As Deutsche Bank celebrates its 35th anniversary of being in the Channel Islands, Mark Hirst, Chief Executive of the Deutsche Bank Offshore Group, discusses how putting people at the centre of everything the Bank does is the key to its success.
For Deutsche Bank, 2007 is proving to be another busy year. It began with some excellent news for us, with Euromoney naming Deutsche Bank as the Best Private Bank in the Channel Islands in their annual Private Banking survey. This was obviously a massive boost for us, a credit to the incredibly hard work of all our staff and testament to how far Deutsche Bank has come in the 35 years it has been in Jersey and Guernsey.
The Offshore Group’s presence in Jersey and Guernsey began when two offices were established in 1972. Since then, the size of the Bank’s operations in the islands has grown considerably. Our Offshore Group also has operations in Mauritius and Grand Cayman and we now employ nearly 400 people worldwide; as such we form an important part of Deutsche Bank’s global business. Given that it is our 35th anniversary year, it is particularly fitting that Deutsche Bank’s work ethic and quality of service in the Channel Islands should be recognized by Euromoney this year – evidence that what we are doing is right. At the very core of our work is the idea that all of our clients are treated as individual people. That way we can appreciate fully their objectives and their concerns – and then develop appropriate solutions designed to match their personal specifications. We take this personal approach for both Private Clients and the Intermediary and Institutional businesses that we support. Our work is undoubtedly aided by the way in which the Channel Islands embrace the concept of offshore finance. The Channel Islands are undergoing a changing image and are now at the very forefront of international finance.
