The German bank's share of the Asian market has doubled over the last two years, with the firm now commanding as much as 20% of that market. And the firm, which increased its headcount by more than 20% over the last two years, plans to boost it a further 10% this year.
"Our growth in 2008 and 2009 was a function in the main of risk diversification, especially as people added a second, third prime broker to allay concerns about counterparty exposure," Marlin Naidoo, head of the Asia-Pacific hedge fund capital group, told Reuters.

Deutsche Bank currently boasts about 70 prime brokerage professionals in the region.
