Darren Allaway


Spear's Review

Darren Allaway’s path into wealth management was far from conventional. Previously a professional basketball player in Spain, he joined Goldman Sachs in 1998 as a financial analyst. After a stint at UBS, where he was a managing director and founder member of the Swiss bank’s Global Family Office Group, he returned to Goldman in 2019 to helm Apex, the firm's dedicated family office coverage team.

Given his experience advising international single and multi-family offices in portfolio and investment decisions, it’s natural territory for the seasoned adviser. With dedicated coverage of around 500 families globally, Apex is focused on differentiated investment content with a stated focus on ‘bespoke private transactions and investment opportunities’.
