Kevin Burke has rejoined Deutsche Bank as head of Institutional and Treasury Coverage (ITC), Asia Pacific, the bank announced on June 24.
The ITC business was created in 2018 to consolidate and strengthen multiple interfaces between the bank and its clients globally. It brings together 1,500 staff in 78 cities across the world to deliver the Corporate & Investment Bank to clients.
Burke rejoins the bank from Standard Chartered, where he was global head of Financial Markets Sales for two years.
Prior to this he was head of Deutsche Bank’s Institutional Client Group for Asia-Pacific, where he played a key role in making Deutsche Bank one of the leading investment banking providers in the region.
The bank has positive momentum in the region, ranking joint 6th in Coalition’s industry revenue league tables for FY 2018, up from joint 7th at the half year. In Corporate Finance APAC, the bank was highlighted as being one of the two strongest performers in the region versus 2017.
In this newly-created role, Burke will be responsible for client coverage strategy across the region, including coordinating client prioritization and engagement to drive the bank’s growth strategy. He will be based in Singapore and will report to Louise Kitchen, head of Institutional and Treasury Coverage, based in London, and Werner Steinmueller, CEO Asia Pacific, based in Hong Kong.
