Deutsche Bank has hired Tommaso Zanobini as Managing Director and Global Head of Financial Technology (Fintech), a joint venture between Deutsche Bank’s FIG and TMT banking team.
Zanobini was previously at Jefferies where he was most recently the Global Head of Financial Technology and Services based in New York. Prior to joining Jefferies in 2014, Zanobini was Head of Global Technology Services at Barclays. He started his career at Lehman Brothers when he joined as an Associate and spent 15 years in their Technology Group. Tommaso earned his MBA in Accounting and Finance from Columbia Business School and his BA in Economics from the University of Florence, Italy. He also holds a diploma in piano and composition from the Conservatory of Florence.
Mark Keene, Global Co-Head of Technology Media and Telecom said that Tommaso’s global relationships with companies in the Fintech space will be “very valuable” as they “deepen their coverage” of Fintech.
Celeste Guth, Global Co-Head of Financial Institutions Group added that Tommaso has extensive M&A experience, perhaps foreshadowing future acquisitions as Deutsche Bank seeks to adapt to the new digital landscape in finance.
