Berenberg's new heads of UK investment banking
Berenberg has selected new co-heads for its UK Investment Banking business.
Ben Wright and Matt Armitt - the co-heads of Berenberg’s UK corporate broking & advisory business - have been promoted into the role, according to an internal memo seen by eFinancialCareers. They ran the corporate broking & advisory business for two and a half years for the German bank in London.
Wright joined Berenberg in 2015 from Singer Capital Markets (then N+1 Singer), whilst Matt Armitt joined in 2018 from London-based investment bank Peel Hunt, where he was a partner.
The pair replace Chris Bowman, who left the bank to be CFO of Sirius Real Estate, a Berlin-based real estate investment trust (and Berenberg client). Bowman joined Berenberg in 2015 from Liberum Capital.
Berenberg leaking senior staff might not be a surprise. Not only has it cut staff of its own accord, but a vicious bonus season has seen the bank leaking senior staff, including research big shot Sarah Simon and head of aerospace & defence research Ross Law.
