Deutsche Recruits Former RBC Wealth Planning Head In New York

Eliane Chavagnon, Editor Americas, 8 July 2015


This publication reports on more moves in and around the global wealth management sector.

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management has brought in former RBC wealth veteran Francesca Boschini as a director and international wealth planner in New York.

Boschini reports to Andrew Gallivan, head of wealth planning services and custody in the Americas, and Felipe Godard, head of wealth management in Latin America.

“As we look to expand our presence in Latin America, her expertise will be critical in implementing effective  and compliant solutions for the complex global taxation, estate planning and wealth management needs of our international clients,” said Gallivan.

Boschini was latterly a director and head of US and international wealth planning at Royal Bank of Canada, where she led a team of wealth planning and fiduciary specialists in New York, and provided technical assistance to RBC’s trust and wealth management offices globally. From 2007 to 2013, Boschini was a director on the board of RBC’s Delaware Trust Company and, more recently, was a member of the management team advisory council.

Over the past year, DeAWM has expanded its wealth management presence in Latin America, the West Coast, Texas and Miami, Florida. Earlier this year, Santiago Trigo and Dessy Arteaga joined as managing directors covering Latin America, while other key hires have included Lee Hutter - who was appointed as head of the US Western region last September - and Mark LaRoe, who was taken on to open a private banking office in Dallas, Texas. The firm also added private banking teams in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles in 2014.
