About #Expedition150

We are launching a unique communication project to mark the 150th anniversary of Deutsche Bank: #Expedition150. Therefore a small team from the bank’s Communications department around former securities trader Jürgen Schmitt is busy filming short videos about trends that could bring major changes to the financial industry.

One major topic addressed is the current situation. The videos provide food for thought and answers to the question of what impact the coronavirus crisis may have on the sector and its clients. For example, they investigate how firms will obtain financing in future, which expectations clients might have for advice in future, how and where people will live in future – and what this all means for a bank.      

The objectives: to make new discoveries; to muse with stakeholders outside the traditional banking world on interesting business opportunities and at the same time show how Deutsche Bank is priming itself for the future. As the project aims to uncover exciting opportunities across the entire globe, Schmitt is using the hashtag #ConnectingWorlds to encourage Deutsche Bank colleagues from its main international locations to submit videos. Every Monday the bank will be showing one film on this website, and posting on its YouTube and LinkedIn channels.
