Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or with any securities regulatory authority of any state or other jurisdiction of the

- ii -




United States of America and are subject to the tax law requirements of the United States of America; subject to certain
exceptions, Instruments may not be offered, sold or delivered within the United States of America or to, or for the
account or benefit of, U.S. persons.
Amounts payable under the Instruments may be calculated by reference to Euribor, which is currently provided by
European Money Markets Institute (EMMI), LIBOR, which is currently provided by ICE Benchmark Administration
(IBA), STIBOR, which is provided by Swedish Financial Benchmark Facility (SFBF), SONIA which is currently provided
by the Bank of England, SOFR, which is currently provided by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, STR, which
is provided by the European Central Bank or other indices which are deemed benchmarks for the purposes of
Regulation (EU) 2016/1011 (as amended, the "Benchmark Regulation"). As at the date of this Prospectus, SONIA,
SOFR and STR do not fal within the scope of the Benchmark Regulation. As at the date of this Prospectus, EMMI
appears on the register of administrators and benchmarks established and maintained by the European Securities and
Markets Authority ("ESMA") pursuant to Article 36 of the Benchmark Regulation (the "Benchmarks Register"), while
IBA, SFBF, the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the European Central Bank do not

If the relevant Final Terms in respect of any Instruments include a legend entitled "Prohibition of Sales to
European Economic Area Retail Investors", the Instruments are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise
made available to and, with effect from such date, should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to
any retail investor in the European Economic Area ("EEA"). For these purposes, a retail investor means a
person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; (ii) a customer
within the meaning of Directive 2016/97/EU (as amended, the "Insurance Distribution Directive"), where that
customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii)
not a qualified investor as defined in the Prospectus Regulation. Consequently no key information document
required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the "PRIIPs Regulation") for offering or selling the
Instruments or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore
offering or selling the Instruments or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may
be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation.
If the relevant Final Terms in respect of any Instruments specify "Prohibition of Sales to European Economic Area
Retail Investors" as "Not Applicable", except to the extent subparagraph (ii) below may apply, any offer of Instruments
in any Member State of the EEA (each, a "Relevant Member State") wil be made pursuant to an exemption under
the Prospectus Regulation from the requirement to publish a prospectus for offers of Instruments. Accordingly any
person making or intending to make an offer in that Relevant Member State of Instruments which are the subject of an
offering/placement contemplated in this Prospectus as completed by Final Terms or a drawdown prospectus in relation
to the offer of those Instruments may only do so (i) in circumstances in which no obligation arises for the Issuer or any
Dealer to publish a prospectus pursuant to Article 3 of the Prospectus Regulation or supplement a prospectus pursuant
to Article 23 of the Prospectus Regulation, in each case, in relation to such offer, or (i ) if a prospectus for such offer
has been approved by the competent authority in that Relevant Member State or, where appropriate, approved in
another Relevant Member State and notified to the competent authority in that Relevant Member State and (in either
case) published, al in accordance with the Prospectus Regulation, provided that any such prospectus has
subsequently been completed by Final Terms which specify or is a drawdown prospectus which specifies that offers
may be made other than pursuant to Article 1(4) of the Prospectus Regulation in that Relevant Member State and such
offer is made in the period beginning and ending on the dates specified for such purpose in such prospectus or Final
Terms or drawdown prospectus, as applicable and the Issuer has consented in writing to its use for the purpose of
such offer. Except to the extent sub-paragraph (i ) above may apply, neither the Issuer nor any Dealer have authorised,
nor do they authorise, the making of any offer of Instruments in circumstances in which an obligation arises for the
Issuer or any Dealer to publish or supplement a prospectus for such offer.
If the relevant Final Terms in respect of any Instruments includes a legend entitled "Prohibition of Sales to
United Kingdom Retail Investors", the Instruments are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made
available to and, with effect from such date, should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any
retail investor in the UK. For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a
retail client as defined in point (8) of article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 2017/565 as it forms part of domestic law
by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("EUWA"); (ii) a customer within the meaning of the
provisions of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended, "FSMA") and any rules or regulations
made under the FSMA to implement Directive (EU) 2016/97, where that customer would not qualify as a

- iii -




professional client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of
domestic law by virtue of the EUWA; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in the Prospectus Regulation
as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA. Consequently no key information document required
by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (the "UK PRIIPs
Regulation") for offering or selling the Instruments or otherwise making them available to retail investors in
the UK has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Instruments or otherwise making them available
to any retail investor in the UK may be unlawful under the UK PRIIPs Regulation.
If the relevant Final Terms in respect of any Instruments specify "Prohibition of Sales to United Kingdom Retail
Investors" as "Not Applicable", except to the extent subparagraph (i ) below may apply, any offer of Instruments in the
UK wil be made pursuant to an exemption under the Prospectus Regulation as it forms part of domestic law by virtue
of the EUWA from the requirement to publish a prospectus for offers of Instruments. Accordingly any person making
or intending to make an offer in the UK of Instruments which are the subject of an offering/placement contemplated in
this Prospectus as completed by Final Terms or a drawdown prospectus in relation to the offer of those Instruments
may only do so (i) in circumstances in which no obligation arises for the Issuer or any Dealer to publish a prospectus
pursuant section 85 of the FSMA or supplement a prospectus pursuant to Article 23 of the Prospectus Regulation as
it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA, in each case, in relation to such offer, or (i ) if a prospectus for
such offer has been approved by the competent authority in the UK or, where appropriate, approved in the UK and
notified to the competent authority in the UK and (in either case) published, al in accordance with the Prospectus
Regulation as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA, provided that any such prospectus has subsequently
been completed by Final Terms which specify or is a drawdown prospectus which specifies that offers may be made
other than pursuant to Article 1(4) of the Prospectus Regulation as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA
in the UK and such offer is made in the period beginning and ending on the dates specified for such purpose in such
prospectus or Final Terms or drawdown prospectus, as applicable and the Issuer has consented in writing to its use
for the purpose of such offer. Except to the extent sub-paragraph (i ) above may apply, neither the Issuer nor any
Dealer have authorised, nor do they authorise, the making of any offer of Instruments in circumstances in which an
obligation arises for the Issuer or any Dealer to publish or supplement a prospectus for such offer.
The Issuer does not consent to the use of this Prospectus for the subsequent resale or final placement of the
Instruments.
This Prospectus may only be used for the purpose for which it has been published.
Neither this Prospectus nor any Final Terms constitute an offer or an invitation by or on behalf of the Issuer
or the Dealers to any person to subscribe for or to purchase any Instruments. Neither this Prospectus nor any
Final Terms may be used for the purpose of an offer or solicitation by anyone in any jurisdiction in which such
offer or solicitation is not authorised or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such an offer or
solicitation.
MIFID II PRODUCT GOVERNANCE / TARGET MARKET ­ The Final Terms in respect of any Instruments may
include a legend entitled "MiFID II Product Governance" which wil outline the target market assessment by the
manufacturer(s) in respect of the Instruments and which channels for distribution of the Instruments are appropriate.
Any person subsequently offering, sel ing or recommending the Instruments (a "Distributor") should take into
consideration the target market assessment; however, a Distributor subject to MiFID II is responsible for undertaking
its own target market assessment in respect of the Instruments (by either adopting or refining the target market
assessment) and determining appropriate distribution channels.
A determination will be made in relation to each issue about whether, for the purpose of the MiFID II Product
Governance rules under EU Delegated Directive 2017/593 (the "MiFID II Product Governance Rules"), any Dealer
subscribing for any Instruments is a manufacturer in respect of such Instruments, but otherwise neither the Arranger
nor the Dealers nor any of their respective affiliates will be a manufacturer for the purpose of the MiFID II Product
Governance Rules.
UK MiFIR PRODUCT GOVERNANCE / TARGET MARKET ­ The Final Terms in respect of any Instruments may
include a legend entitled "UK MiFIR Product Governance" which wil outline the target market assessment by the
manufacturer(s) in respect of the Instruments and which channels for distribution of the Instruments are appropriate.
A Distributor should take into consideration the target market assessment; however, a Distributor subject to the
Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the "UK
MiFIR Product Governance Rules") is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of

- iv -




the Instruments (by either adopting or refining the target market assessment) and determining appropriate distribution
channels.
A determination will be made in relation to each issue about whether, for the purpose of the UK MiFIR Product
Governance Rules any Dealer subscribing for any Instruments is a manufacturer in respect of such Instruments, but
otherwise neither the Arranger nor the Dealers nor any of their respective affiliates wil be a manufacturer for the
purpose of the UK MiFIR Product Governance Rules. Furthermore, the Issuer is not a manufacturer or Distributor for
the purposes of the UK MiFIR Product Governance Rules.
IN CONNECTION WITH THE ISSUE OF ANY TRANCHE OF INSTRUMENTS, THE DEALER OR DEALERS (IF
ANY) NAMED AS THE STABILISING MANAGER(S) (OR PERSONS ACTING ON BEHALF OF ANY STABILISING
MANAGER(S)) IN THE APPLICABLE FINAL TERMS MAY OVER-ALLOT INSTRUMENTS OR EFFECT
TRANSACTIONS WITH A VIEW TO SUPPORTING THE MARKET PRICE OF THE INSTRUMENTS AT A LEVEL
HIGHER THAN THAT WHICH MIGHT OTHERWISE PREVAIL. HOWEVER, STABILISATION MAY NOT
NECESSARILY OCCUR. ANY STABILISATION ACTION MAY BEGIN ON OR AFTER THE DATE ON WHICH
ADEQUATE PUBLIC DISCLOSURE OF THE TERMS OF THE OFFER OF THE RELEVANT TRANCHE OF
INSTRUMENTS IS MADE AND, IF BEGUN, MAY CEASE AT ANY TIME, BUT IT MUST END NO LATER THAN
THE EARLIER OF 30 DAYS AFTER THE ISSUE DATE OF THE RELEVANT TRANCHE OF INSTRUMENTS AND
60 DAYS AFTER THE DATE OF THE ALLOTMENT OF THE RELEVANT TRANCHE OF INSTRUMENTS. ANY
STABILISATION ACTION OR OVER-ALLOTMENT MUST BE CONDUCTED BY THE RELEVANT STABILISING
MANAGER(S) (OR PERSON(S) ACTING ON BEHALF OF ANY STABILISING MANAGER(S)) IN ACCORDANCE
WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS AND RULES.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAMME
General
Under this Programme, Aareal Bank may from time to time issue Instruments to one or more of the Dealers.
Deutsche Bank Aktiengesel schaft acts as arranger in respect of the Programme (the "Arranger").
The maximum aggregate principal amount of the Instruments at any time outstanding under the Programme wil not
exceed 20,000,000,000 (or its equivalent in any other currency). The Issuer may increase the amount of the
Programme from time to time.
Instruments may be issued on a continuing basis to one or more of the Dealers. Instruments may be distributed on
a syndicated or non-syndicated basis. The method of distribution of each Tranche (as defined below) will be stated
in the Final Terms. Instruments may be offered to qualified investors (as defined in the Prospectus Regulation) only.
Instruments may be issued on a continuous basis in Tranches (each a "Tranche"), each Tranche consisting of
Instruments which are identical in al respects. One or more Tranches, which are expressed to be consolidated and
forming a single series and identical in al respects, but having different issue dates, interest commencement dates,
issue prices and dates for first interest payments may form a Series ("Series") of Instruments. Further Instruments
may be issued as part of existing Series. The specific terms of each Tranche (which will be supplemented, where
necessary, with supplemental terms and conditions) wil be set forth in the Final Terms.
Instruments will be issued in such denominations as may be agreed between the Issuer and the relevant Dealer(s)
and as indicated in the Final Terms save that the minimum denomination of the Instruments will be, if in Euro,
Euro 1,000, if in any currency other than Euro, in an amount in such other currency nearly equivalent to Euro 1,000
at the time of the issue of Instruments.
Instruments may be issued at an issue price which is at par or at a discount to, or premium over, par, as stated in the
Final Terms. The issue price for Instruments to be issued wil be determined at the time of pricing on the basis of a
yield which wil be determined on the basis of the orders of the investors. Orders will specify a minimum yield and
may only be confirmed at or above such yield. The resulting yield will be used to determine an issue price, al to
correspond to the yield. The Instruments are freely transferable.
Application has been made to list Instruments on the official list of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and to trade
Instruments on the Regulated Market "Bourse de Luxembourg" which is a regulated market for the purposes of MiFID
II. Instruments may further be issued under the Programme which wil be listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange or
which wil not be listed on any stock exchange.
Instruments wil be accepted for clearing through one or more Clearing Systems as specified in the Final Terms.
These systems will include those operated by Clearstream Banking AG, Clearstream Banking, S.A. and Euroclear
Bank SA/NV.
Deutsche Bank Aktiengesel schaft will act as fiscal agent with respect to Instruments cleared through Clearstream
Banking, S.A. and Euroclear Bank SA/NV and Aareal Bank AG will act as fiscal agent with respect to Instruments
cleared through Clearstream Banking AG (each a "Fiscal Agent"). The Fiscal Agents and other institutions, al as
indicated in the Final Terms, wil act as paying agents (the "Paying Agents").
Ranking
Instruments to be issued under the Programme may have the fol owing ranking:
Senior Notes which shall not qualify as MREL-eligible debt:
The obligations under the Notes constitute unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer ranking pari passu
among themselves and pari passu with al other unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer except for
such unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer which are preferred by statutory provisions or which
are subordinated by virtue of their terms or by statutory provisions.
Senior Notes which shall qualify as MREL-eligible senior preferred debt pursuant to § 46f paragraph 5 KWG
The Notes are intended to qualify as eligible liabilities for the minimum requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities
of the Issuer ("MREL"). The obligations under the Notes constitute unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the
Issuer and, save for applicable laws and regulations, rank pari passu among themselves and pari passu with al other
- 1 -





unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer (except for obligations under debt instruments (Schuldtitel)
pursuant to § 46f (6) and (9) of the German Banking Act (Kreditwesengesetz, "KWG") or any successor provision
which rank junior to the Notes), subject, however, to statutory priorities conferred to certain unsecured and
unsubordinated obligations in the event of resolution measures imposed on the Issuer or in the event of the
dissolution, liquidation, insolvency, composition or other proceedings for the avoidance of insolvency of, or against,
the Issuer.
Senior Notes which shall qualify as MREL-eligible senior non-preferred debt pursuant to
§ 46f paragraph 6 KWG
The Notes are intended to qualify as eligible liabilities for the minimum requirement for own funds and eligible
liabilities of the Issuer (MREL). The obligations under the Notes constitute unsecured and unsubordinated senior
non-preferred obligations of the Issuer under debt instruments (Schuldtitel) within the meaning of § 46f (6) of the
German Banking Act or any successor provision ("Debt Instruments") and, save for applicable laws and
regulations, rank pari passu among themselves and pari passu with al other unsecured and unsubordinated senior
non-preferred obligations under Debt Instruments of the Issuer, including senior non-preferred obligations under
Debt Instruments referred to in § 46f (9) KWG, but junior to al other unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of
the Issuer, subject, however, to statutory priorities conferred to certain unsecured and unsubordinated obligations
in the event of resolution measures imposed on the Issuer or in the event of the dissolution, liquidation, insolvency,
composition or other proceedings for the avoidance of insolvency of, or against, the Issuer.
Pfandbriefe
The obligations under the Pfandbriefe constitute direct, unconditional and unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer
ranking pari passu among themselves. The Pfandbriefe are covered in accordance with the Pfandbrief Act and rank

Subordinated Notes
The obligations under the Notes constitute unsecured and subordinated obligations of the Issuer ranking pari passu
among themselves and pari passu with all other subordinated obligations of the Issuer except as otherwise provided
by applicable law or the terms of any such other obligations. In the event of resolution measures imposed on the
Issuer and in the event of the dissolution, liquidation, insolvency, composition or other proceedings for the avoidance
of insolvency of, or against, the Issuer, the obligations under the Notes shal be ful y subordinated to the claims of
other unsubordinated creditors of the Issuer so that in any such event no amounts shal be payable in respect of the
Notes until the claims of such other unsubordinated creditors of the Issuer have been satisfied in ful . No Holder may
set off his claims arising under the Notes against any claims of the Issuer. Considering this subordination provision
the Issuer is free to meet its obligations under the Notes also out of other free assets. No security or guarantee of
whatever kind is, or shal at any time be, provided by the Issuer or any other person securing rights of the Holders
under the Notes.
No subsequent agreement may limit the subordination or shorten the term of the Notes or any applicable notice
period. If the Notes are redeemed or repurchased by the Issuer or as a result of an early redemption, then the
amounts redeemed or paid must be returned to the Issuer irrespective of any agreement to the contrary unless the
supervisory authority of the Issuer has given its consent to such early redemption or repurchase. Any cancel ation or
redemption of the Notes or any repurchase of the Notes prior to their scheduled maturity requires the prior consent
of the supervisory authority of the Issuer.
