Barclays is expanding its client-facing Private Banking team in the Principality of Monaco as Romina Ronco joins as a Senior Private Banker and Philippe Honegger joins as Head of Sales Trading.
Recognised as a rising star in private banking and private asset management by Private Asset Managers (PAM) in their “Top 40 under 40” last year, Romina Ronco moves to the Monaco team from Barclays in London. Ms Ronco has been a Private Banker with Barclays for nearly 10 years, having joined the team in Geneva in 2008. Prior to Barclays she worked for JP Morgan Private Bank in Switzerland covering OTC derivatives trading with a focus on Ultra High Net Worth clients in Asia and Europe.
She holds a CFA Investment Management Certificate and a CFA Investment Advanced Diploma.
With over 25 years of experience in financial services, Philippe Honegger joins Barclays from Julius Baer where he was also Head of Sales Trading. Before this, he worked for HSBC Private Bank as Senior Fixed Income Trader, responsible for trading and investments and supporting all clients having direct access to the Trading Desk in addition to managing the Fixed Income fund. Mr Honegger holds a diploma in Business and Finance from Lausanne, Switzerland.
Francesco Grosoli, Head of Barclays’ Private Bank for the Europe Middle East Africa (EMEA) region, said: “The expertise and experience that Romina and Philippe bring to the team will further strengthen our ability to offer our clients world class service and advice, bespoke innovative financial solutions, and access to Barclays’ global capabilities.
“These appointments follow Barclays’ recent announcement about our growth strategy for the Private Bank and are key to our plans to continue to build on our successful track record supporting clients in Monaco.”
