Morgan Stanley (London) team reunited at Deutsche Capital Group
Deutsche Capital Group, a global private investment group, is pleased to announce that Alvaro Mira Blanco, Samy Al-Habal, Sabrina Tazi-Riffi, Philippe Sikias and Caroline Burel have joined the team in Germany, while Nour Tassabehji has joined in Dubai.
The new arrivals will strengthen Deutsche Capital Group’s footprint in the Middle East. The team will also allow the firm to diversify into European and Latin market sectors, including wealthy professionals from within the investment management and commodity trading communities.
Mira Blanco has joined from Bank Safra, while Al-Habal, Sikias, Tazi-Riffi and Burel have joined from UBS. The team will be reunited with their former colleague, Manon Duez, with whom they had previously worked together at Morgan Stanley in London.
“Our goal remains to attract talented market-orientated professionals, who work directly with our clients to manage their wealth – luckily for us, one or two American banks closed their London business as we started,” said Klaus Weber, co-founder and managing partner at Deutsche Capital Group in London.
“We are delighted to welcome our new partners and colleagues. They bring us additional client depth as well as expertise in servicing clients with more active trading needs,” he added.
“As a boutique private investment business our key differentiator is the ability to make an asset allocation shift or specific investment opportunity quickly. Alvaro, Sabrina, Samy, Philippe, Nour and Caroline’s arrival enhances our ability to do that,” said Stephan Hoffman, partner at Deutsche Capital Group in Germany.
