Deutsche Bank to raise billions with rights issue

Deutsche Bank plans to raise about 8bn euros (£6.9bn, $8.5bn) by issuing new shares.

The share sale by the troubled German bank is part of a wider shake-up.

The bank will partially float its asset management business and retain Postbank – the retail banking business it had been expected to sell.

Deutsche will be reorganised around three divisions: private banking and wealth management; asset management; and corporate and investment banking.

Germany’s biggest bank is trying to reshape itself after grappling with huge losses and a 15bn euro legal bill imposed by regulators since 2012.

I like DB, my husband’s first job out of college was DB!
