Deutsche Börse hires ex-Deutsche Bank Marc Peter Klein as Chief Compliance Officer

“His longstanding expertise will be a welcome addition to Group Compliance.”

Deutsche Börse has appointed Marc Peter Klein as Managing Director of Group Compliance, effective 1 January 2023.

Marc Peter Klein joins Deutsche Börse from Deutsche Bank, where he served as Head Business Line AFC Corporate and Investment Bank Germany & EMEA for seven years, after having worked several years in senior positions in other financial institutions in Germany and Luxembourg.

Marc Peter Klein studied at the University of Trier and the London Business School and is a qualified and certified lawyer in bank and capital markets law. He remains an Associate Professor at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.

Heike Eckert, member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Börse responsible for HR & Compliance, said: “I am delighted to welcome Marc Peter Klein to Deutsche Börse.

Deutsche Börse’s 36oT hired Chris Soutar to sales team

In regard to other executive moves at Deutsche Börse, the banking group’s FX marketplace, 360T, appointed Chris Soutar to its sales team in May.

Soutar joined 360T from Deutsche Börse’s derivatives-focused exchange Eurex, where he worked in institutional forex sales from September 2019 until May 2022 – just under three years. At Eurex, he helped help unify the FX sales team globally and review its currency product suite as it builds out a full-service FX platform to improve client experience.

Soutar joined Eurex after nearly two years with Investec, an international specialist banking and asset management group, where he oversaw the company’s FX sales. Prior to this, he spent four years at State Street’s foreign exchange (FX) business, Currenex, from 2014 to 2017.

The move marks Deutsche Borse’s continued expansion motive in the foreign exchange space and institutional level trading businesses. It comes after nearly seven years of Deutsche Borse’s foray into FX ECN of its own with the acquisition of 360T, which turned to be the center of the exchange’s global FX business.
