Barclays appointed Na Wei global head of leveraged finance, reporting to Travis Barnes and Tom Johnson, global co-heads of capital markets at Barclays.

Under Wei’s leadership of Barclays’ leveraged finance business in the EMEA region, the firm achieved a top three ranking in 2023, according to Dealogic data, up from a No. 7 ranking in 2022. Wei has also been instrumental in materially increasing Barclays’ market share with the firm’s top 20 financial sponsors clients.

“As the financing market continues to evolve and become more complex, we are confident that under Na’s leadership we will be best positioned for future success,” Barnes said. “Na has a proven track record of growing business and market share, and of standout service for our clients.”

“Through her leadership of the EMEA franchise, Na installed a disciplined focus on delivering strategic capital to our most important clients,” Johnson said. “We firmly believe that she can replicate this mindset across our global business, putting us in the strongest possible position to further increase our market share in the U.S. and globally.”
