Deutsche Bank to cut 18,000 jobs in 7.4 billion euro overhaul

Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) intends make the huge trading tables one of the largest investments in an investment bank since the financial crash, which was the reason for the restructure of 18,000 jobs and prices of 7.4 billion euros.

The program conveys a serious withdraw from investment banking by Deutsche Bank, which has always aimed to be the main power on Wall Street.


Under overhaul, the bank will wind down its international business with shares, wind down its investment bank, and also curtail some operations with fixed income. Besides, this area is traditionally considered to be one of its powers.

The bank is going to make a new so-called “bad bank” to eliminate undesirable assets in the amount of 74 billion euros of risk-weighted assets.

Restructuring depth proves that Deutsche has put up with the inability to keep up with leading Wall Street hitters like JP Morgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) and Goldman Sachs (GS.N).

After the head of the investment bank Deutsche Garth Ritchie resigned on Friday, curtailments were presaged.

Chief executive Christian Sewing, concentrating on steadier bank income streams, considered it as the most crucial modification of the bank in decades, saying that it was a reboot.

Sewing will now represent an investment bank on the board of directors in a shift, which illustrates the weakening of the influence of divisions.

Deutsche Bank shares increased by more than 3% in Frankfurt, reaching a maximum since May 2.
