Deutsche Bank Launches $8.5 Billion Share Sale to Boost Capital

Deutsche Bank Launches $8.5 Billion Share Sale to Boost Capital

Shares in Deutsche Bank fell earlier after Bloomberg declared that the lender was studying its strategic options, including a capital increase and the partial sale of its asset management business.

Shares in Deutsche Bank, Germany's biggest lender, dived almost eight per cent in Frankfurt, after announcing on Sunday it would raise cash by issuing new shares. Postbank, Deutsche Bank's worldwide Private & Commercial Clients business and the global Wealth Management business will be part of this division.

Fittingly, Deutsche Bank's old-is-new strategy will be overseen by Cryan, who is adamant he is staying the course.

The sale will be the third time that Deutsche has been forced to tap the market since 2013 and comes after Mr Cryan tried to preserve capital by cutting costs, axeing individual bonuses for about a quarter of its 100,000-strong workforce and cancelling annual shareholder dividend payouts.

By 0857 GMT on Monday, the shares were trading 5.4 per cent lower at the bottom of the German blue-chip DAX, which was down 0.7 per cent.

Deutsche Bank shares sank nearly 6% today as the troubled lender embarked on an €8 billion (£6.9 billion) capital raising.

Jeffrey Urwin, the current head of the corporate and investment bank, as well as the U.S. business, will retire. Schenck a month ago said the loan specialist would just offer Postbank if an arrangement gave significant capital help to Deutsche Bank.

But banks in Germany face challenges, including low interest rates set by the European Central Bank and intense competition for clients' cash in a market crowded with small banks.

"The question is ... whether the bank will need more yet again in a few years".

As part of the restructuring, Deutsche said it will take a part of its asset management business public.

Deutsche Bank has practically multiplied in market an incentive since September 26, reflecting help over its USA contract securities settlement and the brighter viewpoint for banks taking after Donald Trump's race.

Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE:DB) moving in diverse range of trends as shares traded at $19.35 with moves down of -4.26%. Deutsche will retain a majority stake.

Separating the business from the advisory and underwriting units and shrinking it was part of his initial overhaul announced in October 2015.
