1 min read

The FINANCIAL — John Cryan, Chief Executive Officer, said: “I am pleased with the start we have made to 2017. Client engagement is strong, asset flows are returning across the bank and activity is picking up. Our cost-cutting efforts are starting to pay off, while we have reduced complexity significantly. We have laid firm foundations upon which Deutsche Bank can once again deliver good results.”


Pre-tax profit of € 878 million, up 52% year-on-year

Net income of € 575 million, up 143% year-on-year


€ 7.3 billion, down 9% year-on-year

The decline was predominantly due to a negative swing of € 0.7 billion year-on-year resulting mainly from the development of Deutsche Bank’s credit spreads

Adjusted for this effect, revenues would have been broadly flat year-on-year

Provision for credit losses

€ 133 million, down 56% year on year, primarily due to improved performance in the metals and mining and oil and gas portfolios


Noninterest expenses of € 6.3 billion, down 12% year-on-year
