Deutsche Bank has turned to the Qatari royal family as part of plans to raise ￠8bn as the lender tries to draw a line under fears over its capital strength.
The Frankfurt-based bank will raise ￠6.3bn in a rights issue and a further ￠1.75bn from Paramount Services Holdings, the investment fund of the Qatari royal family, according to people close to the situation.
The extra capital is set to lift the lender’s common equity tier one ratio – a crucial measure of regulatory strength – from 9.5 per cent to 11.8 per cent.
The capital increase, which is at the top end of what analysts had expected, will catapult Deutsche out of the ranks of the least well capitalised banks in Europe, an issue that has long been a source of agitation among investors.
Deutsche has struggled with relative capital weakness at a time when the eurozone’s largest banks are being scrutinised by the European Central Bank in stress tests and an asset quality review this summer.
总部设在法兰克福的该行将以配股方式筹集63亿欧元，并通过卡塔尔王室的投资基金——派拉蒙服务控股(Paramount Services Holdings)筹集另外17.5亿欧元。
