Barclays has appointed Daniel Hanna as Global Head of Sustainable Finance for corporate and investment banking.
“The center of excellence will bring together the power of our ‘One Barclays’ approach to deliver a fuller suite of products, solutions, and expertise to clients as they navigate the transition to a low-carbon economy,” said Paul Compton, Global Head of Corporate and Investment Bank and President, Barclays Bank Plc. “He will partner closely with the Sustainable Capital Markets, Sustainable and Impact Banking, and the Sustainable Product Group teams, as well as with Barclays’ Sustainability and ESG team to ensure connectivity with Barclays’ broader firm-wide efforts.”
“We are focused on the delivery of our climate strategy, including capturing new opportunities to deepen client relationships and create new growth for Barclays’ businesses,” said Sasha Wiggins, Barclays’ Group Head of Public Policy and Corporate Responsibility. “Whilst we are already using our expertise across our Corporate and Investment Bank to help clients manage this period of extraordinary change, Daniel’s appointment gives us a powerful focus to create a real point of difference with clients.”
Hanna joins Barclays from Standard Chartered where he was Global Head of Sustainable Finance.
