Mr. Aslaksen lands at Credit Suisse after nearly thirteen years at Deutsche Bank, having worked in multiple senior level roles, including stints as a Managing Director and Global Head of Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), dating back to 2002 when he joined the bank. At the time, the move was largely unexpected and coincided with other key departures from Deutsche Bank’s operations – this included the loss of its co-CEO Anshu Jain, who also parted ways with the bank around the same time.
During his tenure at Deutsche Bank, he was one of the group’s top investment bankers and had been based out of London for the duration of his time with the lender. Prior to joining Deutsche Bank in 2002, Mr. Aslaksen also worked at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) for a period of nine years as its Managing Director, in which he specialized in the M&A space all the way back to 1993, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.
In his new role at Credit Suisse, Mr. Aslaksen will be involved with the groups bid for the IBCM unit’s symbiosis with the lender’s wealthy clientele. He is poised to play a critical advisory role to the unit not only in Switzerland but across the EMEA region – he steps into his new role on April 25, 2016. Finance Magnates reached out to Credit Suisse, which was unavailable for additional comment.
