Deutsche Bank is the undisputed number one in German IPOs

A 10-year comparison shows the bank’s dominance of flotations in its home market

When Deutsche Bank has arranged a stock market flotation for a company over the last 10 years the outcome for investors has mostly been good, according to analysts at the influential German financial blog Finanz-Szene.de [German only].

Finanz-Szene.de reported that over the previous 10 years Deutsche Bank was a lead manager on 29 of the total 99 IPOs on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

In addition, Deutsche Bank has a “winning ratio” - the proportion of new issues that have outperformed the total market since flotation - of 55 percent, a level unmatched by most of the other issuing banks.

In Deutsche Bank’s home market there is no other bank that arranges as many IPOs including the largest flotations where the bank is a dominant force – incontrovertible proof of its market clout and relevance. The experts’ conclusion is therefore clear: Deutsche Bank is the undisputed number one in IPOs in its home market Germany.
