As mentioned on the FT,   «The addition of Mr Osborne marks the first-time the firm has extended its partnership beyond its three founding members, Sir Simon Robey, Simon Warshaw and Philip Apostolides.  Mr Osborne said: “Robey Warshaw is the best of the best, advising great businesses on how to grow, and I’m proud to be joining this first-rate team” ».

Mr Osborne is expected to help with the bank’s existing clients, including British gas owner Centrica, Vodafone or BP. Robey Warshaw said: “We believe that George will significantly enhance the advice we give to clients. He brings differentiated experience and expertise to our team from his leading roles in global finance over the past decade.” 

George Osborne served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 2010 to 2016 in the Cameron government. A member of the Conservative Party, he was Member of Parliament (MP) for Tatton from 2001 to 2017.
