Burke rejoins the bank from Standard Chartered, where he was Global Head of Financial Markets Sales for two years.

The bank has positive momentum in the region, ranking equal 6th in Coalition’s industry revenue league tables for FY 2018, up from equal 7th at the half year. In Corporate Finance APAC, the bank was highlighted as being one of the two strongest performers in the region versus 2017.
In this newly-created role, Burke will be responsible for client coverage strategy across the region, including coordinating client prioritisation and engagement to drive the bank’s growth strategy. He will be based in Singapore and will report to Louise Kitchen, Head of Institutional and Treasury Coverage based in London, and Werner Steinmueller, CEO Asia Pacific based in Hong Kong.
Kitchen said: “Kevin Burke has a deep understanding of our priority client group in the region and is a great re-hire for Deutsche Bank. We have regained market share in key sectors in APAC and Kevin’s expertise and network, built over 25 years, will accelerate that momentum.”
