Deutsche Bank’s Head of Mergers and Acquisitions is Leaving



Henrik Alaksen, global head of Mergers and Acquisitions is preparing to leave Deutsche Bank. The people familiar with this matter say that his position has not been filled yet as this was a “shock” move on his part.

Alaksen is not yet authorized to discuss what his plans will be after his departure, as this is a setback for the company as it stands at one of the leading corporate finance franchises in Europe. Alaksen who is based in London has been working with the bank since 2002, and became global co-head of M&A in 2008 and global head in 2010.

Mr. Alaksen is the latest executive to leave the bank after two other top executives, Anshu Jain and Jürgen Fitschen (leaving in 2017) who are both to be replaced by Briton John Cryan, who was formerly Chief Financial Officer at UBS.

According to Dealogic, Deutsche Bank is ranked 10th in the global standards of M&A as it has worked on $168.2 billion worth of deals.
