Rex Ma has crossed from Credit Suisse to Deutsche Bank to assume the position of managing director and head of rates structuring, Asia. With immediate effect, he takes on the newly created role in its Hong Kong offices and comes as Deutsche looks to strengthen its position in the rates structuring market.

In his new posting, Ma will be responsible for structuring interest rate, hybrid and fund derivative products and will work with his superiors to further co-ordinate its Asian and European rates structuring efforts.

For Deutsche, Ma reports directly to David Lynne, its Singapore-based head of global rates trading for Asia, and on a global basis, to Bhupinder Singh, head of European and Asian rates structuring.

At Credit Suisse, Ma was previously the head of rates structuring, while also holding the roles of head of private bank and third party distribution for Asia ex-Japan. Ma also brings experience from Morgan Stanley, Schroders and Citigroup to Deutsche Bank.
