Consolidation Across the European Banking Sector


Berlin, Germany -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2021 -- Consolidation in the European banking sector is something that has become a hot topic since the start of the year. Deutsche Bank's Chief Financial Officer James von Moltke said in a speech over the summer that the German bank sees the logic in the need for mergers and acquisitions in the sector in Europe, and also that the current job at hand is to prepare for that outcome. Von Moltke described this as 'a focus on transformation' and that this is something Deutsche Bank sees as part of its future. The bank has seen a significant uplift in its fortunes recently, posting the first full year profit since 2014 last year and receiving a Moody's ratings upgrade last month. It has also revealed that all of Deutsche Bank's four units - asset management and its private, corporate and investment banks - are currently performing ahead of plan. The revenue goal that the bank has set - generating EUR25 billion next year - looks more than achievable.
