Deutsche Bank AG to Cuts 90% Bonuses

He said the bank had exited numerous underlying activities and improved standards.

Deutsche Bank will not be handing out bonuses to senior people this year after paying out $7.2 billion to the DoJ to settle it's rather batshit behavior during the mortgage crisis.

Following the announcement, shares of Deutsch Bank's United States tracking stock bounced slightly.

This week, John Cryan, the CEO of Deutsche Bank Niamen AKT (NYSE: DB), announced in a message to employees that the bank finally closed the $7.2 billion settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) regarding its sale of toxic mortgage securities during the financial crisis in 2008. The decision followed an announcement from USA officials Tuesday that they had signed-off on the preliminary agreement the two sides had reached on December 23.

Two of those tips, from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children , led officials to Walterboro , South Carolina. Police have checked around 2,500 tips in relation to the abduction and received one that broke the case previous year .


The Justice Department reached $46 billion in settlements with USA banks over the shoddy securities that contributed to the US housing market collapse and financial crisis before turning to Deutsche and other European banks.

The settlement requires Deutsche Bank to pay a $3.1 billion civil penalty under the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act (FIRREA), which authorizes the federal government to impose civil penalties against financial institutions that violate various predicate offenses, including wire and mail fraud.

The German bank will admit to making "false representations and omitting material information from disclosures to investors about the loans included in residential mortgage-backed securities sold by the bank" as a part of the agreement sealed after months of negotiations.

Deutsche Bank also knew appraisals were inflated, and concealed second liens on properties. About 75 percent of employees will not be affected by the bonus decision, or only to a small extent, the bank said.
