18,000 jobs lost due to radical banking at Deutsche Bank

Posted by Aktis Team on 7 July 2019

Deutsche Bank has announced that it will close down its equities trading business, cutting 18,000 jobs and hiving off €288bn of assets into a bad bank. The new plan represents a retreat from the ambition of becoming Goldman’s Sachs main rival and a return to financing corporate clients and retail banking. This series of events has pushed down the bank’s share price down to record lows.
