Recommended UHNW Wealth Managers
‘The most memorable moment of my career was when a large client asked me to become a trustee of their family trust,’ says Theophanis Theophanous, showing ‘the complete trust and faith they have in me as a person’.
Theophanous joined Barclays in 2011 and now heads up a team of six, in addition to running the Greece, Russia and Eastern Europe teams. Peers describe him as ‘a role model to many’ – partly because of the time he devotes to mentoring younger bankers.
His client roster, he says, ‘likes transparent investments and is averse to hedge funds’. He also notes an increase in private equity transactions and direct investments in real estate.
