Risk magazine recognized Deutsche Bank as Bank Risk Manager of the Year, 2013, for the second time in four years.
Deutsche Bank was also awarded Best Hedge Fund Derivatives House, the sixth year in a row that it has won this category which focuses on structured products for hedge funds and hedge fund investors.
Explaining its choices, International International Financing Review (IFR) said: "Deutsche Bank’s mantra is Passion to Perform and its credentials throughout the IFR Awards period showed it has not yet tired of doing so, adding market share across almost all product lines in spite of already occupying a top-tier position. Complacency, it appears, is not a word that features in the Bank’s dictionary."
It is the first time a bank has won all three of the key global debt awards in the same year – and the first time a bank has won the Bond House award three years in a row.
This recognition is based on employer branding research that surveyed the 150 biggest employers in Italy from 13 industries in 10 categories. In the financial industry, Deutsche Bank scored above average in all categories.
As part of the survey, a representative sample of 7,000 people aged 18-65 were asked to evaluate companies for their attractiveness.
