Meet Our Team

Barry Sharkey

Capital Markets

What’s your role at Barrenjoey?

I work in our Corporate Finance division, with a specific focus on helping to grow our Capital Markets team. We provide advice to corporate, government and other institutional clients on a broad range of capital markets and financing transactions.
I’m also a member of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee. We’re finalising our key priorities in this area, but the overall objective is clear – we want Barrenjoey to be a workplace where everyone is respected, included and valued.

What attracted you to the firm?

It’s rare to see a brand new, locally owned, full service financial services firm being built.
I was keen to be involved from the beginning – based on the calibre and character of the leadership group, and the global partnership with Barclays.

What did you do before joining?

Prior to joining the firm in 2021, I worked at UBS for 15 years, after starting my career as a web designer and corporate lawyer (yes, this makes no sense).
