We are a leading asset manager with € 662 billion in assets under management as at December 31, 2018. We are headquartered Frankfurt am Main / Germany but our approximately 3,400 full-time equivalents (FTEs) operate globally, providing a range of traditional and alternative investment capabilities to clients worldwide. We have a fully integrated global investment group, supported by our Chief Investment Office which supplies the overarching framework that guides our investment decisions. Our offerings span all major asset classes including equity, fixed income, cash and multi asset as well as alternative investments. Our alternative investments include real estate, infrastructure, private equity, liquid real assets and sustainable investments. We also offer a range of passive investments. In addition, our solution strategies are targeted to client needs that cannot be addressed by traditional asset classes alone. Such services include insurance and pension solutions, asset-liability management, portfolio management solutions, asset allocation advisory, structuring and overlay. Our product offerings are distributed across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the Americas and Asia-Pacific (APAC) through our single global distribution network comprising of approximately 880 investment professionals and 690 sales professionals across 15 countries.

On March 23, 2018, we successfully completed the partial Initial Public Offering (IPO) and listing of DWS KGaA on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, just a year after Deutsche Bank announced plans to float a minority stake.

Assets under Management (AuM) is defined as (a) assets held on behalf of customers for investment purposes and/or (b) client assets that are managed by us on a discretionary or advisory basis. AuM represents both collective investments (mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, etc.) and separate client mandates. AuM is measured at current market value based on the local regulatory rules for asset managers at each reporting date, which might differ from the fair value rules applicable under IFRS.
