Deutsche Bank wins through in Euromoney's trade finance survey

Its strong performance in Euromoney’s trade finance survey – despite its recent difficulties – has left some rivals scratching their heads. What lies behind its high placing?


Euromoney’s most recent trade finance survey results have upset some bankers following the surprise success of Deutsche Bank. But dig down into the results and the reasons for its resilient performance start to emerge.

The German bank moved from third to second place in Euromoney’s quantitative results globally, while maintaining its position of second place in the survey’s qualitative (customer satisfaction) results. Deutsche came second to HSBC in the quantitative results and to UniCredit in the qualitative results.

Regionally, Deutsche came top in Asia Pacific and Western Europe in the quantitative results and first in North America for customer satisfaction.

Turbulent past

The bank’s lofty position in Euromoney’s trade finance survey comes despite its recent struggles, including weak financial results, regulatory entanglements and cost cutting.
