Deutsche Bank has appointed Alan Ruskin as managing director and global head of G10 FX strategy in its global research group.

Mr Ruskin will report to Bilal Hafeez, managing director and global head of FX research, and be based in New York. He will join the bank in August following a notice period.

Mr Ruskin joins Deutsche Bank with more than 20 years of experience in FX strategy, most recently with Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS), where he was global head of FX strategy.

Previously, he founded IDEAglobal, an independent, global research organization where he designed an original online cross market product suite covering FX, money and bond markets.

Mr Hafeez said: “I am delighted to welcome Alan to our research franchise, and I’m confident he will be a major asset as we enhance our research offering to our US and global client base, providing leading insights into FX markets and delivering industry-leading foreign exchange research to our clients.”
