Allaway’s career hasn’t always been as a private banker. Previously a professional basketball player in Spain, he joined Goldman Sachs in 1998 as a financial analyst. With UBS since 2001, he is now managing director and a founder member of the Swiss bank’s Global Family Office Group, a joint venture between UBS’s investment bank and wealth management divisions. From offices based across Europe, Asia, Australia and North America, the group helps UHNWs with both family and institutional needs. London based Allaway advises international single- and multi-family offices in portfolio and investment decisions. Allaway still likes to spend time on a basketball court — except now he does it with the Golden Co and the West London Basketball Project, two philanthropic organisations that help at-risk young people to improve their social, athletic and academic lives.
