James Whittaker

Spear’s Review

Recruited in 2020 as Head of UK Coverage at Deutsche Bank, James Whittaker has recently enjoyed a further advancement in his impressive career through his appointment as Chief Executive Officer of the bank’s UK wealth management business. 

Known as ‘the big beast of UHNW coverage banking in the UK,’ Whittaker’s professional experience speaks for itself. Having spent 14 years at UBS, he was instrumental in growing the bank’s UK UHNW business. 

Prior to his tenure at UBS, Whittaker began his career at Coutts as a private banker after graduating from the University of Bath in 2004. After decades in the field, he is now one of the region's most respected financial advisers.
