Morgan Stanley named Martin Luehrs as head of Global Capital Markets at its Frankfurt subsidiary, a new role that reflects the bank’s strategy to shift more business to continental Europe after Brexit.

Luehrs was based in London, where he was co-head of EMEA Leveraged Capital Markets until January, when he took over the new role. He now runs global capital markets, overseeing both debt and equity across the European Union. A spokesman for the lender confirmed the appointment.
