About the Department

Deutsche Bank AG (“DB” or “Bank”) has established the Controls Testing & Assurance department (“CT&A”) as an independent function, reporting to the Chief Administrative Officer (“CAO”). This group was formed from the legacy Testing and Quality Assurance group in Anti-Financial Crime (“AFC”) and the legacy Compliance Testing group in Compliance (“Compliance”). CT&A performs core regulatory prescribed processes for and on behalf of the Bank for AFC and Compliance. The establishment of CT&A as a separate and discrete function within the CAO Office raises its stature and profile at the Bank. CT&A is organizationally independent, not only, from the businesses and other infrastructure groups such as Risk, Operations, but from AFC and Compliance. The head of CT&A has a direct reporting line into the CAO, who is the Management Board Member of the Bank, who has responsibility for, among other things, Legal, AFC and Compliance. As CT&A performs regulatory-mandated processes for and on behalf of the AFC and Compliance functions, there are protocols (the “protocol”) that set out the overarching principles for and the interactions between CT&A on the one hand, and AFC and Compliance, respectively.

Further, the Regulation, Compliance and Anti-Financial Crime (AFC) protect the integrity and reputation of Deutsche Bank. They manage the Bank’s risks and help to avoid unintentional rule breaches and conflicts of interest. At the same time, they also advise on ethical conduct, governance issues and keep our organisation up-to-date on regulatory and political challenges.

AFC’s Mission is:

  • To be a trusted and respected independent control function that aims to protect the bank from financial crime risk.
  • To establish a proactive framework to prevent, detect, investigate and report bank-wide financial crime risk events
