Highlights 2012

Profit target achieved in operating terms. comdirect has demonstrated the stability of its business model in a challenging market environment. Although we invested more in growth in 2012 and net commission income was significantly down on the record level in 2011, with steady net interest income we achieved our profit target with €92.3m.

Dividend. We want our shareholders to participate appropriately in comdirect’s good performance. We will be proposing a dividend of €0.44 per share to the annual general meeting in Hamburg on 16 May 2013. This produces a strong dividend yield of 5.6% for 2012.

More convenient payments. Our fee-free Visa card with payWave function and SMS info service makes paying by credit card more convenient and secure. As a result of weekly debiting, we also grant our customers a short-term credit facility. In online shopping, the giropay system simplifies the payment process.

Faster trading. comdirect’s mobile app means customers always have their custody accounts within easy reach. On the website, active traders additionally benefit from realtime prices, which are available free of charge and automatically displayed in the new domestic order mask. The CFD platform facilitates even faster trading direct from the improved real-time charts.

Better advisory services. Building finance advice is now set to be even more personal as a result of the video function piloted in 2012. In future, customers will not just be able to see the product offerings on their adviser’s screen, but will be able to see their adviser in person via video link.

Standardised management. With the ebase Managed Depot custody account, our B2B partners can offer their customers standardised fund asset management with five different investment strategies – without the management burden or liability risks.
