#01 Profitable business model

A unique combination of a bank and an IT company.


Fit for the future

Aareal Bank Group has performed extremely successfully in recent years. The financial year 2017 saw us strengthen our market position yet again and achieve our ambitious goals. Our business model, which comprises the Structured Property Financing and Consulting/Services segments, offers clients a unique combination of banking and IT services.


We developed our "Aareal 2020" programme for the future to ensure we continue this successful path in the digital age. On the one hand it aims to structure our organisation and processes not just to keep pace with growing and rapidly changing requirements but to actually allow us to help shape the changes (Adjust). On the other hand, our goal with "Aareal 2020" is to enhance our existing product and service portfolio – while at the same time focusing consistently on our clients – by tapping into new markets and client groups, and therefore unlocking new revenue potential (Advance). The overarching goal of this programme is to add value sustainably for our clients, investors and staff both now and in future (Achieve).


Additional information about our performance in the financial year and our "Aareal 2020" programme for the future can be found in our Annual Report.
