of share ownership
Deutsche Bank shares remain almost entirely in free float. Around 99 % of the bank’s shareholders were private investors. BlackRock, Inc., New York, which holds 5.14 % of Deutsche Bank’s shares, is the only large shareholder whose holdings are subject to the statutory reporting threshold of 3 %. The number of shareholders decreased to 566,979 during the course of 2013 (2012: 610,964).
The share of capital held by private investors was 21 % at the end of 2013 (2012: 25 %). Institutional investors held 79 % (2012: 75 %) of the bank’s total share capital of € 2,609,919,078.40. Total share capital held in Germany increased to 50 % during the course of the year (2012: 45 %). This is mainly a technical effect, as one large institutional investor transferred the custody of its shareholdings from abroad to Germany.
