The German Ambassador and Consul General Volker Schlegel visited the Deutsche Bank offices at Elizabethan Square during his recent visit to Grand Cayman.
The ambassador, who is based in Jamaica, was here to meet with Governor Jack Stuart, officials from the financial regulators and other interest groups, states a press release.
Mr Schlegel took the opportunity to meet with senior staff at Deutsche Bank to learn more about the Bank’s operation in the Cayman Islands and to hear about its plans for the future. Deutsche Bank was founded in Berlin in 1870 and is now a leading, global financial institution.
It established an office in Grand Cayman in 1983 and now employs 30 staff locally.
As the only financial institution in the region with a German heritage it was fitting that the Ambassador made the visit to Deutsche Bank one of his priorities.
Jean-Claude Emard, chief country officer for Deutsche Bank in Cayman said: ‘It was an honour and a pleasure to meet the ambassador. Deutsche Bank has a strong commitment to Grand Cayman and the region and the ambassador was keen to learn more about our business and how we plan to grow in the future. I hope the ambassador will visit us again.’
