Social Investments – creating opportunity

Social investments at Deutsche Bank take many forms from the activities of the Community Development Finance Group in the US to the Little Artist initiative in South Africa.

The issues faced by society across the world are as diverse as the solutions which is why we focus our efforts in the UK on those issues most visible and those most closely linked to our business.

Working with over 15 local delivery partners we invest the full breadth of our resources to help make a positive impact on some of the most important problems the UK society faces. These include addressing the issue of homelessness, supporting those furthest from the employment market return to work, working at grassroots level to grow communities from the bottom up and in 2010 we were able to kick-start our own Social Finance activities for the first time.

Throughout all of our work, regardless of the diversity of projects, there is one common theme, creating opportunities for those most in need whether they be homeless, unemployed or written off by everyone except our partners. Building the confidence and increasing their skills not only helps them, it also helps to build a thriving community and a prosperous economy from which we all can benefit.
