Barclays Spain gets new Investment Banking head

Gonzalo Ardura has been named to oversee Barclays Corporate and Investment Firm’s Investment Banking division in Spain, where the bank has been active for nearly 47 years. Ardura’s new duty will be to focus on expanding the bank’s operations in the region.

“Growing revenues across Europe is a strategic priority for the Investment Banking Division, and our franchise in Spain has been one of the key drivers of recent success for the European platform,” said Pier Colizzi, Barclays head of Investment Banking Continental Europe and co-head of M&A.

“The team has worked hard to deepen and broaden client relationships, resulting in Barclays playing a leading role in several landmark transactions and increasing market share across all products, consolidating its position as a top 5 player in Spain.”

Ardura has worked with Barclays Investment Banking in Spain since 2009, and has 18 years of expertise in investment banking. He was promoted to the position of managing director in 2018.
