IBB 2022 – strong result in a difficult environment
Friedrichshafen – 22.05.2023 – Internationale Bankhaus Bodensee AG (IBB), a highly specialised niche bank for medium-sized companies and discerning private clients, closed the 2022 financial year with a strong result. Some of the key figures are significantly higher than in the previous year, and the operating result before taxes was also maintained at EUR 18.0 million despite the difficult environment.
Successful year despite difficult general conditions
The general economic conditions with the dominant topic of the Ukraine war, but also the consequences of the pandemic, the increase in energy prices and, above all, the rise in interest rates for the first time in over a decade, influenced both companies and private investors. The bank’s four business divisions – Corporate Clients, Commercial Real Estate Clients, Private Banking and Sports Finance – nevertheless operated successfully. The planned net profit for 2022 was achieved and even slightly increased compared to 2021.

Bankhaus am Bodensee plays in the Champions League
Internationale Bankhaus Bodensee AG (IBB) in Friedrichshafen is not a low-cost provider, which is why the institute has positioned itself as a niche player from the very beginning. One of the mainstays on which the bank, which is part of the Würth Group, now relies is the financing of top European soccer clubs.
Change of Management Board in successful times
Change of management board at IBB: As of July 16, Stephan Waiblinger and Heike Kemmner will form the management duo of the private bank, which looks back on a successful 2021.
There is a little bit of IBB
in very FC Porto victory
Head of Sports Finance Department
Receiving an award is always something special. But to be presented the Golden Dragon 2021 as Partner of the Year by the president of 30-time Portuguese champions FC Porto is a very exceptional honor.
IBB board member Heike Kemmner and department head Robert Brehm accepted the award at the Estádio do Dragão.
“For some years now, FC Porto’s victories have always had a bit of IBB” as Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa put it, is a praise and appreciation that is very, very rare to receive as a bank, and one that fills everyone at the bank with great pride.
The arrival of the Golden Dragon 2021 in Friedrichshafen was celebrated accordingly.

The somewhat different bank
Member of the Board
For twenty years, Internationale Bankhaus Bodensee AG (IBB) in Friedrichshafen has combined traditional and sustainable banking with new, innovative financial solutions. However, IBB is not what is commonly thought of as a “bank”…
“Everything you associate with a bank, we don’t embody,” explains Heike Kemmner, a member of IBB’s Board of Management. The classic “day-to-day business” such as checking accounts and money transactions does not exist within IBB.
This is because there are already enough other good providers for this type of banking: be it the savings banks and Volksbanks or the big players, such as Deutsche Bank.
“Here’s to what’s coming.”

Press release for fiscal year 2020
In its annual report, IBB looks back on a challenging time
Friedrichshafen – 20.05.2021 – Internationale Bankhaus Bodensee AG (IBB) is fully on course even in these challenging times. The private bank headquartered in Friedrichshafen looks back on a good year. “Despite more challenging general conditions, the planned result was almost achieved,” summarize the Management Board members Heike Kemmner and Joachim Mei 2020. Hard work and crisis-proof business relationships were the basis for the two board members “in a year that pushed everyone to their limits”.
As almost always in IBB’s 25-year history, a targeted niche strategy led to success. This made it possible to end the year very positively, even though it was dominated by the Covid 19 pandemic. At €15.8 million, operating profit before taxes was only slightly below the pre-Corona target of €16.6 million. It was already clear to everyone involved in the planning stage that the extraordinary year 2019 would be hard to top. Nevertheless, a surplus of 5.1 million euros was again reported.
Private banking that feels good
From the press
As a member of the Executive Board of Internationales Bankhaus Bodensee AG (IBB), Heike Kemmner manages a successful and somewhat different bank with a team of around 180 employees. She accomplishes this with skill and foresight, based on her experience as a handball coach in the Bundesliga or as a rehabilitator in the Märklin insolvency. And with respect for the achievements of the bank’s owner Reinhold Würth, whom she appreciatively calls “Herr Professor”.
Better to the dentist than to the bank advisor
“Banking has to be pleasant for the customer,” says Andreas Falger, Director and Division Head of the Private Banking Sector since mid-2019. “But some people would rather go to the dentist than their bank advisor. At IBB, we do everything we can to ensure that our customers enjoy coming to us. We are not concerned with the assets that customers bring with them, but always with the person or people behind them; that’s why holistic advice is enormously important to us.”
