Arbuthnot Latham and Co, the private and commercial bank, has appointed Rachel Rowling as a senior commercial banker to the technology banking division, demonstrating the company’s continuous expansion and progression.

Rowling was a relationship manager at HSBC Innovation Banking, formerly known as Silicon Valley Bank, before joining the company.

Her extensive background includes a solid record of providing financial solutions and establishing strategic alliances to early-stage technological start-ups.

Following Ben Sheeran’s appointment in October 2023 as team leader for technology banking, Rowling becomes a member of the group.

By integrating its business divisions with new customer groups and investing in this specialised team, Arbuthnot Latham is able to reinforce its client proposal and maintain the upsurge that its commercial banking sector has gained in terms of experience.

The increased team builds on the foundation established by the specialised commercial banking teams and represents another important milestone in Arbuthnot Latham’s continuous transition.
