Background 2013 EU-wide Transparency Exercise
In May 2013 the EBA adjusted the timeline of the next EU-wide stress test so to conduct the exercise in 2014 once the asset quality reviews are completed. However, to ensure transparency and comparability over the years, the EBA’s Board of Supervisors (BoS) decided to provide, in the second half of 2013, appropriate disclosure on the actual exposures of the EU banking sector. In its October meeting the BoS agreed on the form and scope of the transparency exercise to be conducted in November/December 2013 to assure a sufficient and appropriate level of information for market participants. The sample of the exercise includes 64 banks and for each of them the following set of information was collected for disclosure:
II. Credit Risk
III. Securitisation Summary
IV. Market Risk
V. Exposures to sovereigns
VI. Risk-weighted Assets (RWA)

This release contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts; they include statements about our beliefs and expectations and the assumptions underlying them. These statements are based on plans, estimates and projections as they are currently available to the management of Deutsche Bank. Forward-looking statements therefore speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update publicly any of them in light of new information or future events.
By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. A number of important factors could therefore cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Such factors include the conditions in the financial markets in Germany, in Europe, in the United States and elsewhere from which we derive a substantial portion of our revenues and in which we hold a substantial portion of our assets, the development of asset prices and market volatility, potential defaults of borrowers or trading counterparties, the implementation of our strategic initiatives, the reliability of our risk management policies, procedures and methods, and other risks referenced in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Such factors are described in detail in our SEC Form 20-F of 15 April 2013 under the heading “Risk Factors”.
