Frankfurt, 04/13/2022 – With a 40% increase in net interest income and a 39% rise in net fee and commission income, and a profit after tax of EUR 46 million, Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe closed the past fiscal year on a very encouraging note. The closing of the acquisition of Bankhaus Lampe KG, which was announced in the previous year, took place with the approvals of the regulatory authorities on October 01, 2021.

The past fiscal year was dominated by preparations for the long-awaited merger with Bankhaus Lampe, which took place on January 01, 2022. In particular, the Asset Servicing business area - with high inflows thanks to the unbroken trend in alternative assets - and the Investment Banking business area - with an exceptionally high number of capital market transactions - had a record year. With the merger of the two houses, the product range in Private & Corporate Banking and Asset Management was once again significantly expanded thanks to the now significant size. 

Key figures:

  • Assets under Service & Management increased to EUR 230 billion at the end of the financial year.
  • The core capital ratio is 14.5%.
  • Net interest income increased by EUR 13 million year-on-year to EUR 45.5 million in the reporting year, while net fee and commission income developed well above plan to EUR 231.0 million, compared with EUR 165.8 million in the previous year.
  • Taking into account the additions resulting from the acquisition of Bankhaus Lampe KG, the Group's total assets amount to EUR 11,760.5 million.
  • General administrative expenses increased by EUR 115.1 million year-on-year to EUR 276.7 million.

Michael Bentlage, CEO of Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe, says: "With this result, we have laid an excellent foundation for the upcoming tasks of our bank and at the same time see this as a confirmation by our customers of the quality of our product and service offering."

In addition to the technical integration of Bankhaus Lampe, work will continue in the coming fiscal year on implementing the strategy defined in 2020. This includes organic growth in all business areas using new technologies and the expansion of the product range, particularly in the area of digital assets and asset management.
