Unreasonable Mentors

Simon Ollerenshaw

Head of UK Multinational Coverage, Corporate Banking, Barclays

Simon is an Unreasonable Mentor. Simon has participated in 3 programs, including Unreasonable Impact UK & Europe 2022, and has advised over 43 Unreasonable companies.
27 years’ experience in corporate finance and capital raising (equity, debt and derivatives) from working and living in the UK, Europe, Asia, US and emerging markets. Currently run a team which coordinates all of Barclays’ activities with our largest UK clients. 13 years at Barclays, with a strong network across all of our business lines.
Capital raising includes structuring advice, price-setting, helping clients to build and articulate an investment case, and co-ordinating the marketing process with investors. Worked with a very diverse range of clients from start-ups to multinationals, to governments and supranational entities.
My team works across all of a company's typical banking needs, from capital raising to cash management, payments, FX, risk management, and credit cards.
This is all team sport: to deliver proper advice and service to clients, we must be closely aligned to a very wide range of colleagues internally.
