Fitch Ratings has affirmed DWS Germany’s Investment Management Quality Rating at “Excellent”. The Outlook is Stable. According to Fitch, the rating affirmation is driven by the stability and strength of DWS’s core processes and resources. The formal separation from Deutsche Bank will, in Fitch Rating’s opinion, ultimately lead to more robust organisational structure benefitting from independence and strong financial backing – with substantial progress already achieved.
“I am pleased that Fitch Ratings continues to rate the quality of our Investment Management in Germany as excellent and in particular emphasizes the quality of our processes and the structure of our organization and employees as our key strengths”, said Claire Peel, Chief Financial Officer of DWS Group.
