#PositiveImpact

For 150 years we’ve financed infrastructure projects that have helped cities and countries move forward, all over the world.

We work in partnership with those who drive progress through their ingenuity, energy and entrepre­neurial spirit

Roads, bridges and tunnels. Airports, ports and public transportation. Cleaner energy. New neighbourhoods. Infrastructure projects like these have a positive impact on economies, society and everyday life. Investment in infrastructure makes better places to live. It creates jobs. It helps business to thrive.

Deutsche Bank has a long history of supporting infrastructure projects, all over the world, by raising finance from investors and committing our own capital.

For 150 years we’ve worked in partnership with those who drive progress through their ingenuity, energy and entrepreneurial spirit. People who can look beyond today to see a different future. Who have the vision to find new ways to connect cities, countries and continents. Who have the imagination to give idle spaces new purpose.

The Kurfürstendamm is one of the best-known streets in Berlin. Everyone calls it the Ku’damm. At one time this was just a country road on the western edge of the city. As Berlin grew it needed more room. The development of the Ku’damm in 1882 created a new quarter of shops, restaurants, offices and residences. Financing from Deutsche Bank helped make it happen.

People have come to the Ku’damm ever since to work, live and play. Sculpted by war and peace, decline and revival, this neighbourhood has never stood still. Financing and investment keep the Ku’damm and Berlin moving forward. This is how cities are made.
