Our values

At HypoVereinsbank, we act along three values: Integrity, Ownership and Caring.

We place these values at the center of all our decisions and are guided by them as a team and as a trustworthy partner for our customers, investors, and stakeholders. 

Our culture

Our values are more than just words – they are a common belief, that unites us and guides us in our actions. With this we are able to achieve our purpose „Empowering Communities to Progress“.
A successful future can only be shaped with the right culture. In this regard, our values guide us – on both large and small scales.

We act in the best interest of our customers. We are honest, straightforward, and transparent. We do the right thing - even when no one is watching.

We deliver on our promises and take accountability for our actions and commitments. We are empowered to make decisions and learn from failure. We speak up – to express an idea, an opinion or when we see something wrong.

Together, we care for our customers, society, and each other. We treat each other with respect, show consideration for each other and are eager to help each other to thrive.

Our purpose

As a part of the UniCredit Group, HypoVereinsbank is committed to promote the potential of its employees and motivating them to strive for excellence. With our customers, shareholders, communities, and employees in mind, we share a common purpose:
Empowering Communities to Progress.

Our employees

Our culture is shaped daily by all our employees. Moreover, we have established specific roles and networks at HypoVereinsbank to drive the topic forward:

Culture Network Germany

Managers and employees work together to develop cultural initiatives and act as multipliers for our corporate values in all divisions of the bank.

Culture Sponsor

In this role, our CEO Marion Höllinger acts as the top management representative for the culture topic and promotes local as well as global initiatives.

“For our culture change we need all employees to shape and multiply it. We all drive the change of our culture by living our values – actively and transparently. “
