Before joining Coutts, Peter held the role of Chief Executive Officer of J.P. Morgan Private Wealth Management in Asia Pacific. Peter also spent nine years with Standard Chartered, establishing their Global Private Bank in 2006.
In his role as Chief Executive, Peter has been instrumental in leading Coutts and Adam & Company through a significantly successful change programme. This has included reaching our 2020 five year targets in just three years by improving not only the way clients and staff think about the bank, but also a tripling of the bank’s Return on Equity to over 15% and profits to over £300m. Coutts is the iconic Private Bank in the UK but seeks to be more than a bank.
