Such information is marked by a bracket in the margins throughout this section.
The sections on qualitative and quantitative risk disclosures provide a comprehensive view on the risk profile of Deutsche Bank Group. The quantitative information generally reflects Deutsche Bank Group including Postbank for the reporting dates December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, or for the respective reporting periods starting December 3, 2010.
