Barbara Byrne named second most powerful woman in finance by American Banker magazine

American Banker magazine has named Barbara Byrne, Vice Chairman, Banking, among the “25 Most Powerful Women in Finance”. This is the seventh year in a row that Barbara has been included in this prestigious group. She was ranked the second most powerful women in Finance this year, the sixth time she has been in the top five.

Over the years, American Banker has highlighted Barbara’s industry expertise, strong leadership, the fact that she raised a family throughout her banking career, and her consistent support of female talent within Barclays and across the industry.

This is another outstanding achievement for Barbara. She continues to excel as one of the industry’s leading investment bankers and has made great strides advocating for gender diversity within the Industry. Her contributions to the firm are invaluable as she continues to inspire Barclays’ talented team.

Barbara’s work producing the movie Equity, released this year, is yet another distinctive way in which she has helped to promote gender diversity. Equity was directed, written, produced and financed through collaboration between women in entertainment and business leaders in finance – the real-life women of Wall Street – who chose to invest in this film because they wanted to see their story told.

Barbara also spearheaded Barclays’ launch of the Women In Leadership Index (WIL) and linked investment products, which aim to provide investors with exposure to US-based companies with gender-diverse executive leadership. When the index was launched on the NYSE, Barbara noted that enabling investors to allocate capital to companies with more gender-diverse leadership will hopefully provide a market-based approach to help catalyse change.

I try to choose things that have a bigger impact — kind of a puffer fish effect
