EUROPE - Deutsche Asset Management (DeAM) has boosted its European operations with two new appointments in its target growth markets, France and the Netherlands.
In the first instance, Brian Urban has left NIBC Bank to join DeAM as a director and head of institutional sales for the Netherlands, based in Amsterdam.
Urban now reports to Peter Kerger, head of institutional distribution, Europe.
At NIBC Bank, he was responsible for alternative investment sales, including funds of hedge funds and hedge-fund linked derivatives. Prior to that he was a senior sales manager at JPMorgan Asset Management in Amsterdam.
In the French market, Stéphanie Schmidt has joined DeAM’s Paris-based institutional sales team as a vice president.
Schmidt has joined from ADI Alternative Investments, where she specialised in selling alternative products. She now reports to Thibault Amand, head of institutional sales for France.
Peter Roemer, head of the European institutional business for DeAM, said both appointments were intended to strengthen DeAM’s distribution and client service capabilities in Europe.
