LBCM is the Group’s non-ring-fenced bank and a separate legal entity. It is a diverse, cross-jurisdictional business offering a range of products to many different client types. This role will focus on LBCM Islands (“Islands”) which provides:

  • Lending, deposits and cash management facilities for large corporate and financial institution clients.
