Participation.

Not speculation

Germans are very attached to their passbooks and instant-access or fixed-term savings accounts, but tend to steer clear of shares and other securities. This is an issue because such traditional forms of investment do not provide high enough returns in the current low interest rate environment. That means investors lose money every day – money that could otherwise be used to pay for large purchases or be put towards a pension. But investments in securities also play an important role in the economy, and for the wider society, because they make a major contribution to funding companies or infrastructure. Increasing the use of forms of saving that involve securities is therefore not just in customers’ interests, but also makes a significant contribution to society as a whole. It therefore makes perfect sense that Deka and the savings banks share a commitment to them.

Financial Report

The Deka Group continues to press ahead with its transformation into the Wertpapierhaus. Improvements in key business, financial and risk indicators are clear signs that the changes are already bearing fruit.
