Deutsche Bank hires Daniel Feehan to expand like-kind exchange services

Deutsche Bank today announced that Daniel Feehan has joined its Trust & Securities Services business, part of the Global Transaction Banking division, to expand the Bank’s product offering for like-kind exchanges.

Under IRS Code 1031, corporations and individuals are able to defer recognition of capital gains liabilities which result from the sale of real estate, personal property or other assets, when the proceeds of the sale are used to acquire a replacement “like-kind” asset. The like-kind exchange process requires the participation of a Qualified Intermediary and an escrow agent.

Deutsche Bank currently provides escrow services in this market and has previously worked with a number of Qualified Intermediaries. It will now also provide Qualified Intermediary services in-house, offering clients a streamlined exchange process and the added security of having their funds held on deposit by a bank with AA/Aa1 credit ratings*.

Daniel Feehan, based in the Bank’s Boston office, will assume responsibility for developing Deutsche Bank’s Qualified Intermediary business and for expanding its overall like-kind exchange product offering. Dan was previously a Senior Vice President at Chicago Deferred Exchange Corporation and before that was with J.P. Morgan Property Exchange, Inc. where he worked with the company’s real estate and corporate like-kind exchange clients.

“Dan Feehan is a great addition to the team and will spearhead the further development of our one stop shop for REITs and other participants in the real estate markets,” said Kevin Plein, Business Head for Global Debt Services Americas. “This appointment is particularly timely given that clients have expressed a desire to have their funds invested safely and securely while on deposit with a Qualified Intermediary. We believe our experience combined with the financial strength of Deutsche Bank will differentiate us in the marketplace."
