Julius Baer adds three to team


Julius Baer International in London and Dublin has strengthened its UK team with the appointment of Rupert Watkins as relationship manager. 

He will focus on UK resident clients. 
Watkins joins from Barclays, where he worked for five years, most recently as part of the financial institutions team specialising in relationships with hedge fund managers, private equity partners and senior investment bankers. Prior to this, he worked as a relationship manager for Credit Suisse. 
The Dublin-based team has been strengthened with the appointment of David Forrest as relationship manager. Forrest will focus on Irish resident clients. He spent seven years in Davy’s private client division where he was responsible for the provision of financial and investment advice to individuals, corporations and charities in his roles as both investment analyst and portfolio manager.
Sandhya Munsami has been appointed as head of supervision. Munsami has an extensive track record following eight years at Standard Chartered Private Bank, with her most recent role being head of business controls and supervision in London. Prior to this she worked at JP Morgan, F&C Investments, Barclays Private Bank and Nedbank, South Africa in a number of front office roles.
Watkins, Forrest and Munsami will report to Rob Woodthorpe Browne, head of relationship management UK and Ireland.
David Durlacher, CEO of Julius Baer UK and Ireland, says: “We are delighted to welcome such highly experienced professionals who will help us focus on Julius Baer’s growth in the UK and Ireland. The domestic opportunity remains key to our long-term strategy in both offices, and both Rupert and David bring a deep understanding of HNW and UHNW families in their respective markets. Sandhya further strengthens our supervision framework and front office leadership team in London. All three appointments underline our commitment to our UK and Irish clients.”
