Caroline Silver is a prolific dealmaker. In May of 2008 she left her job as vice chair of investment banking at Morgan Stanley to join rival Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. as Regional Vice Chair Of Investment Banking.
Silver was the main banker in the team behind Aviva's ultimately unsuccessful £17 billion attempt to buy rival insurer, Prudential in 2006, while she was also highly influential in defending German pharmaceuticals giant Schering against a hostile bid, lining up Bayer as a friendly purchaser. She also advised on a raft of other high profile deals, including the recent £12 billion rights issue mounted by Sir Fred Goodwin's Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).
