Deutsche Beteiligungs AG has been publicly listed since 1985. It was one of the first companies admitted to the Prime Standard of the Deutsche Börse.

Access to the asset class of private equity is typically limited to investors in closed-end private equity funds. In addition to investing a substantial minimum amount, it requires committing capital for ten years or more. DBAG shares provide a further opportunity for investing in the attractive asset class of private equity – without a minimum investment and, since the shares can be traded on a daily basis, without tying up capital for an extended period of time. Our shareholders participate twofold: in the earnings we generate as an advisor to DBAG funds and in the value growth of our portfolio companies, which are not listed themselves.

Dividend policy

Shareholder participation in DBAG's success is one of our financial objectives. In the summer of 2016, we set out our dividend policy, and this still applies: We want to pay a stable dividend that increases whenever possible. 

On 28 February 2023, the Annual General Meeting approved the proposal of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board to distribute a dividend of 0.80 euros per share for the past financial year 2021/2022. The distribution corresponds to a dividend yield of 2.5 percent based on the annual average share price.
