SG CIB media relations manager Sophie Hoggarth said the bank was drawing up a shortlist but declined to comment further.
Hogarth supports SG CIB's press office in the UK and provides some strategic advice. It is understood that Hogarth has been invited
to pitch for a revised and expanded brief.
The division holds a major stake in I2, a fund set up by SG CIB and Barclays Private Equity. I2 has a portfolio of health, education, transport and defence PFI project investments.
