Barclays new managing directors: inside the list

 What does it take to become managing director at Barclays? Based on today's list of 85 newly promoted managing directors at the bank, a few things appear to help. They include being male (Barclays isn't saying but Reuters thinks 85% are men), and being based in either London or New York.

We've added the full list of names and their functions, where available, below. 

This year's list includes some notable recent hires, suggesting it's also possible to make MD at Barclays after joining as a director and getting a guarantee of a promotion in the next round. Kerim Batibay, who joined the London financial sponsors business from Citi in July, falls into this category. Other recent joiners include: Kevin Cheng in equity linked products in New York, who came JPMorgan in 2021, Cedric Veylon head of EMEA flow derivatives in London, who also came from JPMorgan in 2021; and Jeff Zhao, a CMO derivatives trader who joined from Bank of America in 2021. 

It also includes various senior macro traders, which is probably unsurprising given that macro revenues at Barclays were up 93% in Q3.
