Deutsche Bank has added to its Americas Corporate Finance franchise with the appointment of Eri Kakuta as a Managing Director and senior coverage banker.
Kakuta joins from Goldman Sachs where she was most recently a Managing Director and senior member of the Financial Institutions Group within the Investment Banking Division.
“A seasoned banker with over 20 years of experience, Eri is a strong addition to our team,” says Celeste Guth, Co-Head of Global FIG. “Her track record advising clients on strategic opportunities, particularly relating to cross-border activity with Japanese financial institutions, will be a great asset to our clients globally.”
Kakuta’s appointment compliments the five previous hires the bank has made in other sectors across FIG. She is also the 16th Managing Director Americas Corporate Finance has announced it has hired in the US since the beginning of the year
