People News - C Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Highbridge Capital Management

For Hire

Credit Suisse has hired CIMB Group's head of Australian energy research Mark Samter, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The Wall Street Journal's MoneyBeat reports that Samter - who worked at Citigroup and CLSA before joining CIMB in January - covered Australia’s largest oil and gas names including Origin Energy, Santos, Oil Search, Caltex Australia and Woodside Petroleum for CIMB.

And Bloomberg reports that Deutsche Bank has hired Caroline Kitidis from Goldman Sachs, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Kitidis, 38, will work with wealth-management clients in the U.S., said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the bank hasn’t announced her appointment. She’ll be part of a push by continental Europe’s biggest bank to boost profits from advising the rich and to catch up with UBS and Credit Suisse.

Finally, Bloomberg also reports that Highbridge Capital Management LLC, a unit of JPMorgan Chase, has appointed former Goldman Sachs executive Scott Kapnick chief executive officer of the 21-year-old asset-management firm, replacing co-founder Glenn Dubin.

Dubin will remain chairman and continue to invest his personal money in the firm’s funds, New York-based Highbridge said in a statement last week. Highbridge said it intended since its start 'to establish a business that would outlast its founders'.
