The Deutsche Bank has emerged as one of the leading banks in the region offering a range of quality services.
In April 2006, Deutsche Bank’s presence was established in the Kingdom with the opening of a branch in the capital city of Riyadh.
The branch is regulated by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA) and operates under a full commercial banking license.
A second entity, Deutsche Securities Saudi Arabia LLC (DSSA), was incorporated in December 2007. DSSA is regulated by the Capital Market Authority and is licensed to carry out securities business. Deutsche Bank Saudi Arabia offers the full range of investment banking, asset and wealth management, and global transaction banking services.
Deutsche Bank Saudi Arabia is well recognized for its leading role on some of the most prestigious domestic transactions, and is the recipient of several regional awards in recognition for its achievements in investment banking and Islamic finance.
Recently in 2013, Deutsche Bank Saudi Arabia received “Global Deal of the Year” award from Project Finance Magazine, in addition to the “Most Innovative Deal of the year” from Euromoney Islamic Finance Awards.
Deutsche Bank Saudi Arabia’s core businesses include Corporate Banking and Securities (CB & S), which combines the sales, trading and structuring of a wide range of financial market products.
These products include bonds, equities and equity-linked products, exchange traded and over-the-counter derivatives, foreign exchange, money market instruments, securitized instruments and commodities while also serving treasury related solutions to clients through treasury sales and corporate banking coverage.
Also, CB&S is responsible for mergers and acquisitions, including advisory; debt and equity issuance; and capital markets coverage of Sovereign entities, Financial Institutions and large corporations. Country-focused teams ensure the delivery of the entire range of financial products and services to clients.
On the other hand, the Global Transaction Banking (GTB) serves financial institutions and corporates globally by effectively managing their commercial banking needs. GTB’s range of services in the Kingdom includes domestic and cross-border payments, trade finance and the provision of trust and securities services.
As a global bank, Deutsche Bank has an in-depth knowledge of all relevant markets, as well as placing state-of-the-art technologies at the disposal of its clients. Indeed, as one of the world’s leading providers of transaction banking services, Deutsche Bank offers an end-to-end service to support national and international transaction banking needs.
The bank can also boast of world-class Asset and Wealth Management (AWM) services. Offering a wide range of traditional and alternative investment products, AWM helps private and institutional investors to secure and increase their wealth.

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management joins together all of Deutsche Bank’s wealth and asset management capabilities to offer a comprehensive selection of world-class products and solutions. These are supplied in a streamlined, client-centric coverage model.
Deutsche Bank’s success derives primarily from the performance, passion and commitment of its people, who perform and lend expertise to furthering the company’s interests.
In Saudi Arabia, Deutsche Bank is deeply committed to the national initiative of Saudization by fostering and encouraging local talents as it invests in the professional and personal skills of its local staff.
Furthermore, the bank’s Saudi-based team is seamlessly integrated into the global Deutsche Bank network to ensure that the group’s Saudi-based clients are provided with the highest expertise and execution levels that it is able to deliver anywhere.
The global focus of Deutsche Bank’s social responsibility is reflected in its regional units and foundations.
Through its Middle East Foundations, Deutsche Bank continues to bring Deutsche Bank’s unparalleled global commitment to the Saudi community. This is done by supporting local NGOs and charities to build social capital by creating opportunities, fostering talent and ensuring long-term viability.
The bank’s initiatives include partnering with Al-Holailah Charity Society to support its Humanitarian Rehabilitating and Training Center in Al-Ahsa in the eastern province of the Kingdom in 2014.
It also organized an Eid Party for the children of Bunyan Association in 2013, besides supporting the Intellectual Education Institute for Girls in East Riyadh by hosting an art exhibition and purchasing a communication device for the institute in 2012.
It also parterned with Edge of Arabia to showcase Saudi Arabia’s leading contemporary artists in a two-month exhibition in Turkey in 2010.
Moreover, the Deutsche Bank is passionate about growing its franchise in the Kingdom through delivering optimal solutions to its clients, bringing leading financial know-how onshore and training Saudi nationals in all facets of the industry.
