Barclays Wealth has made another pair of hires as it expands its alternative investments business.
The firm named Marco Severi a vice president of its alternative investment distribution team, while Ishtaj Rahman has been appointed a hedge fund specialist on its alternative origination team. Both men are based in London.
Severi joins from Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management. Rahman, formerly of JPMorgan Chase, moves over from Barclays Wealth’s Dubai office.
