Even today, it is not talent but social origin which, in many cases, determines a person’s educational advancement. Deutsche Bank is strongly committed worldwide to equality of opportunity and the fair promotion of talent. In 2010 we launched “FairTalent”, an initiative that provides targeted individual assistance to underprivileged, but highly talented children. Deutsche Bank employees also serve as mentors to the young people taking part.
In order to intensify the exchange between the academic and business world, Deutsche Bank has established a chair of finance at Bocconi University in Milan and at the Luxembourg School of Finance. Moreover, we facilitated a new professorship at the House of Finance at Goethe University in Frankfurt and significantly increased our financial support for the European School of Management and Technology in Berlin.
