Maitland client story by Corporate Banking at Barclays. Image of Maitland CFO.


“Our relationship with Barclays is really a partnership; I believe it’s a relationship which is really built on trust and understanding each other’s businesses.”

Grant Richardson, CFO

  • Maitland started life in 1976 as a legal firm in Luxembourg and has grown to offer a range of administration, advisory and fiduciary services
  • The company believed that it was important as a business to follow its clients, which has seen expansion into 14 locations. The company’s main hub is in Cape Town but given their global business they do not consider themselves to have a headquarters
  • Maitland approached Barclays in 2013 as they sought to rationalise their banking partners into one core global relationship bank
  • Barclays provided a range of cash management and refinancing, with a Global Relationship Director to coordinate their banking relationship globally
  • Maitland is looking to grow and Barclays is working with them on their growth path to project their services into markets where they’re not yet present
  • “Our partnership with Barclays really was a natural progression of our own internal restructure; in our evolution to our ‘one firm’ without divisional silos, we started thinking about a global relationship and that conversation progressed into what Barclays could do for Maitland.” Grant Richardson, CFO
