Hotbed expands

Investment network Hotbed has appointed Georgina Barber as head of client services.

As part of her new role, Barber will be responsible for further developing Hotbed’s client services team and will service both existing and new members of Hotbed.

Prior to Hotbed, she was previously a strategy specialist within BT Global Services’ Global Banking business where she was responsible for client management.

Barber’s appointment is in response to Hotbed’s recent growth in private investor membership. In the past six months, Hotbed has increased its membership by 10%, now totalling 800 high net worth individuals.

Launched in 2002 by former 3i investment director Gary Robins, Hotbed enables individuals to invest in private equity and commercial property.
