DekaBank - part of the world's largest financial 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. The Bank owes its success to its staff's experience and commitment, and its firm foundations: DekaBank is firmly anchored within the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe. Being a 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: The savings banks are sole owners of DekaBank.
