Barclays creates new Sustainable and Impact Banking Group

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 novembre 2019

Barclays today announces the launch of a new Sustainable and Impact Banking group, led by Brian Reilly, Global Head of Sustainable and Impact Banking. The newly created group will focus on identifying new, high-growth clients that are solving global environmental and social challenges, and advising existing Banking clients on sustainable growth strategy and finance.
By working in partnership with existing coverage teams at Barclays to both support and lead client relationships, the Sustainable and Impact Banking group will identify and cover new companies, most of them emerging growth companies, focused on sustainability or social impact, and will advise such companies on financing and strategic opportunities. The group will also work with environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) investors, building unique insights into this rapidly growing investor base in order to advise both existing and new clients of Barclays on ESG metrics and positioning.
The new group will build on Barclays’ existing credentials in sustainable banking, having advised on equity offerings and private placements for corporations operating across the ESG space; sustainability-linked credit facilities – including the first ever in the US; and more than $57 billion of green, sustainable or social bonds for clients since January 2018, including the first ever from a UK bank.The Sustainable and Impact Banking group will incorporate the Social Impact Banking initiative, launched in early 2018 under the leadership of Jed Lynch in the Americas and May Jaramillo in EME. The team will also partner closely with Debt Capital Markets, specifically Susan Barron, Global Head of Green and Sustainable DCM, and with the Private Capital Markets team, headed globally by Angus Whelchel. Reflecting the importance of sustainability at Barclays across the entire firm, the Sustainable and Impact Banking team will work with the Sustainability & ESG team to coordinate and contribute to Barclays’ sustainability and climate change strategy, and will leverage the team’s intelligence in global ESG matters.
