Welcome to the latest edition of PSD's Banking and Financial Services InFocus, in which, I, Gail Danvers, PSD Director, talk to four of the sector's leaders about the challenges they face in 2016.

Graham Davin, CEO at United Trust Bank Limited and Alan Mathewson, Managing Director of Wealth Management & Private Banking at Santander both offer some fascinating insights into their leadership styles and what the future looks like for their business.
