Dear financial advisors, commercial lawyers, insurance brokers and colleagues, Berlin’s finance & insurance industry includes all the professions that deal with financial services. These include investing assets, arranging insurance and implementing everyday transactions.
17 credit institutions have their headquarters in Berlin, including Berliner Volksbank, Sparda-Bank Berlin and Norisbank – all potential employers. There are also several branches of major credit institutions here, such as Deutschen Bank and Commerzbank, as well as five subsidiaries of foreign banks. Currently, over 6,000 colleagues work at Landesbank Berlin, over 4,000 colleagues in Deutsche Bank branches and over 2,000 colleagues at the Berlin branches of Commerzbank.
The capital’s financial centre is the Berlin Mitte district, the former banking centre. The administrative quarter is also located in Mitte. Due to it being the seat of government, many leading banking organisations are based in Berlin, such as the Association of German Banks, the German Savings Banks Association (DSGV) and the Association of German Public Banks.
