Ex-Deutsche bank co-CEO Anshu Jain joins Cantor Fitzgerald
Anshu Jain, the former Deutsche Bank AG co-chief executive officer, has joined New York-based investment banking and brokerage firm Cantor Fitzgerald (CFLP) as president.
Working with Howard W Lutnick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CFLP, Jain will build on Cantor Fitzgerald’s strong client-focused business foundation and drive the Firm’s momentum as it enters the next phase of growth.
He will be based in CFLP's headquarters in New York.
Excited with his joining, Lutnick said,
We are happy to welcome Jain as President of Cantor Fitzgerald, L.P. He is a world-class leader in the financial services industry. With this outstanding addition, we expect to improve our already exceptional service to clients, extend and expand the products and services we offer, and increase the capital available to assist clients”.
In one of his statement, Jain praised Lutnick’s leadership stating,
'I have long admired Lutnick’s extraordinary leadership and successful efforts as he and his team rebuilt and expanded the Firm after 9/11. From the end of 2001 through now, CFLP has grown dramatically from several hundred employees and partners to over 10,000 globally across financial services and real estate. Cantor’s unwavering determination to succeed despite past adversity, along with its fiercely loyal client base, and unique global position, are what attracted me to this great Firm.”
Jain joined Deutsche Bank in 1995 and rose to lead a corporate and investment banking division that produced most of the company’s revenue. He then became the co-CEO of Deutsche Bank in 2012 till 2015. He helped build Deutsche Bank into Europe’s biggest securities firm over two decades before stepping down in June 2015 as profitability suffered amid a trading slump, stiffer regulation and years of government probes.
