Barclays today announces new additions to its Investment Bank teams responsible for environmental, social and governance-related finance work with clients.
Justin Peagram, a Managing Director in Banking Coverage, joins the Sustainable and Impact Banking (SIB) team, and will focus on sustainable energy and other emerging growth areas. He joins SIB from the Natural Resources Banking team, where he spent the past 13 years covering clients in the upstream, midstream and infrastructure sectors. In this new role, Justin Peagram will lead Barclays’ efforts in identifying and covering emerging growth companies whose businesses and platforms span the spectrum of clean energy, from new technologies and energy sources, to energy transition and related infrastructure requirements.
Mr Peagram will work alongside Jed Lynch, Head of Americas SIB, May Jaramillo, Head of European SIB, and the rest of the SIB team. Created last fall, Barclays’ SIB team focuses on working with emerging and growth companies that are solving environmental or social challenges, and on advising clients on sustainable growth strategy and finance.
Amit Chandra, a Managing Director in Equity Capital Markets (ECM), is leading Barclays’ Equity Capital Markets Sustainable and Impact Banking effort in the Americas. His team is responsible for partnering with colleagues across the broader ECM and industry coverage teams to identify and originate equity solutions for companies whose businesses are focused on solving environmental issues. Amit Chandra also continues in his role as Americas Head of the Natural Resources vertical within ECM, and will continue to report to Kristin DeClark and Taylor Wright, Co-Heads of Americas ECM.
Greg Cass and Atul Jhavar, Directors in Debt Capital Markets (DCM), join the team led by Susan Barron, Global Head of Green & Sustainable Capital Markets, to run Barclays’ green, social and sustainability debt financing business for investment grade clients in the Americas and Asia-Pacific, respectively. In their roles, Greg Cass and Atul Jhavar will continue to work with partners in DCM and Fixed Income Syndicate in their respective regions to originate, structure and execute ESG debt products.
Alex Dyroff and Eldar Pius will serve as ESG ambassadors within Barclays’ Leveraged Finance business in the Americas and in Europe and the Middle East, respectively.
