepreneurs and their families – tend to make use of the full breadth of the Citi platform. As one of the leading lights at the Spear’s-awardwinning international private bank explains himself, that ranges from ‘core discretionary portfolios to opportunistic trading strategies with our capital markets team in an advisory capacity’.

Citi has one of the most comprehensive private bank offerings in the industry, even covering specialised advice on art collections and sports teams. This size and structure enables the bank to offer services typically available to institutional investors, drawing upon its pool of private bankers in different corners of the world. ‘The depth and breadth of talent across the business is fantastic, giving me the best opportunity possible to give sound advice,’ says Crowe.

His success rests on his ability to take the long view, and he is unfazed either by Brexit or by the prospect of a Corbyn government. ‘There still remain exciting longterm investment opportunities within a growing global economy, despite fears of impending bear markets across asset classes and continued geopolitical unease,’ says Crowe, who also notes a theme of disruptive technologies at the bank. He adds that the bull market looks set to continue for now: ‘Fundamentals still support positive returns, albeit far more muted.’
