Deutsche Bank has brought in Lisa Robins as head of its Asia Pacific global transaction banking business.

In the role, Robins will be responsible for expanding the bank’s cash management and cross-border trade, among other products.

Singapore-based Robins will report to Deutsche’s head of global transaction banking Werner Steinmueller and Boon-Chye Loh, head of the corporate and investment banking division for Asia Pacific.

“We are particularly excited about Lisa’s appointment as we continue to invest in our franchise in the Asia Pacific region,” says Steinmueller.

Deutsche Bank has highlighted the region as a key growth area for the transaction banking business.
Steinmueller adds: “Lisa’s vast experience across products and geographies will play a crucial role in our growth strategy for Asia.”

Robins brings more than two decades’ experience to the position, and was most recently a managing director in JP Morgan’s treasury and security services.

She has also worked as vice-chairman for JP Morgan China.
