Louise Hartley

Spear’s Review

Louise Hartley, managing director and team leader at Citi Private Bank, is the most senior female banker in the UK team, with almost two decades’ experience in the industry. Hartley joined Citi in 2007; she currently leads a team of private bankers while managing a book of global UHNW clients with whom she’s developed long-term relationships.

Hartley is passionate about improving diversity in banking and finance, and co-founded the EMEA women’s network within the private bank to help nurture this diverse talent as well as increase engagement with female prospects and clients. In 2020 she organised a global ‘Women in Leadership’ conference featuring female leaders and entrepreneurs – notable speakers included Citi CEO Jane Fraser and former US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice.

According to Citi, her clients describe her as ‘responsive, thoughtful and knowledgeable’, and she prides herself on always ‘taking the long view’, working closely with families to understand their multi-generational needs.
