Everard Barclay Simmons was appointed Managing Partner of Attride-Stirling & Woloniecki (ASW) in January 2006. Prior to re-joining ASW, Barclay was an investment banker with Goldman Sachs & Company in New York. Barclay was part of the litigation team that founded ASW in 1999.
Outside of ASW, Barclay’s focus is on the financial services industry, and he serves as a director on several boards in this space. He is a Director at Argus Group Holdings Limited where he sits on the investment committee, a Director at the Bermuda Monetary Authority where he is chairman of the investment committee, a Director at The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Ltd. where he sits on the risk policy committee, and a member of the five person Public Funds Investment Committee responsible for the investment of $2.0 Billion dollars on the behalf of the people of Bermuda.
Barclay received an M.B.A. from the Harvard Business School, and an LLB (Hons) from the University of Kent at Canterbury. Having completed the Bar Vocational Course at the Inns of Court School of Law, he was called to the Bar of England & Wales in 1997 and the Bermuda Bar in 1998. In 1999 he completed the Territorial Army Commissioning Course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and was previously a commissioned officer in the Bermuda Regiment.
In 2010 The International Bank Note Society chose Bermuda’s $2 note, issued as part of an entirely new series, as Bank Note of the Year. Barclay’s signature appears as one of two signatures on that note.
