Deutsche Bank completes sale of Philadelphia-based Active Fixed Income business to Aberdeen Asset Management


Deutsche Bank today announced the successful completion of the sale of the Philadelphia-based Active Fixed Income business of Deutsche Asset Management (DeAM) to Aberdeen Asset Management PLC, effective at close of business today (US Eastern Standard Time). The sale does not include DeAM's Philadelphia-based High Yield business, which remains an integral part of the firm's global platform.

This milestone represents the final step in the completion of Deutsche Bank's agreement to sell parts of DeAM's UK and Philadelphia-based asset management businesses to Aberdeen. The sale of DeAM's UK-based institutional Equity, Fixed Income, Global Equity, Multi-Asset and DWS retail businesses was concluded in September.  Not included in the sale were the firm's UK-based Hedge Fund and Real Estate businesses.

"The successful completion of our transaction with Aberdeen Asset Management signifies our strong commitment to create a more focused DeAM business that can provide greater value to our clients and shareholders," said Kevin Parker, Member of Deutsche Bank's Group Executive Committee and Global Head of Deutsche Asset Management.
