Our business model combines several sources of income. It is based on sustainable income from the management of our Commercial Portfolio and recurring management income from a broad range of services for third parties (Institutional Business), supplemented by equity returns from our structured investments.
Generating income streams from two complementary segments ensures continuous profitability and enables us to exploit opportunities with maximum independence from market cycles.There are strong synergies between both segments on our platform:
Combining the financial and balance sheet structure of a portfolio holder with the management expertise of an active asset manager enables us to exploit market opportunities quickly and flexibly while at the same time ensuring exceptional reliability and providing full-service solutions across all phases of the value chain.
Born of conviction, experience and the knowledge that our work reflects on us, DIC‘s success is a special team effort that combines our individual strengths:
Reliability, creativity and speed.
It’s what we call: dynamic performance.
Reliability and trustworthiness represent the core values of our corporate culture. They are based not just on strict adherence to statutory and contractual rules, but on a basic understanding of ethical behaviour. This includes openness, fairness and tolerance, conservation of resources, equal opportunity across gender lines, and the promotion of diversity while following clear guidelines and helping to manage threats and potential conflicts.
