Deutsche Bank Wealth Management has hired Alania Hsu Concepcion as investment management team head for Southeast Asia.

In her new role, Concepcion, will work with clients and relationship management focusing on investment advisory for Southeast Asia.

Concepcion has recently returned to Singapore after almost five years in Europe running her own company and pursuing her interests in ESG and fintech. Before that she was Credit Suisse's head of investment consulting for Singapore and Malaysia.

In her new role she will report to Coo-Way Law, managing director, head of Southeast Asia investment management. 

Law said Concepcion bring "very strong product skills across all asset classes", as well as 17 years of client experience with private banks, family offices, UHNW clients and financial institutions across Southeast Asia.

Urs Brudermann, at Credit Suisse for the past 11 years and most recently as team leader for Thailand, joined Deutsche's wealth management arm as managing director and group head of Southeast Asia.
