They include the names below. Historically, Deutsche has been known for paying its MDs unusually generous salaries, particularly in the American market, where it is hamstrung by the European bonus cap. Sources at the bank say these have dissipated in recent years, but headhunters say it's still not unknown for Deutsche Bank MDs in London to receive salaries alone of $820k. 

Some of the those on the list (Riccardo Bilò, Annie Koutsavgousti) are on their second stints Deutsche Bank. Marion Laboure, a London-based macro strategist with a PhD has a sideline as an economics lecturer at Harvard, despite being based in London. 

Deutsche Bank didn't respond to a request to comment on its promotions.
