The experts in German corporate banking
Any claim of expertise needs to be supported by evidence. So we will begin with a fact. Today, Commerzbank is the market leader in German foreign trade: In 2014, no other bank settled more foreign letters of credit opened in favour of German exporters.
Born to trade
Founded in Hamburg in 1870, business banking has been in our DNA ever since. As global banking developed, we were at the forefront of pioneering innovative financial instruments and new technology. Today, our corporate banking services cover everything from derivatives and foreign currency to cash management, liquidity planning and risk management.
Business is personal
Key to our success is our personal Relationship Manager concept. This involves appointing one person to oversee all your corporate banking activities. He or she is your single point of contact and liaises between different departments, branches and countries, as necessary. Your Relationship Manager also acts as your adviser in ensuring that we provide you with the services you need to match the specific circumstances of your business and the different markets in which you operate.
Close personal cooperation is a key feature of the support we provide our corporate clients. Through our large network of branches across Germany and our thousands of corporate clients, we have intimate knowledge of every area of the German market. We use this expertise to give our clients agility in the marketplace, protect their liquidity and manage their risk exposure.
The fact that many of our client relationships stretch back decades is one reason behind the many awards we have won. These include client surveys as well as awards from specialist business publications and independent financial bodies.
For a UK business targeting the German domestic market, no single bank can offer a more comprehensive and expert corporate banking service than Commerzbank.
