Deutsche Asset Management Inc. on June 4 hired H. Dean Benner to head the firm's $81.6 billion fixed-income management business for insurance companies. The appointment comes as more insurers have been looking to outsource their fixed-income management, according to Eric Kirsch, Deutsche's head of North America fixed income for the firm. Most of the insurance company assets were acquired as a result of Deutsche Asset's $2.5 billion merger with Zurich Scudder Investments Inc. in April 2002, which made Deutsche one of the world's largest asset managers, with $660 billion in managed assets. Benner comes to the firm from Credit Suisse Asset Management LLC, where he was a managing director of structured core fixed-income management.
