Research must be independent. As an independent division we report directly to the Board of Managing Directors and are not subject to instructions from the responsible persons in trading and sales.

Research must be transparent and objective. When preparing analyses and deriving recommendations we use scientifically-recognised quantitative methods.

The expertise of DZ BANK Research as Germany’s largest securities research unit is reflected in the large number of awards for share analysts and top scores for fixed income and macro research from institutional customers. This expertise is based on the knowhow and experience of our highly-qualified employees and the pooling of all research activities in a single unit with a clear organisational and work structure.

And research must be near to the customer. We communicate intensively with our customers and constantly optimise our services with regard to customer requirements.
