Song joins from ABN AMRO where he was vice-chairman of the Taiwan branch as well as managing director and head of country coverage responsible for supervising investment banking activities in Taiwan.
At Deutsche he will report to Hong Kong-based Peter Tsao, vice-chairman of the global telecommunication, media and technology group within the global banking division û a reporting order that likely reflects the strong focus on technology in Taiwan. Deutsche opened its Taipei branch in 1980 and claims to be one of the largest foreign banks in Taiwan. The global banking division comprises corporate finance, including advisory, ECM and DCM, as well as global transaction banking.
Before he joined ABN AMRO in 1997, Song was an executive director in investment banking at Goldman Sachs in Taipei. He has also worked with Salomon Brothers, SG Warburg and Paribas Capital Markets.
