Anne-Marie Woolley has joined Standard Chartered’s commodity and structured trade finance unit in London under team head Paul Champagne. Woolley spent many years at Barclays Africa in London where she built up a glowing reputation in the field of African commodity finance.

Woolley left Barclays in October when the bank relocated its African business to Johannesburg (see GTR, Nov/Dec 2003, p4). Peter Barker was recruited from Absa Bank, where he was head of commodity finance, to head up the relocated Barclays team.
