Barclays announces the appointment of Taylor Wright as a Managing
Director and Co-Head of US Equity Capital Markets (ECM). Mr. Wright will
be based in New York, and will report to Jean-Francois Astier, Global
Head of Capital Markets at Barclays.
Mr. Wright has over 30 years of banking and ECM experience, and joins
Barclays from Morgan Stanley where he was most recently Head of
Financial Institutions and Services ECM. During his more than 24 years
at Morgan Stanley, Mr. Wright originated and led more than $250 billion
of equity and equity-linked offerings across multiple industries and
geographies. Mr. Wright has played key roles in the IPOs of issuers
including AXA Equitable Holdings, Bandwidth, BankUnited, Citizens
Financial, Endava, First Republic, Hamilton Lane, Korea Telecom, Moelis
& Company, Tradeweb, UMC, Voya and Yext, led financing and restructuring
transactions for issuers including AIG, Allied Irish Bank, GE, MetLife,
State Street Bank and US Bancorp, and was an advisor to the US
Department of Treasury during the financial crisis.
Mr. Wright will Co-Head the US ECM business with Kristin DeClark, who
joined Barclays from Deutsche Bank in March as Co-Head of US ECM and
Global Head of Technology ECM. Ms. DeClark will start at Barclays in
June 2019, and will be based in Menlo Park, California.
“Taylor is another outstanding addition to our US ECM leadership team,
following our recent appointment of Kristin DeClark. His deep roster of
key relationships and many years of experience will deliver enormous
benefits as we position ourselves as the partner of choice for our
growing client base,” said Jean-Francois Astier, Global Head of Capital
Markets. “Taylor’s addition to the team will further enhance our
abilities to provide best in class strategic advice and execution, and
will accelerate the already strong momentum in our ECM business.”

number 6 for global fee share in ECM, according to Dealogic. Also

five largest US IPOs (Uber, Avantor, Pinterest, and Tradeweb Markets),
the two largest IPOs in EMEA (Nexi SpA, and Network International
