DeAWM Announces Two Senior Appointments For Asia-Pacific ex-Japan

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management has strengthened its client coverage team in Asia-Pacific with the appointment of two senior executives.

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management has boosted its Asia-Pacific client coverage team with two senior appointments, the firm said in a statement.

Ken Tam assumes the newly-created role of head of global client group, institutional, for Asia-Pacific ex-Japan. In this position, he is responsible for delivering investment products and services to institutional clients across the region. A managing director based in Hong Kong, he reports regionally to Ravi Raju, head of DeAWM Asia-Pacific, and functionally to Dario Schiraldi, head of GCG. He joins from JP Morgan Asset Management and has more than 20 years of industry experience. 

Also newly appointed is Rajan Raju as head of GCG, intermediaries, for Asia-Pacific ex-Japan. Raju leads the intermediary sales and distribution strategy across the region. He joined Deutsche Bank Group in 2010 from DBS Bank with over 20 years of industry experience. He is based in Singapore and reports regionally to Ravi Raju and functionally to Dario Schiraldi.

Around 13 per cent of Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management's global workforce is located in Asia-Pacific. In 2013, the company announced a number of important hires for the region, including Szu-Yi Chin as head of Singapore, Sameer Dev as head of ASEAN, Albert Lau as head of Hong Kong, Patrick Liu as head of China, and Dong-Keun Lee as head of GCG for South Korea.
