The bank manages to wind down its business in Russia at the same time and receive windfall profits there.
Deutsche Bank, the largest in Germany, received a record profit in Russia in 2022. According to Reuters , last year the profit of the Russian “daughter” of the bank grew almost five times – up to 66.42 million dollars.
The publication explains such an impressive growth by the fact that it was foreign banks that took over a significant part of the financial services market in Russia after most Russian banks were under sanctions.
At the same time, the total assets of Deutsche Bank in Russia decreased by 36.3% to 81.6 billion rubles. This is probably due to the bank’s announced plans to gradually wind down its business in the Russian Federation.
