Our business model

We are Germany’s leading bank, with a strong position in Europe and a significant presence in the Americas and Asia Pacific. Our business model is based on a strong partnership with our clients, a large international network, the know-how and skills of our employees, and a broad range of banking products and services. These include commercial and investment banking, retail banking, transaction banking, and Asset Management and Wealth Management to corporations, governments, institutional investors, small and medium-sized businesses, and private clients. We help to circulate money, enable access to financial capital, and manage assets and risk. In 2015, we employed more than 101,000 people and contributed to society as a financial intermediary, taxpayer, and through our foundations and corporate citizenship initiatives. In doing so, we are playing our part in tackling global environmental and social challenges such as the transition to a low-carbon economy and realizing the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
