Recent strategy pronouncements from members of the Deutsche Bank Vorstand that the bank intends to concentrate on Europe amount to a statement of intent to play to the bank's obvious existing strengths. Its strategy in dealing with corporate and investing institutions across Europe has been to become the dominant provider of Deutschmark services - be that in foreign exchange or bonds - and to attempt to be the first-choice foreign bank counterparty in the customer's home currency. The intention is to parley this into a position as the dominant bank in euroland.

In wholesale markets, the bank has clearly benefited from the build-up of Deutsche Morgan Grenfell (DMG) over the past three years. It is the leading European foreign-exchange bank and second overall behind the ever dominant Citibank. It claims top position as lead underwriter of bonds in the euro constituent currencies, as well as being a leading trader of European government bonds.
