Deutsche Bank

It is a German multinational company that offers banking and financial services in most countries of the world. It is perhaps the most important bank in Germany. It is responsible for corporate, commercial, investment, and private banking.


The bank originated in 1870 to establish several businesses in national and international trade. That was because, at that time, the institutions depended on English and French banks to carry out their international operations. It received his banking license that same year by the Prussian government. It was founded by Georg Siemens, Adelbert Delbrück, and Ludwig Bamberger.

As of 1871, it began to expand both nationally and internationally. Its first branches were in Bremen and Hamburg and later, in Shanghai, London, and countries of the Latin American continent. During those years, it continued to establish branches nationally and bought Berliner Bank-Verein and Deutsche UnionBank. In 1886, it participated in the founding of Deutsche Ueberseeische Bank.

After the war, there were losses in the bank. The institution was forced to merge with other local banks and not disappear. As a result, the Deutsche Bank und DiscontoGesellschaft was created in 1929. This allowed the entity to overcome the post-war economic crisis.

It had to manage the Bohemian Union Bank, Bankverein, National Bank of Greece, Creditanstalt – Bankverein, Deutsch-Bulgarische Kreditbank, and Banca Comercială Română during World War II.

When the second war ended, it was time to rebuild. The bank had been forced to separate into ten regional banking institutions, and these, in turn, into three including Norddeutsche Bank AG, Süddeutsche Bank AG, and Rheinisch-Westfälische Bank AG. Those three banks merged to form Deutsche Bank AG based in Frankfurt (as today).

In the following years, the bank established several branches to continue expanding internationally in London, Tokyo, Paris, Brussels, Antwerp, New York, Hong Kong, Milan, Madrid, and many more.
