Samik started his financial services career immediately following graduation and has never looked back. Initially starting at Citibank in India he moved to the City of London in 1999 to pursue his dream of a career in banking at a global financial centre. He rose swiftly through the ranks to the position of Director at Coutts working at their Fleet Street office. In 2012 he joined Hambros Bank which later became Kleinwort Hambros following a merger. Over the two decades he spent in Private Banking, Samik advised several successful entrepreneurs, executives, professionals and their families on investments and financial planning matters. Samik received a bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of Madras, Loyola College and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments.
A diehard motoring enthusiast, Samik spends much of his spare time following and occasionally participating in various motoring events. He can often be found tinkering under the hood of his classic car. Apart from this his great love of Italy, its culture, food and wine, keeps him and his wife Kacy suitably distracted, although he is yet to get to grips with the language!
