DekaBank is the German Savings Bank Finance Group's central asset manager. We claim to be the first choice for savings banks, Landesbanken and other network partners, offering the right product for each client. To live up to this claim, day in, day out, we have 4,000 people throughout the group working on ideas and products for our clients, building on the depth of knowledge acquired over ninety years in the capital and equity markets.
First Choice for the Worlds Largest Finance Combine
DekaBank's roots date back to the year 1918, when Deutsche Girozentrale (DGZ) was founded. Deka as an investment company was founded in 1956; DGZ and Deka joined forces to create DekaBank in 1999. With managed fund assets of about € 160 billion, approximately four million customer deposits and group locations in Luxembourg and Switzerland, the DekaBank Group is one of the largest asset managers in Germany.
The Bank owes its success to its staff's experience and commitment, and its firm foundations: being part of the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe. Being a permanent part of the world's largest financial combine means we can each do what we do best, with DekaBank creating funds centrally and savings banks serving customers locally. This combine principle is also reinforced by our ownership structure: savings banks sole owners of DekaBank.
Three Business Divisions, One Central Sales Unit
To provide the best possible service to the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe and its customers, our activities are bundled in three business divisions, plus a central sales unit:
Asset Management Capital Markets
Asset Management Property
Corporates & Markets
Savings Banks Sales
We also have twelve Corporate Centres for internal services in all. This organisation is designed to make business processes leaner to bring us even closer to our customers.
