The bank for entrepreneurial families.

Business stage 'raising capital'

Taking your business to the next level


Whether you’re looking to go public, raise funds via private placements or debt, or explore other opportunities in the capital markets, the Bank for Entrepreneurs will give you access to Deutsche Bank’s corporate and investment banking expertise from a single point of contact. 


Perhaps it is time to sell shares in your business to fund your next growth stage – or because it makes sense to diversify your own holdings. Maybe you have found a target business for acquisition that can take your company into new markets – but to get there you will need debt financing. Whichever direction you are moving, the details of corporate finance have significant implications for your family’s wealth. A shift in the ownership structure of a business can be a complex procedure, and we can guide you through it.


From selling shares to issuing debt to growth through acquisitions


Taking a company public is an important step for many businesses, both in the terms of its own growth and the shape of your family’s investment portfolio. Because we have a footprint in all major financial centres, our equity capital markets team is well positioned to take your business to market, issue a secondary offering, or secure a private placement. We can walk you through the complete range of products available to identify the best one for your situation.


Another critical milestone can be when your business has matured to the point that you want to approach debt markets for the capital to buy out another company, fund your own growth initiatives, or recapitalize after a period of heavy investment. 


Our bankers can leverage their deep knowledge and international presence to identify the right type of debt for your circumstance, structure a loan, or take a merger transaction across the finish line – whether it is with a local competitor or an adjacent business in another country. 

Corporate Finance

Buying or selling a business is rarely straightforward. We can connect you with experts from across the Deutsche Bank Group to support you through this process.

In Europe, Middle East and Africa as well as in Asia Pacific this material is considered marketing material, but this is not the case in the U.S. No assurance can be given that any forecast or target can be achieved. Forecasts are based on assumptions, estimates, opinions and hypothetical models which may prove to be incorrect. Past performance is not indicative of future returns. Performance refers to a nominal value based on price gains/losses and does not take into account inflation. Inflation will have a negative impact on the purchasing power of this nominal monetary value. Depending on the current level of inflation, this may lead to a real loss in value, even if the nominal performance of the investment is positive. Investments come with risk. The value of an investment can fall as well as rise and you might not get back the amount originally invested at any point in time. Your capital may be at risk.
