Cooperation, confidence and practice-oriented solutions

German Sparkassenstiftung's work is guided by three principles: partnership-based cooperation in a spirit of mutual trust; the transfer of key success factors from the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe and the implementation of practice-oriented solutions.

Partnership-based cooperation

Counterpart institutions are not perceived as clients but as partners. By engaging in a spirit of mutual trust, German Sparkassenstiftung Jordan promotes their sustainable development and works with partners to build up long-term professional relationships.

Key success factors

German Sparkassenstiftung for International Cooperation (DSIK) is an implementing agency of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and aims to increase access, usage, and quality of financial services worldwide. Currently, German Sparkassenstiftung is successfully engaged in more than 50 countries. In the course of their 200-year history, German Sparkassenstiftung have evolved into the most successful financial group in the German banking sector and they have transfered their knowledge and success factors – adapted to suit local conditions – around the world.

Practical solutions

German Sparkassenstiftung for International Cooperation owes its success to the expertise and practical experience of the people employed in the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe. Together with local experts trained by Sparkassenstiftung, practitioners channel their state-of-the-art knowledge into the design of customised solutions and assist their partner institutions to implement them. Besides making for a high degree of acceptance, this approach also secures project success over the longer term.
