Babor Hussain

Spear's Review

Babor Hussain co-founded Barclays UK’s strategic partners team, which focuses on private equity, venture capitalists and founders of high growth companies. The bank says he is ‘an exceptional leader’ who is responsible for bringing in considerable revenue to its UK private banking operations. The team he oversees has an AuM which exceeded the £2 billion mark since its inception. 

Hussain is experienced across the fields of structuring, investment management and private banking, while also a specialist in equity markets and cross-border tax planning. He began his career at NatWest’s institutional arm before joining Barclays as a private banker and co-head of its Financial Institutional Group since 2016. 

Adviser Profile

Babor is the founder of the Strategic Partners team in Barclays UK Private Bank, formed to focus on the Private Equity ecosystem covering Private Equity, Venture Capitalists and High Growth Company Founders. 

Babor is one of the Private Bank's largest revenue producers and manages the personal affairs of some of the bank's most strategic corporate clients on a personal basis in collaboration with his colleagues across the Corporate and Investment Bank.

Babor has a wealth of experience across global markets in origination and structuring, investment and private banking, specialising in equity capital markets and cross-border tax planning. 

He is seen as a 'Thought Partner' and trusted adviser to his clients, and operates as a cross-asset specialist, with significant expertise in consulting on personal/corporate balance sheets, allocating and deploying capital and long term risk management. 

Babor has assisted across a number of millstone transactions for his clients utilising the bank's European Investment Banking capabilities. Some of the notable achievements are noted below:

  • helped and assisted in structuring a £250 million fund financing facility for a global, preeminent VC house;  
  • assisted a longstanding serial Fintech entrepreneur to raise €330 million debt in collaboration with CIB colleagues to support the growth ambitions of the Company Founder.

Babor has worked with a number of C-Suite executives backed by PE firms to wind down client single stock positions via block trades

All the above transactions demonstrate Babor's vast sphere of influence and technical competences to deliver the whole firm for his clients, which has been built over the past 16 years whilst at Barclays.
