Sad to report.

Sally Dawson, a Deutsche Bank executive in London who specialized in high-yield and distressed-debt sales, has died. She was just 39.

Bloomberg reports that she died on 18th October at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea, according to her father, Jim Dawson. The cause was metastatic breast cancer, which was diagnosed early this year.

In a 17-year career at Deutsche Bank, beginning soon after her graduation from Royal Holloway University of London, Dawson rose to director in fixed-income sales. She worked with asset managers and pension funds within the Institutional Client Group of the Frankfurt-based company, Europe’s largest investment bank by revenue.

'She had many institutional clients, not only in the U.K. but all over Europe, and there were links to American funds as well', her father said Monday in an interview. 'Her customers, institutional funds and pension funds and hedge funds, they all appreciated doing business with Sally because she was personable and social and also got them what they were looking for. That’s what you’re looking for in a salesman'.

In a statement, Deutsche Bank said, 'We are deeply saddened by Sally’s death, and our thoughts are with her family at this time'.
