The Scottish Referendum in 2014 brought together Peter Gordon, The head of the Government Relations team for the Corporate and Investment Bank, and Fabrice Montagne, the Chief UK Economist for Barclays Investment Bank. They had no idea it would be the first of many political events that would see them collaborating more and more.
Since that referendum, Peter and Fabrice have travelled the world together, presenting Barclays’ outlook on geopolitical events to clients, governments and even the United Nations. Over that time, they built a great friendship and professional relationship, turning to each other regularly for advice, insight and a fresh angle on what’s happening in the world. This is their story.
