SoftBank Said to Hire Ex-Deutsche Bank Trading Chief Colin Fan

  • Fan will help manage SoftBank’s $93 billion Vision Fund
  • Fan left Deutsche Bank in 2015 as part of a management shakeup

Colin Fan, the former co-head of Deutsche Bank AG’s investment banking and trading unit, is joining SoftBank Group Corp., according to a person familiar with the situation.

Fan, 44, once a top deputy of former Deutsche Bank Chief Executive Officer Anshu Jain, resigned from the bank in October 2015 during a management shakeup by new CEO John Cryan. Fan and Matthew Nicholson, a spokesman for SoftBank, declined to comment.
