Chris Lee reappears at Deutsche Bank as head of GMIP and db-X, Asia

Chris Lee joins Deutsche Bank in Asia

Chris Lee has been appointed as Deutsche Bank's managing director and head of global markets investment products (GMIP) and db-X for Asia, starting in the Hong Kong-based position on Wednesday June 23. Lee joins from UBS, where he was head of equity risk management products sales and head of the cross-divisional intermediary business in Asia. Lee replaces Nitin Nath, who left the job a week ago but remains at the bank.

At Deutsche, Lee will be responsible for multi-asset third-party and in-house retail and private bank sales platform GMIP, as well as the db-X listed investment product platform, which includes certificates, structured notes, funds, warrants and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). For GMIP, Lee will report to Anjul Oberai and Shen Yan, co-heads of the institutional client group for Asia ex-Japan, and to Bhupinder Singh, head of structuring and the institutional client group in Asia, for his db-X responsibilities.

Lee left UBS in April after spending a year running the bank's structured products group following the departure of Min Park to head Credit Suisse's structured products business in March 2009, alongside head of equity derivatives trading Asia ex-Japan Kenneth Pang. Park and Pang – along with a raft of more junior staff – moved to join Credit Suisse's Hong Kong office in broadly similar roles. Lee had previously reported to Park.

Following Lee's appointment at Deutsche, Neha Bakshi has been appointed head of GMIP for South Asia and will transfer to Singapore from Hong Kong. Bakshi moves from the position of head of rates structuring for North Asia and head of asset-side commodities structuring for Asia at Deutsche Bank.

Michael Chang has been appointed head of GMIP for North Asia. He was previously head of GMIP for greater China and remains based in Hong Kong. Danny Chan remains head of equity sales for private banks, Asia. He is based in Hong Kong.

Bakshi, Chang and Chan report to Lee.
