Learning About European Banking Expert Harry Harrison

If you didn’t already know, banking is one of the most handsomely-paid sectors to work in on the planet. Money does rule the world, after all. Since most people who deeply understand finance are the same people who have high incomes and levels of wealth, paying most qualified banking candidates requires employers to really thumb off quite a few C-notes from their respective bankrolls.

As in all other fields, employees with tens of years’ worth of experience get paid far more than their subordinates. Society equates high salaries with people who have internal compasses that lead them in the general direction of success. In simpler terms, money equals success.

Harry Harrison, a man of considerable career accomplishment, is considered successful by virtually everybody’s sense of judgment. Mr. Harrison worked for Barclays Investment Bank, a subsidiary of the world-famous Barclays financial institution, for nearly a quarter-century. Throughout that time, Harry undoubtedly racked up substantial earnings. As a matter of fact, he was paid handsomely when he was first hired by Barclays in September 1989 as an entry-level derivatives trader.

Here’s what Harry Harrison is best known for

Everybody is known for something. Even quiet, uneventful people who largely stick to themselves are known for something, whatever those qualities might be.

Mr. Harrison is unarguably best known for his most recent stint with Barclays, specifically under its subsidiary responsible for the management of risk-weighted assets, Barclays Non-Core, which was founded in 2014 and closed just last year.

Although the offshoot has since folded, Barclays Non-Core was initially responsible for managing some 25 percent of the Barclays Group’s total risk-weighted assets in 2014. Risk-weighted assets require financial institutions to hold minimum levels of capital to cover their owners in the event of their potential devaluation.

Since they’re so risky, only the best banking professionals should be entrusted with their management. This is why Barclays’ top-level executives unanimously named Harry Harrison to the head leadership role of Barclays Non-Core upon its foundation in 2014.

Mr. Harrison’s career was kicked off by attending the University of Cambridge in his pursuit of a master’s of philosophy degree in finance.

Bloomberg reports that services include: same day funding for submitted invoices, account management, collections management, invoice verification, credit services, and online transaction management.

Forbes reports that GreenSky is ranked third in value as a fintech company, with the CEO landing at billionaire status. Zalik shares the success behind his unique business model in which home remodel contractors are the consumers reached through the company’s sales team pitching their user-friendly mobile device apps. Zalik found an opportunity in this market where GreenSky provides easily accessible and quickly-delivered loans for average scoring FICO consumers.

Between the banks and contractor deals, GreenSky Credit’s model allows the company to profit on both sides of the deal. GreenSky Credit serves as a modern-day middleman and is not constrained by defaults.

Forbes continues to share the story of the businessman who built the company. Zalik’s family moved from Israel to Alabama when he was just 4 years old. He scored exceptionally high on the SATs and enrolled in college classes at age 16. During his college education, Zalik established his first company called Microtech, where he had dropped out of college to focus on his company before selling the 20-person company for a few million dollars at age 22.

After being involved in starting two other companies that ultimately failed, Zalik continued on the challenging path to success even after establishing GreenSky Credit. He was determined through his efforts of begging contractors to a $200 Million deal falling apart, but success was found after many would have given up. With Nigel Morris’ partnership and investment in the company, GreenSky surged to unicorn status.
