Adrian DochertyManaging Director, Head of Bank Advisory at BNP Paribas
Adrian Docherty leads the Bank Advisory team, which provides key relationship bank
clients with technical sector expertise and help on strategic financial issues relating to
balance sheet management and efficiency.
In practice, this means advising on capital raising alternatives, risk management and
transfer frameworks, regulatory developments (especially Basel III and IV), accounting
changes (especially IFRS 9), funding/liquidity strategies, credit portfolio management,
solvency creation/optimisation structures and innovative ways of financing growth. In
recent years, the issue of “disruption and obsolescence” (ie. new banking business
models) has increasingly featured; so now too do strategies around Brexit.
Adrian has 27 years’ experience in advising financial institutions, initially as a strategy
consultant with Booz Allen Hamilton. After nine years at Booz Allen, Adrian was hired by
one of his clients, Barclays, to help run the rapidly growing investment banking business
line. Adrian spent three years as COO of Investment Banking, before moving to run the
balance sheet advisory team in Barclays Capital’s Financial Institutions Group.
Adrian has a Master’s from Cambridge University. His book "Better Banking:
Understanding and Addressing the Failures in Risk Management, Governance and
Regulation" was published by Wiley in 2014
