Veteran Wall Street Trader James Barclay Returns to His Roots to Assist UK Retail Investors

James Barclay, a seasoned veteran of 19 years on Wall Street, is bringing his wealth of knowledge and expertise to the UK through Barclay Capital Consult. His new firm aims to provide top-tier service and professional insights to retail investors, helping them navigate their financial journeys and achieve their investment goals.

James obtained his PhD in economics from King’s College, Cambridge, and embarked on his career with an internship at the esteemed family firm, Barclays Capital. Progressing swiftly through the ranks, he held various roles before ultimately assuming the position of head of private wealth management.

In 2007, James relocated to New York City to work for Goldman Sachs on Wall Street, serving as the VP of international development & research. During his tenure at Goldman Sachs, James closely collaborated with Lloyd Blankfein, the former CEO, and made substantial contributions to the firm’s success.

Now, James has returned to his roots and established Barclay Capital Consult with a primary objective of assisting retail investors across the UK. While he continues to manage multi-billion-dollar trading accounts for some of his previous clients, James takes pleasure in working with retail investors, believing they deserve the best information to generate returns, just like his ultra-high-net-worth clients.

Equipped with his extensive knowledge, experience, and influential connections within major financial powerhouses in both New York and “The City,” James is well-prepared to assist clients from diverse backgrounds.

Thomas Reid, Senior Advisor at Barclay Capital Consult, expresses his enthusiasm, stating, “We are delighted to collaborate with James. With his vast experience and expertise, he is undoubtedly the finest leader I have ever had the pleasure of working with, as well as a Wall Street legend! These sentiments are shared by all of us here at Barclay Capital Consult. James now derives fulfillment from aiding investors who wouldn’t typically have access to his level of investment ideas and opportunities. James aims to give something back, which speaks volumes about his origins and achievements.”

James Barclay’s story is uncommon. Most prominent figures on Wall Street and in New York City decline retail client accounts with less than $5,000,000. James offers a distinctive proposition: Wall Street service and information without the need for a fortune to invest.
