Lombard Odier snaps up Coutts top exec for CEO role

Business-Handshake-Meeting-Deal-Low-Angular-700x450.jpgLombard Odier has appointed Duncan MacIntyre as chief executive of the firm’s UK private client business.

MacIntyre will replace Dominic Tremlett, who will return to Geneva after three years in the UK to focus on Lombard Odier’s private client franchise.

MacIntyre was previously global head of Coutts Private Office, which he also founded in 2006.

Before Coutts, he was senior private banker at JP Morgan, joining the firm from Robert Fleming & Co in 2000.

MacIntyre will be replaced by Coutts head of international and private office Camilla Stowell who will retain her current role and take on MacIntyre’s responsibilities.

In his new role, MacIntyre will report to Henry Fischel-Bock, the Swiss bank’s group managing director who is also responsible for the domestic European private client business.

Fischel-Bock says: “The UK is an important location for private client financial services, both because of the depth of the UK market and for international clients looking for the regulatory rigour, political stability and professionalism found there.

“We have been in the UK for more than 40 years and London, more than ever, remains a strategic priority for the Lombard Odier Group. Duncan’s appointment to lead our private client business here is a further commitment to our UK presence and part of our plans to expand our services and offer.”
