“Over the last three and a half years we have successfully transformed Deutsche Bank,” said Christian Sewing, director of the entity, noting that the bank has become significantly more profitable and better balanced. “In 2022, we demonstrated that by achieving our best results in 15 years,” he added.
Deutsche Bank’s result was boosted by a deferred tax asset valuation adjustment of €1.4 billion, compared with €274 million a year earlier, reflecting continued strong performance in the bank’s operations in the United States. Joined.
Deutsche Bank’s turnover between January and December increased by 7%, to 27,210 million euros, while the impact of provisions for credit risk increased to 1,226 million, compared to 515 million in 2021.
