Seasoned City Trader James Barclay Returns to His Roots to Assist UK Retail Investors

Last Updated on: 22nd November 2023, 10:17 am

James Barclay, a veteran of 19 years in the City, is bringing his knowledge and expertise back to the UK with Barclay Capital Consult. Through his new firm, he aims to provide retail investors with top-tier service and professional insight to guide them on their financial journey and help them achieve their investment goals.

James completed his PhD in economics at King’s College, Cambridge, and began his career with an internship at the prestigious family firm Barclays Capital. He swiftly climbed the ranks, assuming various roles before eventually becoming the head of private wealth management.

In 2007, James relocated to New York City to work for Goldman Sachs on Wall Street as the Vice President of International Development & Research. During his tenure at Goldman Sachs, James closely collaborated with Lloyd Blankfein, the former CEO, and made significant contributions to the firm’s success.

Now, James has returned to his roots and established Barclay Capital Consult, with the primary objective of assisting retail investors across the UK. While James still manages multibillion-dollar trading accounts for some of his former clients, he also takes pleasure in working with retail investors, believing they deserve the best information to maximise their returns, just as much as his ultra-high-net-worth clients.

Equipped with his extensive knowledge, experience, and influential connections in major financial institutions in both New York and “The City,” James is well-prepared to assist clients from all walks of life.

Thomas Reid, Senior Advisor at Barclay Capital Consult, expresses his enthusiasm about working alongside James, stating, “We are delighted to have James on board. With his vast experience and expertise, he is undoubtedly the best leader I have ever had the pleasure of working with, as well as a legend on Wall Street! These sentiments are shared by all of us here at Barclay Capital Consult. James now finds fulfillment in helping investors who would not typically have access to his level of investment ideas and opportunities. James wants to give something back, which is a testament to both his roots and his journey.”

James Barclay’s story is not a common one. Most prominent names on “The City” and in New York City typically do not cater to retail clients with less than £5,000,000. James provides a unique offering: Wall Street service and Wall Street information, without the need for clients to possess a substantial fortune to invest.
