GLOBAL - Deutsche Bank has promoted Roelfien Kuijpers to global head of Deutsche Asset Management's Institutional business.
Kuijpers (pictured) will report to Kevin Parker, global head of DeAM and will be responsible for the fixed income, equities and cash businesses. She will be based in New York.
Kuijpers joined Deutsche Bank in 1995 as a managing director and head of european sales in North America. Prior to Deutsche, Kuijpers was a managing director and head of European equities in North America at SG Warburg.
The appointment reflects a series of restructurings within DeAM that has occurred since Parker’s tenure. Kuijpers position has superseded the previous European, Asian and American institutional head positions at DeAM which no longer exist.
Parker said: “Our strategic focus on improving investment performance across the division gives us a great opportunity to tap new clients and markets. In her new role, Roelfien will further build Deutsche Asset Management’s reputation as one of the leading global providers.”
Deutsche Bank also announced that Tom Curtis will assume Kuijpers’ responsibilities for global strategic planning and communications for DeAM in addition to retaining his current role as global head of business development.
