Raquel Santos Silva started out as an investment banker, but was drawn to wealth management because it allowed her to combine her interest in financial markets with her desire to work with people. Portuguese-born, she has worked at Morgan Stanley in London and Santander in Lisbon, and did an MBA at Columbia before joining Goldman Sachs, where her job combined investment banking and wealth management. Santos Silva graduated to pure wealth management in 2013 when she joined Pictet in London, where she has responsibility for European coverage and international clients. ‘A good wealth manager needs to be solutions-driven, not product driven,’ she says. Her clients want ‘sophisticated, tactical ideas’.
