In this week's video interview for PA's Investment Influencers series, profiling the most respected individuals who select funds, decide ratings or otherwise influence the allocation of investor fund flows, we chat to Tom Slocock of Deutsche Bank Wealth Management.
Slocock is the firm's managing director and head of its Global Investment Group, with responsibility for sourcing, selecting and recommending investment opportunities for wealth management clients globally. He took on this role in late 2015 after almost seven years as CEO of Deutsche Bank's UK Wealth Management business.
Slocock - who joined Deutsche Bank after a decade at Credit Suisse, where his last role was running the International Private Banking business in London - has spent his entire career in the wealth management industry. His focus has been leading teams and businesses, working with wealthy and sophisticated UK-based individuals and families and helping to source solutions tailored to their specific needs. Slocock holds a degree in Zoology from Oxford University, where he was also a rowing Blue.
The Investment Influencers series, which has most recently featured Etienne de Merlis of Signia, Marcus Brookes of Schroders and Nigel Waller of Oldfield Partners, offers insights into how key players in the asset management sector see the world of investing and expect to deal with such challenges as greater market volatility, increased regulation and a growing trend towards short-termism.
