Giles Pascoe

Spear's Review

‘We aim to be absolutely pivotal to a small number of very material private clients,’ says Giles Pascoe, the leader of one of Goldman Sachs’ largest private wealth teams in London, which he describes as a ‘boutique’ within the GS wealth management business.

He likens his role to that of a personal CIO. ‘We do institutional-quality investment planning and implementation. That’s 90 per cent of the job for clients,’ he says.

The bank’s brokerage offering helps clients to manage other risks, such as currency. ‘All very wealthy people should be mindful of currency,’ Pascoe says, adding that the bank’s extensive private investments platform is an ‘increasingly important part of our client offering’.
