Deutsche Bank: Best Bank Treasury Management Team Europe 2017

Buoyed by strong support from institutional investors, Deutsche Bank is now ready to strengthen its investment bank and bolster its retail business in Germany. Deutsche Bank also aims to expand its presence in North America.

One of the largest foreign exchange dealers in the world with a market share estimated to hover around 20%, Deutsche Bank is a globe-spanning financial services provider with a footprint covering more than seventy countries. As such, the Treasury Department of Deutsche Bank faces a number of significant challenges for building capital and ensuring liquidity across a bewildering array of currencies. Add to that the need to comply with legislation in multiple jurisdictions, and the magnitude of the task may be appreciated.

Yet, Deutsche Bank has deftly managed to leverage its expertise in treasury operations to fortify its position in the wake of the financial crisis which hit the bank particularly hard. Deutsche Bank was able to reclaim the strong capital position which underpinned its reputation for well over a century. The bank has also recognised that prioritising its domestic position – pursuing synergies with Deutsche Postbank it acquired in 2010 – is an essential first step towards international expansion since such an approach solidifies Deutsche Bank’s foundations.

The CFI.co judging panel commends Deutsche Bank on its resilience and determination to extract the most from its technical expertise in treasury management. The judges are pleased to offer Deutsche Bank the 2017 Best Bank Treasury Management Team Europe Award.
