Deutsche Bank has announced the creation of a dedicated FX sales team in the Nordic region. Covering all institutional, sovereign, public sector, corporate and mid cap clients in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, the new sales force will be based in Stockholm and will provide a multi-product service.

The new FX team will further strengthen Deutsche Bank’s local Nordic operation. At present, the bank operates offices in Stockholm, Helsinki and Oslo with more than 40 dedicated professionals providing Nordic clients with corporate finance, transaction banking, equity brokerage, equity research, asset management and private wealth management services.

The team starts today and is made up of long standing and experienced local FX specialists. It is led by Tommy Rolke, with Martin Hessle, Peter Odefalk and Henrik Svensson joining him.

Zar Amrolia, global head of foreign exchange at Deutsche Bank comments, “Foreign exchange is a local business with a global product. As the world’s leading FX bank, we aim to provide our clients with the most comprehensive and sophisticated local coverage and we are pleased that Tommy and the team will be joining us to do this. He and his team will offer clients a direct and personalised service that takes advantage of synergies across client segments.”

Tommy Rolke joins Deutsche Bank from Swedbank where he spent two years as head of FX Sales. He was previously part of Deutsche Bank’s FX sales team in London for six years and before joining Deutsche Bank he spent time at RBC and SEB.

Martin Hessle joins Deutsche Bank from SEB where he held a specialist sales role within the FX trading area. He was previously at Svenska Handelsbanken and was also for several years working with Citibank's local FX sales team in Stockholm.
