Global Derivatives House Of The Year
Deutsche Bank dominates in every region and is consistently ahead of competitors across asset classes and as a result snared the title for the second year running. The management team of Yassine Bouhara, head of global markets equity, and Boaz Weinstein, head of global credit trading, has ensured Deutsche Bank maintains its cachet as the firm peers want to beat and the house that end users, whether hedge funds, corporates or institutional asset managers, have come to rely on. "It's just had a storming year, again," summed up one market observer. Pioneering credit or equity structures, the firm is also successful in trading and structuring hybrids across asset classes, which has proved a major stumbling block for other firms. It has been one of the most active in playing credit-default swaps versus equity variance swaps. It has built its investment product business by combining exotic payoffs with hybrid reference entities, ranging from property, commodities and equities to foreign exchange, inflation and hedge funds.
