LBBW is expanding its financial markets business in Asia and has appointed an experienced expert to head the corresponding activities in its Singapore Branch. Jan Krüger, previously head of the Equity Markets department and, amongst others, responsible for LBBW's successful certificates business will head the newly established Financial Markets APAC department from 1 September.
Jan Krüger has been working for LBBW since 1991, and since 2000 in various leading positions in the capital markets business on both, the trading and sales side. Since 2016, he has been in charge of trading and risk management for equities and equity derivatives, with a focus on the bank’s certificates business, as well as product management. In addition, Jan Krüger is voluntarily involved as a Member of the Board of the German Derivatives Association (DDV).
"Being present for our clients internationally with a broad variety of products and expertise is becoming increasingly important to LBBW. We therefore are pleased that we have been able to win a top executive from our own ranks with more than 25 years of capital market experience to support our growth in Asia. Jan Krüger brings all the prerequisites to further advance LBBW's growth strategy in Asia," says Dr. Christian Ricken, LBBW Member of the Board of Directors, responsible for the Capital Markets business, AM and International Business. "The reorganisation of LBBW's financial markets business in Singapore with Jan Krüger in the lead is an important milestone to further strengthening and expanding our regional financial markets strategy," adds Jens Rübbert, Head of LBBW's Asia/Pacific region.
Jan Krüger's current position in Stuttgart will be temporarily taken over by Dr. Thilo Rossberg in parallel to his duties as Head of the FICC Markets department until the succession is permanently arranged.
