Deutsche Bank today announced that Young Kim will join as a Managing Director in the Equity Capital Markets (ECM) group responsible for the Energy and Power sector. He will be based in New York and will report to Jeff Bunzel, Deutsche Bank’s Head of ECM in the Americas.
In this new role, Kim will oversee the continued growth of the Bank’s Natural Resources equity origination efforts. He joins Deutsche Bank from UBS where he spent thirteen years, most recently as a Managing Director in the firm’s Equity Capital Markets group focused on offerings in the Energy and Utilities sector. Prior to this, Kim worked in Equity Risk Management at Warburg Dillon Read.
“We see significant upside in natural resources and have been building on our strengths to further align our sector expertise across the platform,” said Bunzel. He added, “Young will be an exceptional addition to the franchise. His extensive experience in the energy sector, especially with Master Limited Partnerships, will be a tremendous benefit for our clients when accessing the equity capital markets.”
Deutsche Bank has been building its capabilities in the Natural Resources sector. Last year, the Bank hired Andy Safran as a Vice Chairman in the Investment Banking Coverage group from Citigroup, where he served as Chairman of the Energy, Power and Chemical groups and Vice Chairman of Global Banking. The Bank also hired David Andrews to the Natural Resources Investment Banking Group and Robert Miller to the Leveraged Finance and Debt Capital Markets team covering Natural Resources. Both joined from Credit Suisse as Managing Directors.
Deutsche Bank's ECM group is a leading provider of equity and equity-linked products and services including, origination, structuring, syndication and stabilization. Year to date, the Bank leads Bloomberg’s ranking by market share of Global IPO offerings. The group was awarded Equity House of the Year by International Financing Review magazine in 2012.
