Corporate Banking and Asset Management

Deutsche Bank’s corporate banking and asset management divisions performed well in 2021. According to the bank, its asset management net revenues reached €656 million, which is up 17% YoY and the highest for seven quarters, driven primarily by a rise in management fees to the highest level for over six years. In terms of corporate banking, the overall revenues remained stable at €1.3 billion.

“Net inflows, together with a positive impact from currency movements, drove assets under management up by €21 billion to a record €880 billion. Since the third quarter of 2020, assets under management have grown by €121 billion including net inflows of €46 billion. For the first nine months, net revenues were up 18% to €1.9 billion while net inflows were €33 billion, including ESG net inflows of €13 billion,” the bank added in the announcement.
