How Dangerous Is Deutsche Bank?
Documentary 45 Min.
Beschreibung

Deutsche Bank is under pressure: negative reports from the IMF, and billions in fines for criminal wrongdoing. The bank has to rebuild trust. For the first time, Deutsche Bank has allowed a camera team to tour its offices, and interview senior managers. How much of a threat does the bank pose to the stability of international financial markets? Last year, the International Monetary Fund said Deutsche Bank may be the "most important net contributor to systemic risks" in the financial sector. That prompted the media to dub the bank the world's "most dangerous." Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan says: "We were in the headlines -- for all the wrong reasons." The bank needs a financial- and moral overhaul. It's already dealing with legacy problems including criminal activity involving billions, and excessive costs -- and now it has to manage a crisis of trust. Company executives promise to do better. Corporate communications chief Jörg Eigendorf says: "Either we change how we're perceived, -- or how we're perceived will change us." The new policy involves openness and transparency -- and that's why the bank allowed us to make this documentary. Our report provides exclusive insight into the inner workings of Deutsche Bank corporate offices in Frankfurt, London, and New York. We interview senior executives including CEO John Cryan and chairman of the supervisory board Paul Achleitner. Our report tackles key questions including: How far along are the bank's clean-up operations? What key legacy problems still need to be dealth with? Is this transition to transparency credible? And perhaps most important: what is the future of Deutsche Bank? As assessment of the bank's problems shows that the international financial system is closely interconnected, and this poses a number of threats to its stability.
