Top Ten UHNW Wealth Managers
Goldman Sachs might have a more restrictive policy than most when it comes to granting journalists access to its people, but there’s no hiding from the Spear’s Index.
A first-choice private banker to UHNW entrepreneurs, City bigwigs and landed families, Giles Pascoe garners plenty of praise from peers, despite a top-down, heads-down approach to publicity.
A co-chair of Goldman’s EMEA advisory council, he leads a formidable investment unit on Goldman’s private wealth management team based in London and also has responsibility for developing the firm’s institutional client solutions business, working with UK-based charities, foundations and endowments.
Credited by industry experts as ‘brilliant’ for his rare combination of expertise and bedside manner, Pascoe has forged an enviable reputation over the past 12 years managing portfolios for individual and institutional private clients from the firm’s London HQ.
Working for a financial giant that can boast £1.4 trillion global assets under supervision (and a reported $900 billion AuM) certainly puts Pascoe in a strong competitive position. The Cambridge University economics graduate and adviser to the EMEA investment management division women’s network previously spent eight years in pan-European equity sales. He joined Goldman Sachs in 2000 and was named managing director in 2011.
