The Haitian Relief Efforts of Deutsche Bank AG

July 30, 2012

Following the devastating Haitian earthquake of January 2010, Deutsche Bank AG aided the country as it recovered from the damage. On January 15, the firm announced that 100 percent of its Global Markets Equity group’s net U.S. agency commissions for one day would go toward relief and rebuilding efforts. Moreover, Deutsche Bank AG promised unlimited matching gifts from the money raised through the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation’s Matching Gifts Foundation. This endeavor received positive feedback from the bank’s clients and staff.

The company joined with AmeriCares, Doctors without Borders, and Partners in Health to provide emergency assistance to deal with the immediate aftermath. Concerned with the nation’s long-term solutions, the firm united with Habitat for Humanity International, Fondation Connaissance et Liberté, and other groups that offered guidance in re-establishing communities, creating jobs, and building houses.

During this program, Robert Karofsky was acting as Co-Head of Global Markets Equity at Deutsche Bank AG. In a 2010 interview, he expressed his gratitude to employees and clients who helped fund a far-reaching, long-lasting recovery effort. Today, Robert Karofsky serves as the Global Head of Equity Trading at AllianceBernstein L.P.
