Wu will be responsible for leading Deutsche Bank’s strategic growth plans for trade finance and cash management with an emphasis on targeted market expansion and product roll-outs.

Based in Shanghai, he will report regionally to Kaushik Shaparia, head of trade finance and cash management corporates, Asia.

Frank’s appointment will ensure that the synergies across mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan are leveraged to support our clients’ needs and their growth potential.”
