The foundation of Deutsche Bank

Today, Deutsche Bank is a major international bank, placed in the top 25 global banks. However, it was formed in Berlin in 1870 to promote and finance German exports. These specialist beginnings led to the creation of one of Germany’s largest banks, after many years of growth and diversification. In the early years, Deutsche Bank was heavily involved with financing German industry. This placed it at the forefront of the country’s economy, helping it to become the powerhouse of Europe. Major industrial names like Bayer (chemicals) and Krupp (steel) were financed by Deutsche Bank. With the opening of a London branch in 1873, Deutsche Bank was well on the way to becoming a fully-connected international bank.

The banking crisis of the early 20th century hit German banking hard, and Deutsche Bank was affected just as badly as other banks. The paralyzation of the German economy helped to contribute to the extreme regime changes of the 1930s and 40s, and the subsequent war. Every element of the German economy was mobilised during World War II, and Deutsche Bank was no different.

In the post-war period, Deutsche Bank was broken up into 10 regional German banks. However, it was able to successfully form an investment banking group, which performed well internationally. Deutsche Bank supported the financial investments of Donald Trump in the 1990s, when other banks refused to do business with him. Deutsche Bank was able to weather the 2008 crisis better than many other banks, but still received nearly $12 billion from the US Government to help stabilise the economy. Today, Deutsche Bank offers an impressive array of wealth management and investment services for discerning individuals.
