The 33 new MDs in Deutsche Bank's most important business
Nearly a month after making promotions in its corporate finance and advisory business, Deutsche Bank has just promoted some new managing directors in its all-important fixed income sales and trading business.
Deutsche's fixed income currencies and commodities (FICC) business single-handedly generated 89% of revenues in Deutsche's investment bank last year, and a third of revenues for Deutsche Bank as a whole. People promoted in this year's bonus round will be among those responsible for this outcome.
Nonetheless, 33 isn't a huge number and some of those on DB's latest list have been waiting a long time for the call. They include Natacha Hilger, a relationship manager in Frankfurt, who's worked for the bank for nearly 28 years and Daniel Trew, the head of European short duration sales in London, who's been there over a decade.
Some of the new MDs are recent joiners, however. Marliz Mejia joined from Santander in Jan 2022 and Fabian Lang joined from JPMorgan in July 2021.
Deutsche Bank's London office has historically been disproportionately weighted towards MDs, with the bank employing more MDs and directors than analysts and associates in the past. However, DB has been attempting to redress this by relying more heavily on vice presidents.
