DeAWM hires Mendelson to lead product management and development in the Americas


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has appointed Simon Mendelson as a managing director and head of product management and development in the Americas.

Based in New York, Mendelson reports to Jerry Miller, head of Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, Americas.
In this newly created position, Mendelson will be responsible for overseeing the development, implementation and positioning of DeAWM’s investment products and solutions in the Americas. He will play a key role in aligning DeAWM’s investment and distribution channels, not only to develop and deliver new products, but also to manage and optimise existing product capabilities.
“Simon brings extensive experience and a deep understanding across our broad investment capabilities,” says Miller. “His appointment will help to accelerate DeAWM’s growth strategy by aligning our product offerings with the needs of investors.”
Over the last six months, DeAWM has added more than a dozen asset and wealth management executives to its Americas team while investing in new technology and launching fund offerings. In November 2013, DeAWM Americas launched the first ETF to provide access to China A-shares with AUM doubling in size since the launch.
Mendelson has more than two decades of leadership and operating experience having spent nine years at BlackRock and 14 years at McKinsey & Co. He was most recently global head of product development at BlackRock, which he joined in 2005.
