The EnBW Bankers’ Day was held for the 13th time on 22 June 2016. The event took place at EnBW’s headquarters in Karlsruhe. This year EnBW welcomed more than 50 representatives from its core banks to inform them about current developments within the company and the energy sector.
Once again this year, Ingo Peter Voigt, Head of Finance, M&A and Investor Relations, was able to welcome the CEO as well as the CFO of EnBW as the main speakers. Dr. Frank Mastiaux made it clear that the main focus regarding EnBW’s strategy 2020 remain unchanged concentrating on growth initiatives, the implementation of further efficiency measures and the portfolio optimization of the company. Then CFO Thomas Kusterer explained the proposal of the nuclear commission for a sustainable financing of the nuclear phase-out in Germany, subsequently describing the importance of EnBW’s Asset Liability Management in this context. In connection with the growth initiatives intelligent forms of financing and participation models remain on top of the agenda.
In the afternoon the programme included a visit at EnBW’s Innovation Campus, also in Karlsruhe. A comprehensive overview was given of the innovation management and the related processes and working culture as well as the new venture approach of EnBW.
