Deutsche Bank chooses to base its largest investment banking operations in the City of London, a centre of global flows of trade and wealth. We use this position as a global bank to keep our UK clients connected to markets, and help clients do business all over the world.
Deutsche Bank employs over 8,000 people in the UK, and is one of the largest employers in the City. The backgrounds of our employees mirror London as a dynamic, global city: we have an international workforce of 100 nationalities at Deutsche.
Our clients are the companies and institutions the public comes into contact with every day. We are part of UK life, and our presence here is part of a long-term strategy that goes back 140 years. Deutsche Bank was founded in Berlin in 1870 to support the internationalisation of business and facilitate trade between Germany and overseas markets; the London branch was opened in 1873 as the first European office outside Germany.
So as well as covering the UK, our London office is an integral part of a global network of market knowledge and expertise, through which we can advise and support clients doing business all over the world.
