Ambitious growth targets
Ayoob’s appointment builds on nearly a decade of investment in human capital and platform in the Gulf and underpins Deutsche Bank Wealth Management’s commitment to the region. Ayoob and his team of relationship managers, located in Dubai, Geneva, Bahrain and Frankfurt, are looking to increase assets under management by 50% over the next three years. To support Ayoob in meeting this ambition, Deutsche Bank Wealth Management will actively seek to enlarge its coverage team this year, within the region and at other major locations.
Proven UHNW solutions and Corporate & Investment Bank capabilities

With its state-of-the-art investment platform and offering, Deutsche Bank Wealth Management has the capabilities to service a growing UHNW clientele across the full spectrum of its needs, from cash management and traditional portfolio management to complex structuring and alternative asset classes. Moreover, Deutsche Bank Wealth Management’s lending capabilities cater to complex and differentiated needs, where required benefiting from direct access to Deutsche Bank’s powerful Corporate & Investment bank.
