Deutsche Bank’s Asset Management division (DeAM) today announced that Randy Brown and Robert Goodman will become Co-Heads of Global Insurance Asset Management (GIAM). Brown and Goodman will report to Kevin Parker, Global Head of Deutsche Asset Management and a Member of the Deutsche Bank Group Executive Committee, and will also join DeAM’s Global Operating Committee. Brown will be based in New York, and Goodman is based in Zurich.
Brown will join DeAM on Aug. 15 from BlackRock, where he is Co-Head of Portfolio Management for the Financial Institutions Group. At DeAM, he will be a Managing Director responsible for GIAM’s global investment platform, as well as trading, technology and other operational functions.
Goodman, a Managing Director and Global Head of Insurance Relationships, will continue in that role and maintain overall responsibility for distribution and client relationship management.
“We are extremely pleased to add a world-class talent like Randy to our team, and I am confident that under Randy and Robert’s leadership the GIAM business will continue to build on its top-ranked position,” said Parker. “Our deep specialization in the insurance sector, combined with our full range of traditional and alternative investment capabilities, puts us in a strong position to service the growing demand by insurers for asset management outsourcing solutions.”
In his prior role, Brown was jointly responsible for BlackRock’s investing on behalf of insurance companies, managing $120 billion of fixed income assets for a client base that included more than 100 insurance companies. In addition to his investment responsibilities across a wide range of fixed income sectors, he was heavily involved in asset allocation, trading, technology and strategic problem-solving for insurance clients. Prior to BlackRock, Brown was a Principal in Mortgage Trading at Morgan Stanley where he ran the trading desk. He earned a BS and MS degree in Electrical Engineering and an MBA, all from Cornell University. He began his career as a mortgage-backed securities trader at Salomon Brothers.
Since joining DeAM in January 2006, Goodman has led GIAM's new business development and
client service teams. Prior to DeAM, he was Global Head of Insurance Investment Banking at NM Rothschild & Sons and Lazard. Goodman also was a partner at McKinsey & Co., where he was Co-Head of the European Insurance Practice. A graduate of Swarthmore College, he earned an MA from Harvard University and a JD from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.
