About Private Bank (PB) Chief Operating Office (COO)
The PB COO function has recently been formed within BX (Barclays Execution Services), bringing together the BD&C (Business Delivery & Controls), Operations and Technology teams all under one Transaction Cycle (TC); supporting and enabling the Private Bank globally.
