He will report locally to Ken Sze, head of investments Asia, and to Aurelien Callegari, global co-head of capital markets and head of structured products.

He has held positions on the trading desks of HSBC, Société Générale, and Bloomberg LP.

In his previous role, Loh oversaw the dealing and sales trading desks in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Mumbai for Barclays wealth, Asia.

Evonne Tan, head of Barclays Private Bank, Singapore, commented: “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.”

Jean-Christophe Gerard, CEO, Barclays Private Bank and Wealth Management, added: “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.
