Investment banking

In the latest sign of the reshaping of European banking, Deutsche Bank has transferred its real-estate investment banking team to Eurohypo, the property finance specialist created by merging its own mortgage bank subsidiary with those of Dresdner and Commerzbank.

Leading the group are Neil Lawson-May and Paul Rivlin, both old Deutsche hands. They have long experience in the real-estate market. Before joining Deutsche in 1995, Rivlin helped set up County Natwest's property finance team in the mid-1980s.
