Dredner Kleinwort is establishing a new hedge fund solutions group, headed by a hedge fund veteran and former Deutsche Bank U.S. equities chief Martin Newson.
Newson left his New York post at DB in 2004 to join Nator, the long/short European hedge fund now known as Remus Capital. Based in London, he has also worked at Credit Suisse First Boston and Goldman Sachs.
“The hedge fund community is an important client base for Dresdner Kleinwort, so we wanted to have the best possible structure and capability to service them,” head of capital markets Jens Peter Neumann said. Martin will report to both Neumann and head of global banking Bert Piedra in his new post, as he works to coordinate Dresdner’s hedge fund services.
