Strategy 2015+

Strategy 2015+ reflects Deutsche Bank’s dedication to high performance and responsibility. In 2014, Deutsche Bank again reinforced its commitment to its full-service banking model, home market and global presence. Five elements are key to delivering Strategy 2015+:

Clients

Our clients are at the center of everything we do. Only by providing sustainable benefits for them can we create sustainable value for our shareholders. We focus on our home market, Germany, the Asia Pacific region and the Americas.

Competencies

Our business is founded on the best people, best processes and consistent improvement. We provide high-quality advice and first-class service with absolute integrity and teamwork, including close collaboration across our corporate divisions and central functions.

Capital

We are committed to further strengthening our capital ratios, also by reducing risk-weighted assets, in order to establish a strong capital base and rigorous risk-adjusted capital allocation. Thereby we contribute to making the financial system more stable and secure.

Costs

We pursue disciplined cost management and promote consistent productivity gains by building outstanding infrastructure functions and eliminating duplication and organizational complexity.

Culture

We aim to be at the forefront of cultural change in our industry. We recognize the need for profound cultural change that places client relationships and integrity at the heart of all our initiatives. Creating incentives for sustainable performance helps us to live a culture that reflects society’s values and benefits all stakeholders.
