‘I fulfil a global role,’ says Amanda Foster of Russell Reynolds. ‘I tend to focus on leadership roles within private banks, wealth management and family offices.’ What she values about her job is ‘being involved in the dialogue around where the industry is going and implications for talent.’ She explains that ‘to lead in a high-paced environment, you need to look in front and also take risks’. She notes Brexit hasn’t impacted the level of senior wealth managers in London yet: ‘I don’t anticipate a difference for leadership roles on the whole.’ Foster highlights digital disruption as a developing theme that is affecting the sector. ‘UHNWs and private bank clients will continue to want a personal interface with their private bank, but they also seek a digital interface,’ she suggests.
