Deutsche Bank awarded Derivatives House of the Year by Risk magazine

Risk, the financial risk management magazine, has selected Deutsche Bank for its top annual honour, Derivatives House of the Year, marking the third time that the Bank has received this honour since 2003.

In selecting Deutsche Bank for the honour, the magazine’s editors cited the Bank’s recalibration strategy and client focus, and said: “Key to the performance was the new focus on institutional client flow business.”
Commenting on the honour, Anshu Jain, Head of the Corporate & Investment Bank, said: “In 2010, we faced the dual challenge of embarking upon the further integration of our corporate and investment bank while serving clients in a volatile market. Risk’s recognition reflects our success in connecting, streamlining and growing our business. We are grateful to our clients, shareholders and employees for their support.”

Risk’s honour follows citations made in December 2010, when International Financing Review (IFR) magazine named Deutsche Bank as its Bank of the Year and Derivatives House of the Year.
