Deutsche Bank today announced that it has hired Bruce Harting as a Managing Director in its Financial Institutions Group (FIG). Harting will join the bank’s New York office this summer as Head of Banks Investment Banking Coverage. He joins from Credit Suisse where he was most recently a Managing Director in the Financial Services Coverage group. Harting will report to Celeste Guth, Co-Head of Global FIG.
“Bruce is an industry veteran with over 30 years of experience and extensive knowledge of the bank space,” Guth said. “His addition will strengthen our FIG franchise and benefit our clients by ensuring they are well advised on the strategic opportunities that exist for them in what we expect will be an active few years to come.”
Harting spent almost 20 years at Barclays and Lehman Brothers in both investment banking and equity research as a Senior Analyst covering financial institutions and midcap banks. He has advised on numerous M&A transactions and equity offerings for banks, credit card companies and mortgage finance companies.
Harting is the second senior hire the bank has made within its US FIG practice since the start of the year. In March it was announced that Adora Whitaker will join as a Managing Director covering the Insurance space.
