Strategy

We are a leading European bank with a global reach supported by a strong home base in Germany, Europe’s largest economy. We serve the real economy needs of our corporate, institutional, asset management and private clients, providing services in transaction banking, corporate finance and capital markets, asset management, wealth management and retail banking.

The fundamental goal of our strategic measures is to make Deutsche Bank a stronger, safer bank that is well positioned to pursue growth opportunities through its strong global client franchise. Our management believes we will be able to achieve this by:
  • having capital levels the sufficiency of which are beyond question,
  • having a leading CIB franchise with the scale and strength to successfully compete and grow globally,
  • occupying the number one private and commercial banking position in our home market of Germany,
  • giving our world class Deutsche AM division operational segregation that can support accelerated growth,
  • reducing the size of our corporate center and cost base in part through more front to back alignment and shifting large portions of infrastructure functions to the business divisions and
  • shifting our earnings and business mix more towards stable businesses.

“It is our clients who are at the centre of this strategic refinement. There are three core elements: Strengthening our position in our home market by combining Postbank with our Private & Commercial Clients business, thus creating the clear market leader in Germany; Unleashing the growth potential of Deutsche Asset Management by floating a minority stake; And Reinforcing our business with international corporations by creating a single, integrated corporate and investment bank. This business has been the hallmark of Deutsche Bank since we were founded.”

(from a message from John Cryan to the Bank’s employees on March 5th, 2017)
