Barclays Private Bank appoints duo in Singapore

Both Tom Road and Wengmun Loh are relocating from London to Singapore.

Barclays Private Bank has made two senior appointments in its Singapore office.

Tom Road (pictured) has been appointed deputy head of Barclays Private Bank in Singapore, reporting into Evonne Tan, head of Barclays Private Bank for Singapore.

Road has worked for Barclays Private Bank in London for the past 13 years. Prior to joining Barclays, Road was a senior lawyer at Linklaters, specialising in M&A for real estate clients.

Meanwhile, Wengmun Loh has been appointed head of dealing and derivatives for Barclays Private Bank in Singapore.

Wengmun has been with Barclays since 2008 and was most recently head of UK direct access for Barclays Private Bank in London.

In his new role, he will report to Ken Sze, head of investments Asia, and to Aurelien Callegari, global co-head of capital markets and head of structured products.

Wengmun has over 30 years of trading experience across various asset classes having worked on the trading desks of HSBC, Societe Generale and Bloomberg.

“I am delighted to welcome Tom and Wengmun to the team at this exciting chapter of growth for Barclays Private Bank in Singapore. Both Tom and Wengmun have experience in working with some of the largest and most sophisticated family offices and UHNWIs in the UK and Europe, making them instrumental additions to the Barclays Private Bank team in Singapore,” said Tan.

“As the needs of family office clients in Singapore change and evolve, Barclays Private Bank Singapore continues to see significant growth. Singapore serves as a strategically important location for Barclays in Asia, where we have a robust client base and a unique proposition.

“These new appointments will strengthen our presence here and allow us to further meet the investment and banking needs of family offices and UHNW clients in the region,” said Jean-Christophe Gerard, CEO of Barclays Private Bank and wealth management.
