Deutsche may add assets to bad bank


Senior Deutsche Bank officials have discussed the possibility of putting additional problematic assets into a unit it created earlier this year, if the bank is able to sell assets already held within that "bad bank".

These discussions are preliminary, and a Deutsche Bank spokesman highlighted the bank has no plans to add additional assets into its capital release unit. It’s anyway one of the options being discussed for resolving a problem in a tight budget. Only 30% of Deutsche Bank’s 25 billion euros worth of Level 3 assets have so far been placed within the capital release unit. As a reminder, the bank raised 29.3 billion euros in capital over the past nine years. At that, Deutsche shares declined 75% over the past four-and-a-half years. The bank’s shares are trading 1.7% higher early on Thursday.
