Disclosures according to Section 16 InstitutsVergV (Ordinance on Supervisory Requirements for Remuneration Systems of Institutions)
The scope of the disclosure requirements is determined by the size and structure of the institution and the risk content and internationality of its business activities while preserving the materiality, protection and confidentiality principle of Article 432 (1) to (3) of Regulation (EU) No. 575/2013 (CRR Regulation). Since the balance sheet total is below € 15 billion, we are restricting ourselves to a few basic remarks in our presentation of the remuneration system.

The salaries of our managers comprise a fixed remuneration as well as variable remuneration components. The institute pursues an ambitious approach with the variable remuneration for the managers. It enables variable remuneration to make an important contribution to the achievement of corporate objectives.

Depending on the financial situation of the institute, the variable remuneration can be reduced to zero.

In order to avoid negative incentives for the managers to incur disproportionately high risks due to an excessive dependency on the variable remuneration, there is an upper limit for the variable remuneration as measured by the fixed remuneration components of 100%.

The managers' salaries correspond to customary market levels of remuneration and the situation of the institute.

The remuneration of the institute’s directors is determined by the supervisory body (shareholders' meeting).

All employees receive only fixed salaries reflecting standard levels in this sector. No bonus payments have been agreed.
