Will Deutsche Bank be next? [Closer to the Exchange]

created Forex Club29 March 2023

UBS's controversial takeover of Credit Suisse has fueled fears of possible problems for European banks. Analysts' eyes turned almost immediately to Deutsche Bank, which is now a shadow of its pre-financial crisis self. In 2007, for one share of the pearl in the crown of German banking, even over EUR 150 was paid. Will Deutsche Bank face a similar fate to Credit Suisse?

The possible merger of Deutsche Bank with another German lender, Commerzbank, was discussed as early as March 2019, but only a few weeks later - the talks broke off. Christian Sewing, who a year earlier sat on the chair of the CEO of the struggling Deutsche Bank, decided to radically restructure, as a result of which the employment was reduced by over a fifth and the bank's operations were switched from trading in shares to transactional banking. The accompanying removal of toxic assets from DB's balance sheet slowly but steadily began to bear fruit.

Currently, Deutsche Bank has recorded a net profit for ten quarters in a row, which in 2022 exceeded USD 5,4 billion. This is an increase of 159% compared to the previous year. The solvency measure of the CET1 bank at the end of last year was 13,4%, while the liquidity coverage ratio was at the level of 142%. According to XTB analyst Maciej Kietliński, these numbers do not indicate that there are reasons to worry about the solvency or insufficient liquidity of the German bank.

There was also considerable optimism in the Polish banking sector, which ended Tuesday's session with an increase of just over 1,9%. A well-known stock market saying says that there is no boom without banks So what can we expect from the WIG in the coming months?
