Shrikent reports to William Nichol, managing director and head of FIG for Asia. He assumes the role after a vice president in the FIG group recently left the firm.
Shrikent moves over to Deutsche from Credit Suisse where he was vice president of FIG Asia ex-Japan. He held this role since 2000 and brings 11 years of investment banking experience to his new employer.
In his years in the investment banking business, Shrikent has participated in the listing of Standard Chartered Bank in Hong Kong, Bank Mandiri in Indonesia, China Life Insurance in Hong Kong and has advised in a number of M&A transactions for financial institutions in Asia.
His resume also includes stretches with BZW in Hong Kong and American Express Bank in India.
"We continue to see active capital markets activities, including structured balance sheet transactions among financial clients and his addition will ensure Deutsche Bank further reinforces its position as a leading player in the sector,ö says Nichol.
His appointment is with immediate effect.
The AU$85 billion ($61.6 billion) Australian super fund has some exposure to indebted property developer Evergrande. Meanwhile, China’s construction finance is part of its core strategy in real estate.
