David Mortlock, Global Head of Equities and Head of the London office, says: "The continued expansion of our team in the first half of 2015 reflects the ongoing success and ambition of the bank in the UK, Europe and US. We are delighted to welcome exciting new talent into the business to help maintain this momentum as Berenberg’s profile continues to grow globally. We still see great opportunities in both cash equities and ECM, driven by our focus on high quality content and real commitment to advising our clients.”
