Top Ten HNW Wealth Manager
‘The biggest brain in the industry,’ says one insider of Quentin Marshall, and in 2018 the Spear’s judging panel agreed, naming Marshall our UK Private Banker of the Year. Marshall has had a stellar career at big-name banks: he stepped up to head Weatherbys Private Bank in July 2017, having joined in June 2015 as deputy head. He had previously been at Coutts, where he had been head of advisory within the investments team and deputy chairman of the investment strategy committee. Prior to Coutts, Marshall worked for UBS for 16 years, during which he spent four years advising the Republic of Indonesia during the Asian financial crisis. Roger Weatherby, chief executive of Weatherbys, is another fan of Marshall, noting that he has ‘a rare combination of deep private banking expertise and a thorough understanding of what Weatherbys’ clients want and deserve, namely exceptional personal service’. Marshall tells us that ‘old-fashioned values such as integrity, courtesy and respect are my watchwords’. He adds: ‘I believe in treating clients as individuals and part of the extended family,’ and he fosters a culture that encourages staff to be individual. Certainly these are traits clients seem to like. Marshall has acted for some of the largest FTSE 100 companies – both in raising capital and in the M&A space – and has advised numerous family-owned companies.
