"We have used the past two years to get the Bank back into shape. Now we are making money again", said Herbert Walter, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors of Dresdner Bank, presenting the earnings figures for the year in Frankfurt. Walter is also confident for the current fiscal year: "We want to generate a return on equity of almost nine percent after taxes in 2005, despite the difficult ongoing economic environment, and thus earn our costs of capital within the Allianz Group". Walter continued: "Our âNew Dresdner Plusâ Programme will allow us to drive forward our operating business and create sustained value. With it, we are now moving on to profitable growth."
