Jeremy Vaughan

Spear's Review

Jeremy Vaughan is managing director at Hampden & Co, an institution that, at the time, became the UK’s newest private bank – the first for three decades – in 2015. Its short history has been defined by a decision to eschew wealth management or general investment advice to focus firmly on offering personal, professional banking services to its HNW clients and their families.

Vaughan relishes Hampden & Co’s independence. ‘We have a competitive edge,’ he says. ‘We’re able to make decisions and act quickly and, while other banks have been closing their doors, we’ve been receiving numerous referrals. People have been doing a lot of thinking in recent months and there’s a growing demand for a bank that is interested in proper conversations.’

Adviser Profile

Jeremy started his career with NatWest, moving to the private banking division of Hill Samuel in 1988. In 1997, he moved to Adam & Company before helping to establish Hampden & Co. As Managing Director, Banking, he ensures the team delivers an exceptional experience for clients. 

'Part of the attraction of joining the bank was being asked to design the client proposition. I knew it was probably the one time in my life that I would get to do that. Many HNW clients don't fit the tick-box approach of mainstream banks. We don't just look at people's salaries, we seek to understand their finances holistically. I enjoy getting to know my clients well and supporting them over the long term.'
