Souad Benkredda

Management Board Member

DZ Bank, which is the second largest Bank in Germany.

I’m responsible for the capital markets business, which includes several exciting divisions, such as Sales & Trading, Group Treasury, and retail products.

I love that I can use my skills to make an impact together with the team. This could by helping clients with tailor-made solutions or by just coming up with new product ideas, also in the field of sustainability.

The exciting thing about my job as a Board member is that there is no typical day. Every day is different! Contact me to find out more.

I studied economics in Paris and in Frankfurt, where I completed a specialisation in financial engineering. After I started my first job as a graduate for Deutsche Bank on the Trading Floor in 2001, I was excited to see that I could use my STEM knowledge on a daily basis for my job. I loved working on the trading floor in Frankfurt, London, and Dubai for Deutsche Bank and, later on, in Dubai for Standard Chartered Bank. In 2022, I moved back to Germany to become a Board member to hopefully make a bigger impact in a broader field of topics.

I hope that I can inspire other girls to follow their dreams!

I love spending time with my daughters and read about non-bank related topics such as psychology, languages, and religion.
