Deutsche Bank Exec Aids Haiti Relief Efforts Displaying a strong show of support in the aftermath of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Global Equity Markets Division of Deutsche Bank announced the successful fundraising of more than $4 million in relief to affected areas of the disaster from trade commissions. Led by Co-Head of Global Markets Equity Robert Karofsky, Deustche Bank partnered with organizations such as Oxfam America, Partners in Health, and Médecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders) to channel the emergency funds to supply immediate medical relief. Proud of the efforts his division made in raising the relief funds, Robert Karofsky said, "We are extremely gratified to partner with our clients to address the urgent needs of the Haitian people. With the tremendous support of our clients, we were able to generate $4 million in commissions, which will be donated to aid agencies assisting in the immediate and longer-term recovery efforts in Haiti." Along with immediate recovery efforts, Robert Karofsky aided Deutsche Bank in deploying funding through its Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation and its Matching Gifts Program. Focusing on long-term reconstruction support, Mr. Karofsky and Deutsche Bank provide support to multiple organizations including Fonkoze and Fondation Connaissance et Liberté (FOKAL) to restart businesses and create jobs, rebuilding houses and communities in the process. Robert Karofsky possesses a strong charitable commitment that predates the Haiti earthquake. Previously, Mr. Karofsky donated to charities and organizations such as the New York Presbyterian Hospitals, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
