Deutsche Bank (China) Co named Anthony Lin as head of corporate bank (CBC) and trade finance and cash management for corporates (TF/CMC) in China, with immediate effect.
Based in Shanghai, he will report regionally to Oliver Brinkmann, Greater China head of capital markets and treasury solutions and Kaushik Shaparia, Asia Pacific Head of trade finance and cash management for corporates; and locally to Carl Wegner, Greater China head of global transaction banking. Lin will be responsible for driving the growth strategy of the bank’s corporate banking business in China.
Prior to joining Deutsche Bank, Lin was head of transaction banking at Standard Chartered Bank (China) Ltd. In this role, he covered trade finance, supply chain finance, cash management and securities services offered to corporate and institutional clients in China. He was also general manager of Standard Chartered Bank’s Shanghai branch, responsible for corporate governance and overall business management.
Before taking these business management roles, Lin was head of origination and client coverage for East China. During his career at Standard Chartered, he specialised in credit, sales, products and risk management, and was initially based in Hong Kong.
“With the ongoing internationalisation of the renminbi (RMB), our TF/CMC business in China has grown exponentially, not only from multinational companies doing business in China, but also from Chinese corporates going abroad,” said Kaushik Shaparia from Deutsche Bank. “This market continues to be a growth engine for our Asia Pacific franchise, and beyond. Anthony’s solid experience in transaction banking in China will be invaluable.”
