Barclays Wealth has tapped a former JP Morgan advisor, Gary Krieger, to serve as a director and investment representative in its Palm Beach, Fla., office.
Krieger worked at JP Morgan for almost 12 years in Palm Beach and San Francisco.
“It is an exciting time to be joining Barclays Wealth as it expands in the Americas,” he said in a statement. “I look forward to using the broad and deep capabilities of the Barclays Wealth platform to help my clients achieve their goals.”
The growing firm now has about 250 advisors and more than $240 billion in assets under management. It includes 14 offices across the United States and Latin America that focus on high net worth individuals and families.
“Barclays Wealth is committed to ensuring our clients benefit from the private wealth management expertise of all of our investment representatives, and we welcome Mr. Krieger to the Palm Beach team,” said Jack Petersen, head of wealth management for the Americas.
Barclays acquired Lehman Brothers’ private investment management business in September 2008 and has been using the group as a foundation for building this business in United States and Latin America.
