NEW YORK, NY – September 22, 2020 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Deutsch Bank AG (“Deutsche Bank” or the “Company”) (NYSE: DB).

On Sunday, September 20, 2020, BuzzFeed News reported that “secret U.S. government documents reveal that…[a number of big banks, including Deutsche Bank] have defied money laundering crackdowns by moving staggering sums of illicit cash for shadowy characters and criminal networks that have spread chaos and undermined democracy around the world.”  Further according to BuzzFeed News, the records show that five global banks, including Deutsche Bank, “kept profiting from powerful and dangerous players even after U.S. authorities fined these financial institutions for earlier failures to stem flows of dirty money.”

Reportedly, Deutsche Bank’s top leaders were warned multiple times about serious compliance failures that exposed the bank to money launderers.  According to BuzzFeed News, the supervisory board and committees that included Chairman Paul Achleitner were informed in 2013 and 2014 of anti-money laundering problems on at least three occasions.  Presentations at the time showed how the bank was struggling to vet its clients and facing technology as well as staffing issues for its compliance team, wrote.

On September 21, 2020, Deutsche Bank’s shares fell $0.75 per share, 8.25%, to close at $8.34 per share on unusually heavy trading volume.
