Shirin Aguiar, Reporter, London, 12 January 2022


The wealth and private banking arm of the German bank has made a senior hire in London as it pursues ESG targets.

The international private banking arm of Deutsche Bank has appointed Muriel Danis (pictured) as global head of product platforms and sustainable solutions. 

Danis will be joining the bank with over 22 years of experience across global markets and private banking, most recently at HSBC in London as global chief operating officer in the wealth management division’s products and investment groups. Based in London, her appointment at Deutsche Bank will be effective from 14 March 2022.

Prior to this, she  worked in an array of roles, including global head of advisory, and global head of product management and business development. She was also a director in the Family Office Partnership, Middle East and Africa in Dubai. Before joining HSBC, she had a number of positions within Credit Suisse’s private bank and global markets divisions.

In the newly-created role, Danis will be responsible for the continuous development of Deutsche Bank’s product and services platforms across the IPB’s client segments and will ensure robust governance across regions. This will include responsibility for trading and capital markets governance, funds, alternatives and accounts, cards and payments products as well as supporting the development of the IPB’s sustainable solutions in line with the commitments laid out at the Sustainability Deep Dive in May 2021.

“Muriel Danis’ appointment is testament to our business’ ability to attract leading industry talent to our fast-growing product platform and reflects our ambition to become the house of choice for clients who wish to make positive social change. Her role will be a significant driver as we pursue delivery of the IPB’s ESG targets,” Claudio de Sanctis, global head of the bank’s IPB and chief executive officer EMEA, said.
