By setting up the new business division, comdirect aims to improve customer retention in its core business of direct brokerage and to tap new earnings potentials by realising additional commission income. The development of the investment banking division will commence on 1 December 2000, the date on which Dr. Andre Carls will start working for comdirect bank AG. Dr. Andre Carls was born in Krefeld, Germany, in 1963 and has been with Commerzbank AG since 1990. During this time, he has primarily worked in the bank's Syndicated loans and new issues, in the business fields Corporate Finance and Global Equities. From 1998 to 2000, Dr. Andre Carls was involved in setting up the investment banking department at the London branch office of Commerzbank.
