Michael Halsband who left Goldman Sachs recently is joining Deutsche Bank as a Director in their Capital Markets & Treasury Solutions Group. His new role will see him as a senior member of the New York based insurance solutions team.
Halsband spent five years at Goldman Sachs where he was a VP in the Financing Group responsible for origination, structuring, execution and marketing of catastrophe bonds, sidecars and insurance securitizations.
“Michael is a skilled banker and will enable us to continue to elevate our market share in the sector and more adequately respond to the opportunities that exist on a global basis,” said Paul Puleo. “We believe that he will have an immediate impact on our franchise and will prove a valuable resource to our clients and the Bank.”
“We are extremely pleased to have Michael on board as we continue to expand our capital markets capabilities,” said Erich Mauff, Head of Capital Markets and Treasury Solutions for North America. “He brings a unique breadth of experience to our platform and we are confident that he will help us build on our success.”
Halsband is a well known figure in the catastrophe bond and ILS markets and this move could see a greater focus from Deutsche Bank on this sector.
