Against a backdrop of increasing globalization in the world economy, Deutsche Bank is very well-positioned, with significant regional diversification and substantial revenue streams from all the major regions of the world.  We serve our clients’ real economic needs in commercial banking, investment banking, private banking and asset management.  We are investing heavily in digital technologies, prioritizing long term success over short-term gains, and serving society with ambition and integrity. All this means a career packed with opportunities to grow and the chance to shape the future of our clients.

The Deutsche Bank graduate programme:

From the day you join Deutsche Bank, you’ll be working as part of a global team that is transforming the world of banking. Our development programme offers extensive training, exposure to stimulating projects, and the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills you need to provide innovative products and services to our clients. You’ll work alongside some of the industry’s top minds and build a valuable network that will support you as you progress in your career. You’ll be given various opportunities to not only have your opinions heard, but also get to make an impact at our company and for our clients. If you have the drive to succeed in the fast-paced financial services industry, Deutsche Bank is an exciting, supportive place for you to begin your career. 

About the business division: 

In 2017, Deutsche Bank announced its decision to undertake a partial initial public offering of Deutsche Asset Management, to unlock the full potential of the organisation for its clients and employees, while producing considerable returns for shareholders. On March 23, 2018, DWS was officially listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

As a fully integrated Asset Management business with strong client offerings across Alternatives, Active and Passive platforms, we can deliver the full breadth of these capabilities under a single global identity.

DWS has over 60 years of investment experience, offering retail, corporate and institutional clients a comprehensive set of strengths and capabilities that few competitors in the world can match.   

Division specifics about the graduate role 

Our Graduate Programme is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to help our world-class clients meet their various needs. You will build a broad knowledge base while honing your skills through four weeks of immersive classroom sessions with our best-in-class training providers.  

Your orientation will include an innovation project designed to develop entrepreneurial thinking in collaboration with a team of peers and a dedicated coach provided by the business. To support your induction into DWS, you will also have access to a buddy (typically a recent graduate who can provide practical support as you settle in to the business), and a dedicated mentor (an experienced people-manager who will support and coach you as you build your career in Asset Management). 

Upon completion of your training you will be working on our day-to-day business operations along with special projects where strong analytical skills and a deep interest in capital markets, investments and credits will be essential. You will undertake a series of rotations to broaden your exposure to the various facets of Asset Management, before being assigned permanently to one of the following divisions;  

  • Client Coverage
  • Alternatives
  • Traditional Asset Classes (Active, Passive, Trading)
  • Product  

Throughout the programme you will gain broad exposure at the heart of a progressive business and a thorough understanding of a range of areas including fixed income, equity and foreign exchange, emerging markets, exchange traded funds, and alternative investments.  

What we look for: 

We recruit highly intelligent graduates who are ambitious and adaptable. They have degrees in many different disciplines. Even though good levels of numeracy are important for some roles, you won’t necessarily need a formal mathematical or financial background. We have very comprehensive training programmes that will give you all the technical knowledge you’ll need to build a career with us. Above all, we are looking for entrepreneurial people who thrive best in a diverse culture where innovation and agile thinking abound. 

You should not only be passionate about the world of finance, but also show a keen interest in Asset Management. You will need to have a record of outstanding academic achievement and a desire to continue learning at the same intensive rate. In return, you will thrive on working in a highly collaborative environment with some of the best minds in Asset Management.
