Societe Generale Private Banking adds Middle East department


Societe Generale Private Banking has opened a Middle East department in Geneva, recruiting five private bankers dedicated exclusively to wealthy Middle Eastern clients. 

The department comprises Christopher Urwick, who has been appointed manager, and private bankers Claude Tendon, Amr Barakat, Sandra Bavaud and Nathalie Wyss.

The team reports to Eric Lorentz, director for Middle Eastern clients, who is based in the United Arab Emirates and has responsibility for the international coordination of the sales offering for this clientele.

Coverage of the Middle Eastern clientele is backed by teams of private bankers in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, London, Luxembourg, Monaco and now Geneva.

Urwick has almost 20 years’ experience in private banking. From 1993, he was in charge of the Middle East department at Lloyds Bank; having previously held various positions at the bank in London, Paris, Milan, Cairo and Amsterdam. In 2010, he joined Societe Generale Private Banking, together with his team, to develop the wealth management activities for its Middle Eastern clientele.
