United Kingdom

Based in London and present across the UK, Barclays Private Bank is part of a celebrated banking history and tradition. We provide clients with an exclusive and specialist service that is backed by Barclays’ global operations and benefits from centuries of financial experience.

Financial stability and innovation

Founded in 1690, Barclays has a distinguished record of innovation and achievement. From funding the world's first public railway, to introducing the world's first cash machine, and the UK's first credit and debit cards, the bank has always been a pioneer.

Barclays operates in more than 40 countries, and is regularly voted number one in UK investment banking. This combination of global reach and investment experience provides a strong foundation for the Barclays Private Bank, enabling our clients to access specialist knowledge and skills worldwide.

Collaboration and personal focus

Whatever your goals, we can create customised solutions to help grow, protect or pass on your wealth. We harness a global network of financial experts and specialists from both inside and outside the bank. At the centre of this team is your dedicated Private Banker, who will ensure that you have the right people working alongside you and your advisors.

Collaboration and commitment are our strengths. We develop a long-term approach and take the time to learn what matters to you. We work hard to understand your financial personality, individual circumstances and preferences. We then use this knowledge to tailor strategies and products to protect your wealth, maximise its growth potential and secure your legacy.

We bring you the power of Barclays, drawing on the brightest and the best from our corporate and investment banks and the world beyond.

Meeting your needs

From everyday banking to complex financing and investments, we provide a comprehensive service through our four core product areas: banking and credit solutions, wealth advisory, investment services, and strategic solutions.

Our easy to use online and mobile banking platforms provide an added level of service, ensuring you can bank uninterrupted wherever you are, whenever you want.

In addition, when it comes to charitable donations and supporting causes that are important to you, our philanthropy service will help you to access the options and make informed decisions.
