Banking again in in in two thousand sixteen to to work for for our three and and helped set up a lot of Asian operations for them and my my third startup now is is contour which started seven months ago. So yeah about thirty years of of Finn INTECH. Extensive. Indeed of an anti corporate and start up world. You've got it all. So Call as it is customary here at blogs could you please explain to our listeners? What is blockchain and how does it work? What is blockchain? Well, I I think I'll I'll go to the the level below and distributed ledger technology and really disturb alleged technology is is is an opportunity for instead of managing your data in one central database actually everyone having their data in their own database and so just to be ledger instead of breaking it up and and it's goes back to the way our three and quarter talk about it. Is You, know we we all should should own our own data. And then we there should be a protocol to share it and you shouldn't share it with everyone. And sharing with everyone is is traditional blockchain which be the broadcast method of of consensus, but instead a quarter. On distributed ledger technology basis manages data by having them Even everyone has a note everyone has their own database, but there's a protocol, the sheriff, and that's how. Quarter works, and that's actually what contours built on. And Great and I think it's important. You know the point you just made about. It was blockchain near sharing with everyone in whiz these legend technology you only sharing with the relevant parties because that's sometimes it's something that is misunderstood too often by people who are introduced to this world though thank you for that. They usually sort of say has also is is when I talk about traditional blockchain, Mus the broadcast method and I do it in in Taiwan to Taiwan fifty years ago you when you got when you got married, you didn't need to register to to get married. You you you just had a big dinner. You had a big new invited everyone in the village. To. Front of everyone the village said I'm marrying this woman and therefore everyone knew you're married you didn't have to register anything but the fact is that everyone knew it and then it became a fact and that actually sort of this is a consensus method in in in an old version. Indeed indeed. Thank you for that The. World Trade Organization estimates that between eighty percent and ninety percent of global trade relies on trade finance. Yet, there is a one point five, trillion dollar gap between the market demand and supply for trade finance something, which I'm sure was co Vina's has probably increased US instead. And KYC and am. L. Requirements remain the most cited barrier was high transaction fees and low credit ratings running up the top three SME's remain disproportionately affected by these and other bears experiencing a forty five percents rejection rate on proposals, which is much larger than than seventeen percent seen by multinational organizations. What are your views on these challenges? Again International Trade. It started out of minutes it's been going on for a long time. You always have this distrust deficit when you have a buyer and seller in in far off countries now that trust deficit is a little bit easier to manage now because you have the Internet and you can see people online and you can skype them and talk to them and Imagine what it was like when you you had to put money down for shipment that would come three months later and you didn't even know the person you only known by a letter right so obviously, it's gotten a lot better with with communications nowadays but I'm in the challenge is really for for SME's is is related to data right because a bank. Bank as a as a lender right as a facilitator of of credit. Is. Looking. To to not make a mistake banks don't really have to. A. Lot of banks goals is is not necessarily to make money but don't lose it. Right and they'll make mistakes on credit and it's very hard for SME's to have A. To have enough information or the information that they have is not sufficient to tick the boxes on a traditional credit scoring sheet, which which the banks us
'Dark Towers' Chases Scandal-Ridden Institution Deutsche Bank
"David ensor joins us now. His new book is called Dark Towers. Deutsche Bank Donald Trump an epic tale of destruction it debuts this week at number two on the New York Times bestseller list and I also have to disclose that. David is my cousin in law and he eats all the pie Thanksgiving about his nonetheless. Welcome here on the PODCAST. Lobo I didn't know what you're going to get that person quickly. Yeah important. Why people to know Dave? Thanks for being here. That's revenue so we're not GonNa talk about that crime. We're GONNA talk about some other ones. This is a book about deutchebanks. Started off with reporting that you did beginning around two thousand fourteen. I was in London working at the time of the Wall Street Journal and I'd already been kind of obsessing about Deutsche Bank. Ps This is you know. One of the biggest banks in the world one of the most troubled institutions and involved is either at or near the center of just about every financial scandal under the Sun and then in January twenty fourteen one of the most senior executives at the bank and kind of the right hand man to the CEO at the time was found hanging in his apartment in lended. Who is he his name is? Bill Broke Smith and he was a guy who had worked at the bank on and off for almost twenty years and he had he was an expert in risk management in an expert in derivatives and he but more important he was the guy who turned to as kind of the ethical compass of the bank he was. He was known informally as the conscience of the place. He was someone who could say no. He was pretty conservative and he was not quite as hungry for short-term profits as most of his colleagues were and it's something that happened at the bank immediately precede his suicide and did he leave a suicide note like do. We know that this was tied to his work. Well I mean it's really hard and I think probably dangerous to try to make in light statement about why someone does something like this but he did leave a bunch of suicide notes including one to with his longtime colleague onto Jane who at the time was the CO CEO of the Bank. And so one thing that became clear over the years a report and I did and working to talk to his many friends and family members and former colleagues as I could was that. There's no doubt that at the time of his death. Deutsche Bank was very much on his mind in someone he knew his on his mind in a not in a good way he was very upset about some of the things that had transpired while he was there are before we get into some of the things that that he personally saw during the I guess the Early Twenty First Century you say that as of two thousand fourteen it was well established that Deutsche Bank was kind of troubled scandal-ridden institution I mean. How far does that date back? Well the bank is one hundred fifty years old this year. Happy Birthday Deutsche Bank and for the first several decades of its existence. This is just a pretty provincial. German and European lender helping big industrial companies like Siemens spread their wings internationally. But when the Nazis came to power in Germany in the thirties Deutsche Bank became a central part of their attempt to take over the world and this is not attempt to take the Nazi attempted takeover. Was that different from what other German banking institutions did. At the time Deutsche Bank was by far the biggest German bank. A lot of German companies to survive did what it took to arrive in that area which was helping the Nazis. But there's been an attempt by the bank and some historians I think in recent decades to kind of sanitize that basic fact by saying well. Everyone was doing it and that was just the way the world works and we can look back at this period now and say that Deutsche Bank was party to genocide. Wow most people who don't work in finance and don't report on finance look at these banks. They all kind of seem interchangeable and interchangeably bad. That every one of them or many of them have had one terrible scandal or another or many in recent years is a bank especially at I mean. Is there something about its culture? There are a lot of things that make it a specially bad. I mean first of all wallets true that just about every bank under the Sun has been attached to one or more financial scandals over the years. Don't you think really has been involved in a disproportionate number and it's faced disproportionate penalties. As a result of that you can look at that in terms of the number of criminal charges. The bank has faced around the world or the amount in fines that it's racked up the to me. The better measure of its destructive capacity is the havoc wreaked around the world. And you can really look in. Probably almost every continent of the world in see some major in pretty pretty bad scandal to the bank was involved with the cause real harm whether it's destroying companies or really messing up economies or being involved in major bribery or corruption scandals laundering money violating sanctions. Deutsche Bank is blamed by the families of some American soldiers for their deaths in Iraq because the bank was illegally funding Iranian terrorists. So you can say that about some things but you can't say about every bank that every single scandal comes right back to their doorstep in that unfortunately is the case. Allow the time with deutchebanks one of the things that differentiates Deutsche Bank for many other banks is that there is no villain at the top. They have no. Ceo Unlike many other banks is that part of the problem that there isn't one person who has held accountable. Well it actually used to be that way these days for the past fifteen years or so they have had a CEO. In fact you can trace the banks last series of problems going back to the mid two thousand to the decision to place increasing power in this unitary see It's gotten worse when they've had someone. Yeah although it got worse under Joe Ackerman who is the longtime CEO from two thousand to two thousand twelve. And he was the one who converted the organizational structure of the bank from being this kind of collaborative committee led approach to being one where there's an American style. Ceo At the top of the bank and Ackerman very shortly upon arriving as CEO of the bank made a very fateful decision which was that he decided that within a very short period of time a couple of years deutchebanks prophets needed to go up about five hundred percent and looking backwards. It doesn't seem that surprise and the consequences that followed that at the time. This marked a really transformational change within the bank. And it went from being an institution that looked around and kind of saw itself as serving multiple constituencies whether shareholders or customers employees or the communities. In which an operator and it went from doing that to having a single minded focus and obsession on maximising short-term profits basically consequences. Be Damned and when you talk about the recent crimes of DEUTCHEBANKS and we're not even getting to Donald Trump who is in your subtitle him later. Did most of those things manipulating markets helping terrorists regimes defrauding regulators. Did most of this take place during that two thousand and two to two thousand twelve period when he was the CEO will the got started. Then and that was Ackerman's decision to prioritize short-term profits above all else was the catalyst for all sorts of bad behavior within the bank and it wasn't just the people were rushing to make money at any cost and although they were doing that it was also that the bank at that moment because it was so obsessed with meeting quarterly profit targets. It stopped investing in things that cost money. For example they stop investing in technology. And so the banks internal computer systems became just this. Archaic jumbled mess and that sounds kind of technical and maybe not that important but the reality is immense that Deutsche Bank. If you if you were asked to say Deutsche Bank what how much money have you lent to say Russia? There's no easy way to answer that you can just type it into a computer. None of these computer systems are talking to each other. And that's a pretty scary thing for bank. And they also completely failed to invest in compliance an anti money laundering staff. And because those are things that cost money they're not going to produce revenue and in fact they they do the opposite prison revenue. They take away revenue as their job. If they're doing it properly is to say no to potentially problematic and potentially very lucrative transactions this focus on quarterly profits and profit above all else. Is that very different from what other banks were doing. During this period Deutsche Bank went from

Where are musicians making money
"Ninety nine was a peak year for the music industry with sales reaching fourteen point six billion dollars in the US. And then, you know, the story Napster happened I tunes happened and the CD store died twenty years later. The music business is back to, quote one writer it's back like a zombie prime to devour the world on a massive scale because of streaming services, some projection show that music, revenue may soon surpass the benchmark set in the late nineties, here's pitchforks, senior, staff writer, Marc HOGAN, basically, your for years and years as has been widely publicized, the industry was doing really badly. But now has been finally growing again recently, thanks to the expected growth from a streaming. Goldman Sachs says forty one billion dollars annually by twenty thirty. Right. I mean, unless bear in mind that Leeman brothers in nineteen ninety nine also. Had these really rosy upbeat predictions for industry and the industry crashed and then leading others is now gone. So these, these predictions should all be taken with a grain of salt, but people seem to expect the industry to be healthy again. So that's the labels how Spotify doing Spotify. They keep growing. They have more and more users, they're expected to keep growing around the world, the revenues are pretty big, but they generally lose money. So Spotify struggling to turn all of these users into actual profits in your article, you do really great breakdown of where the revenue goes. So break it down for sure. Well, according to deutchebanks report, the earlier this year, for everyone hundred dollars consumer spending on CDs or vinyl of the labels profit is eight dollars for every one hundred dollars spent on down those on, I tunes, that's nine dollars. And for every one hundred dollars spent on streaming the labels profit is. Thirteen dollars. So the share that goes, the labels is actually bigger under your streaming than it was under the old physical formats, is that simply because of logistics cost of production. They don't have to make a thing cutting out the middleman. Yes, exactly, where's the rest of the money, go to well, I think, for musician it varies based on what they're deal is what I found the more people I talked with is just it really depends. And it's it's difficult to come up with a single simple number for what -sition gets now. Let's talk about musicians. How is this boom affecting, you know, the people who are actually, making the music the way, the boom, seems to be musicians is similar to what we're seeing across the economy, really where the upper echelon Hughes doing better and better, and the middle income, and lower income is issues are not doing this. Well, I talked to one you leibel head who said that the middle class for musicians has dried up. That's not really there anymore. What's the average musician making no days? Well, according to one survey, it was around. Around thirty five thousand dollars in two thousand seventeen but only about twenty one thousand three hundred dollars that came from activity related to music. So that's live gigs that streams merge live for the most common source of income. So these are professional musicians, who are not able to make a living doing music. Exactly. Yeah. I mean, that's kind of what we're seeing is getting harder and harder for the vast majority of people who actually make music to make living on the other hand, though.

"His lawyers look, can we find a way to wriggle out of this. And so his lawyers star pouring over the fine print of these financial contracts with Deutsche Bank and one of them comes across a provision in the contract. That's called a force majeure provision, which is in God. So it basically means if there's. Unanticipated act of God, look a natural disaster, for example, that theoretically would allow Trump to void or delay the contract. And it just so happened that a few days before the lawyers started going through these contracts with a fine tooth comb, Greenspan.

It's Been an Interesting Year for Deutsche Bank
"The head of Japan Christian seven did an interview with the Houston business editor at the German newspaper did site. The two were speaking at a reception at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. You wanted to become a journalist of all profuse Heusen, the newspaper, man, asking the banker if you were a journalist, how would you report on Deutsche Bank today? So in a nutshell what you, right? The Deutsches CEO is taken aback. He fumbles for a moment. I would say Deutsche Bank is the most significant self-help story, the financial industry. That's how the detailed editor doesn't really want to talk about self help sometimes with Dutch makes the case that just it seems to get better. There is another problem like in, in November when things really looked up and then all of a sudden stated Tony's came in search dodger Bank headquarters under the suspicion that Dutch was involved in in Monday, laundering activities. What was your first thought? In a nutshell. A few months earlier, the German police had raided the bank's Frankfurt headquarters. No. Of course at that point in time. It's it's disappointing not disappointing. You know, personally for me, but being subject to investigations and regulatory actions has become the new normal for Bank in recent years. The Bank has been fine billions of dollars for lax controls on everything from laundering Russian money to violating sanctions against Iran, Libya. And Sudan, somehow you life is tainted by pest how with the constant uncertainty that something is light pop up. You know, I think that makes live really interesting, right? I mean. That's life has become very interesting for deutchebanks. In a recent portfolio congress reveal that has been asking for detailed records of frump family business interactions with Deutsche Bank in the file in congress said straight out, it's investigating the relationship for possible money laundering, illicit financial deals fraud and foreign influence in the two thousand sixteen elections. By its own admission. Deutsche Bank has a history of serious compliance. Deficiencies when it comes to global money laundering in the very recent past. Now comes a new revelation from the New York Times deutchebanks own anti money laundering experts flagged multiple suspicious transactions, they were as recent as twenty sixteen and twenty seventeen and involved Trump's business and the one formerly run by his son in law, Jared Kushner among the transactions one, we're money had moved from Kushner companies to Russian individuals. The times wrote that deutchebanks money laundering experts were so concerned they wanted to report these transactions to the US treasury, but supervisors refused to do so. Carrie McCue, deutchebanks spokeswoman said in a statement alert dispositions by investigators undergo a higher level review by qualified staff. Transaction monitoring castle wide net and not all alerts will result in esscalation. She added we take responsibility for compliance very seriously. And that the Bank has increased our anti financial crime, staff and enhanced its controls in recent years. A spokesperson for the Trump organization emailed, the statement, this story is absolute nonsense. We have no knowledge of any flagged transactions with Deutsche Bank. In fact, we have no operating accounts with Deutsche Bank, we sent questions to the Kushner companies, the White House Trump's private banker and lawyers for the Trump's in Jared Kushner, the White House did not have comment. The others didn't respond. Meanwhile, the investigations pile up those Pena's were sent a multiple financial institutions including Georgia Bank, the house, intelligence and financial services committees are hoping to get information on loans. The German Bank gave a to the Trump and Trump organization and vicious presidential harassment. This is all these people do ever Trump earlier today and FOX and friends calling it harassment is the Trump family and the organization, sue deutchebanks and Capital, One two blocks of Pena's. So we've issued subpoenas into your Bank, and we are collecting a lot of the documents that we had requested. And we are reviewing I can only tell you that the investigation came about as the result of the testimony, Michael going. Hello, and welcome to Trump Inc podcast from WNYC, and propublica that digs deep into the secrets of the Trump family business. I'm Andrea Bernstein today on the show Trump and his family's relationship with Georgia Bank, a Bank with a history of problems. They were laundering money for wealthy Russians and people connected to Putin in the Kremlin in a variety of ways for almost the exact time period that they were doing business with Donald Trump. This is David enrich, the finance editor of the New York Times, and all of that money through DOJ Bank was being channeled through the same exact legal entity in the US that was handling the Donald Trump relationship in the us. And so there are a lot of coincidences here. There's a lot of smoke. I have not found any fire, but unfortunately, I do not possess subpoena power. We're going to walk you through all that smoke. Trump Inc, is an open investigation. So we're just going to say wait now. We're still not sure what this all adds up to. What we do know Trump right now about three hundred and fifty million dollars to your Bank more than he does any other financial institution. And so much is happening regarding the Bank so fast. But we decided to lay out what we've learned by digging into Trump's financial deals with the Bank and why his recent loans, raise so many questions questions raised by congress. The new York Attorney General and the bank's own employees. Let's get to know Deutsche Bank it likes to think of itself as a cousin of other global institutions like J, P Morgan Chase or Citi group, but Deutsches recent history, sets it apart from its competitors after the global financial crisis in two thousand eight Deutsche Bank, like all banks was under financial pressure. At the same time, there was more and more wealth, building in Russia and Russians wanted to get it out of the country. Maybe they earned it illegally. Maybe they were just scared that, if they kept their money in Russia, Vladimir Putin would have it seized banks are supposed to run checks to make sure they're not helping criminals move dirty money, and New York state regulators found deutscher didn't do that between two thousand eleven and two thousand fifteen the Bank improperly and covertly helped usher, ten billion dollars out of Russia and into London and New York and it got caught. We spoke to the woman. Man who did the catching my name is Maria Vullo? And I was the superintendent of financial services from early two thousand sixteen through February one of two thousand nineteen, she oversaw banking, and insurance in New York state, just after Trump was inaugurated Vullo signed a consent order with, which a Bank in it Deutsche acknowledged it had allowed bad actors to achieve improper ends. This consent order addresses the man had serious compliance. Deficiencies that spanned deutchebanks global empire. These flaws allowed a corrupt group of Bank traders offshore entities to improperly and covertly transfer more than ten billion dollars out of Russia by conscripting Deutsche Bank operations in Moscow London and New York to their improper purpose. Deutsche Bank paid over six hundred million dollars in penalties in New York, and in the UK and said it would address its deficiencies. Here's how the corrupts game worked it began in Moscow with an order by a shell company to buy a specific amount of stock, but the buyer, one asked for a particular company stock just the amount. They wanted to spend investigators found some prettiest Pacific emails like this one I have a billion ruble today. Misspelled, by the way ruble. But will you be able to find a security for this size? So then what would happen the same day, which a Bank made up Murchison in Moscow, it would make a sale in London of the same amount of stock the trades. Mirrored each other for that reason, they're called mirror trades, ten billion dollars were moved in this way rubles to pound two dollars, possibly dirty money going in clean money coming out. If you're a Bank, you're supposed to have systems in place to prevent trades like this, because it makes it easy for criminals to wash their money through the. Mancial system. So, yes, there was a supervisor on the Moscow desk, which appeared to have been paid a bribe or some other undisclosed compensation to facilitate the schemes employees complained. They were pushed off. No one did anything even when another bag asked which Bank is something going on here. Deutsche Bank responded, essentially, no, no problems here. Instead, they should have elevated the concerns. Yes, and should have raised a red flag again, and we're looking at issues, like know your customer, looking at who these counterparties are, and who's behind the counterparties, if one was going to actually do the proper KYC process, KYC know your customer, this is key underpinning of the financial system away to keep the money launderers terrorists, and other crooks out, or somebody comes to the Bank, who is this person Deutsche Bank, did not have a central? Is know your customer system and its Moscow office Deutsche Bank, had one person as head of compliance, head of legal and anti money laundering, all at the same time, and you certainly need more than one person who is doing three jobs to actually have an effective compliance system. I mean staffing for compliance is essential. And this was woefully inadequate. New York regulators were not able to track them the actual people behind the ten billion dollars in suspicious transactions. And so a very big question remains. What was the reason behind the because money was exchanged, why we still don't know. There's no evidence, these mirror trade deals, involve Trump were telling you about them because in the words of New York regulators, serious compliance deficiencies at the Bank spanned deutchebanks global empire during the same period. Donald Trump was borrowing hundreds of millions of dollars. And because congress is taking a closer look, according to a legal brief fits investigating. Whether Deutsche Bank is doing enough to stop schemes like mirror trading. The brief says this is important in determining the volume of illicit funds that may have flowed through the Bank and whether any touched the accounts, held there by Mr. Trump his family or business.

"So as of now, deutchebanks, still Donald Trump's largest creditor heels about three hundred million dollars and over the years somewhere north of three to four billion dollars has been going through the Trump empire. Maybe a little bit more these latest transactions. It's hard to know. We don't we don't have the details of what was the cause of the, the episodes. But the fact that it occurred relatively recently two thousand fifteen and sixteen is a signal that Trump didn't change his ways, and then he was still relying. You know, we think heavily on this compliant Bank to two facilitate transactions. Jared Kushner had always had already come to the Bank. My way of a private banker who served both of them, Rosemary for Lasik, who joined to Jamaica two thousand six and they were handling. She was handling private wealth side for both Kushner, and for Donald Trump and sort of managing their, their personal portfolios. But also got pretty deeply involved in making loans to Trump kind of usual. She was actually facilitating in two thousand twelve she facilitated a transaction where the private wealth side, actually ended up lending Trump money to pay back the investment side of the Bank time, which the investment side of the bag of vestment banking side had basically given up on Trump is a productive client. You know, you have the, the wealth side, come in and say, no, no, we want to keep him because he's got all his money with us. So you know there's two congressional committees. Now that have subpoenaed documents from deutchebanks, the Maxine Waters financial services and shifts intelligence committee, in the house, Trump is resisting those documents and his filed oppose as opposed releasing information on, you know, sort of privacy grounds, but we may well get to the bottom of this. If we can get Deutsche Bank to actually have to appear before congress and testify about what their relationship consists of. Well, that would that involve the whistleblower testifying. The one that got fine. Well, that would be possible. It depends on you know, a lot of things. But I think it's conceivable that the, the, the right congressional hearing could produce real fireworks here. I think it's it's not out of out of the realm possibility so far. You know, I I've been disappointed in, in congress ability to kind of get to the bottom of this stuff, and there isn't really a kind of Senator Levin, you know, permanent investigations committee type quality to the investigations that have gone on, you know, eleven were still around. He was a Senator from Michigan. Who retired in two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen I think if he were around he would have your Bank senior executives up before congress and raking over the coals about this stuff. No question about that. Did the Democrats don't control? The Senate said they could know prone investigations committee has gone into you, deep sleep since he retired. And since they lost control of the Senate. So, you know, that's one of the things were missing investigative panoply here. You know, I think Deutsche Bank is probably the most important financial institution involved with Trump, at least in the US market. We've seen. There's nothing really comparable in among other Bank. So, and they have a deep relationship, historically with. Russia. And with, you know, eastern bloc countries as well. Austria. The recently involved in the dance Bank scandal. They've got a lot of cases where they've been implicated in turning a blind eye at the very least to high level money laundering. So, you know their, their stock has taken a plummeting as he's problems kind of linger on. They tried to have a merger with Commerce Bank recently, which cratered. And so the Bank is really in in, you know, for prominent German Bank. It's really kind of on the ropes here. Well as a conservative also wrote a book recently, everything that Trump touches dies. So thought Eubanks yet another example of that again. I'm speaking with James Henry, and economists lawyer and investor journalists has written extensively about global banking debt. Crises taxation is an economic development to form a chief economist at McKinsey and company. He's the co founder with David Kay Johnson of the new investigative reporting new service, DC report or. And he also blood Bank as you mentioned, the Danske Bank. This is the Danish Bank has branch in Estonia, funneled, two hundred thirty billion dollars of, of money out of Russia and CBS. The sixty minutes ran a piece about it on Sunday. It's extraordinarily. Isn't when you think about Putin's cousin was one of the people involved that it underscores the fact that money wandering is really a kind of national security problem, we have in the EU in particular, they have what's called an anti money laundering regulation. But it it isn't really doesn't establish common policies across the Member States. And, and so you had German officials taking it for granted that Estonia, another member of the EU and Denmark, which surely not be, you know, permitting nefarious practices because they're members of the. Hugh. But in fact, you know, this is a case, where single correspondent Bank that was operating in a Sony was basically able to drive a gigantic truck to food the loopholes involving the money laundering regulations. And so that's just, you know, sort of turns out, that when you look closely money laundering enforcement in Europe. I mean, Germany and. Eastern bloc. Former eastern bloc members or some of the biggest loopholes in the system. And this is just an example, where that, you know, went into play where a lot of money coming out of Russia was being laundered directly through these European correspondent banks. But why do you think it is that the public simply can't get the hit around particularly Trump supporters? Although I don't think they read the nail times, but still the idea that there's recent revelations about his business, and how he's the biggest loser probably in, in American financial history. At least in one year he lost a billion dollars. So why why doesn't that penetrate? I mean, the banks in Wall Street Bank, lack bullying because of this string of bankruptcies involving casinos normally the house wins in a casino. So it's hard to believe that, that, that you could actually bankrupt a casino, then, of course, the plaza hotel Trump airline and all this other stuff, and then according to the Neo. Times Goldman Sachs at one point is Donald Trump is an example for new employees of precisely the kind of prospective client. They should avoid. I think we have a problem with understanding, the folks who are Trump supporters of, you know, basically, they at some level, don't care about his lack of performance as a business guy. They see him as an iconic class to someone who's sticking it to the system. Who's an outsider, you know, who is willing to share a lot of their, you know, sort of questionable values on subjects like immigrants. And women. And, you know, racism, I mean there's a certain level, which they connect with all that. And I think it makes them cloud over when they think about has his actual the details of his actual performance that it's not clear to me that you, you know, as I mean, Trump and set himself, you could shoot someone Madison Avenue and a lot of people wouldn't care. So, you know, this is not unique to the United States. We have a global movement here for, you know, sort of some people call it populism. I think it's a little soft. We have a fairly authoritarian movement going on across borders. And so if you look at someone like Bolsonaro in Brazil, you find a similar history, you know, of not very successful, business guy, who's got all kinds of wild ideas, and it's quite militant in his rhetoric. Benny is a loyal following because he. Viewed as someone who's gonna shake the system, you know, they're resentful of the fact that the Democrats were in power for eight years under Obama, and promise change. And kind of, you know, look the other way the miseration of the middle class in this country. A lot of people who were, you know, looking to the Democrats for leadership on issues like reforming Wall Street cleaning up the banks, having a fair tax system, didn't get that, from the Obama administration. So I think there's a lot of frustration and really kind of legitimates of sort of right after the deletion, but I've been that's the sort of the transnational basis for this movement has got what we have to take into account. It isn't just about clinging to Trump. Right. But the but people the very people, you're talking about who voted for Trump were attracted to his candidates. Because he's one he said, I'm a successful businessman. I'm not a politician, and I'll do for you guys. What I did for in terms of my successful businesses. Well, that's a complete lies and falling businessmen. They one of the world's worst businessman and the second thing, the second thing he emphasizes. I'm so rich. I don't need to raise money like all these other politician. Remember, shamed them all in the in the Republican primary debates. Yeah. You'll take money, and he says some of you take money from me, and I write the checks that really appealed to people, and of course, it turns out that he's not taking care of these people that voted for him. He's taking care of the billion is, you know, it was just a massive fraud, this guy, and the more you look at the people in his administration, or kind of helping himself to, you know, their positions in power. I mean, latest example, I know of is the secretary of transportation who's been, you know, sort of in cabinet meetings recently. Sort of complaining about reforming the Jones act because, you know, it appears her family has a big shipping business. So and she's back to Mitch McConnell. Right, married. Mitch McConnell, the man not without influence in this administration, but she's sort of single handedly held holding up. You know an effort to, you know, reform I think probably reasonable perform to, you know, relax, the constraints that we have on, you know, I'm non US shipping, but doing it for personal reasons, you know, so that's, that's kind of, you know, outrageous, but we've seen that again and again, within the administration's gotta be one win the story is told it'll all these side deals that have been done here. It's going to be, you know, much more than Trump. That's right in implicated, Elaine Chao job at transportation is to oversee the FAA and she totally.

"The Trump supporters can look at the time line where he said he wouldn't release his taxes. But then he promised he would. And now, you know, he comes up with a story about an audit.

He's keeping the treasury department from complying with the law to release the tax returns fighting g showing each suing deutchebanks, and and well rich you understand why you showing Deutsche Bank because if they release all the materials as to why they made a decision to give a deadbeat alone that no other financial institutions anywhere in the world. Not just in the United States and Wall Street would not give him any credit because he had taken chapter eleven five times. And he was losing money. Handover fish a. Could well lead to demise for him. And for his family. Does want that we, you know, at some point to clear all of these questions up we need to see these tax returns. And we need to see them all report. And I don't understand why anybody out there, whether you support Donald Trump don't support Donald Trump would have a problem with this. We need to see all this stuff. Then. Then if I'm wrong, I am the first one to say, all right. I was wrong. Two in the book, the art of the deal. Did he write all these things of how much money we didn't go got over on us, the taxpayers and the government and just took advantage of loopholes?

"Let's put that on the table, and that will be what voters goat and see if the impeachment fail so bad, and if it doesn't, and you never know. I mean, anything could happen. Maybe the Republicans will rise up and say, jeez, you know, we can't possibly support this guy anymore. I mean, I think it's easier to imagine hell freezing over. But nonetheless, it, you know, it could happen, theoretically. Yes, I mean, maybe that maybe that will happen. But I, you know, I don't think that I think the Democrats are far too timid on this. You know, Trump is a massively unpopular president. And I don't think you know, overreach is an issue here. I really don't I don't you know, what did he under- reach? That is the issue as far as I can tell I mean. Maybe I'm wrong. But I just I honestly just don't feel that I look around and I just go. I don't see I don't see the risk. And I do see a much greater risk in at the end of the day. When all this is said and done of having a presidency and a government system. That's been absolutely wrecked by this man and no going back because nobody tried to stop him. I mean, even if he loses if they don't push this and look at everything that he's done and ensure that the people know what happened, and that, you know, we take steps to make sure never happens again. You know, I bet that could be a greater risk, then then anything, and and I I mean, I think I can't imagine why people see so K not to mention the fact that the Democrats ended up looking like they're playing politics by O J, maybe machine go after Trump because it might hurt us in the election. Why anybody would say that in public? I can't even even if they think they should keep it to themselves. Why you would want that to be your heritage? That's that's how it goes. Let me get sleep on the the Democrats have won a victory in court. I'm taking this from the Washington Post Democrats in congress can move ahead with their lawsuit against president. I saw them. Yeah. On the emoluments clause any thoughts on that. Oh, yeah. I mean, I think this is very very interesting development. I mean, look there, and that's not the only thing. I mean, if you're gonna have litigation now around the debate, you know, Trump is sued deutchebanks for cooperating with a congressional subpoena. You've got a a number of cases coming up through the court center going directly to Trump's corruption. And I really think that this is important. I think it's tremendously important that people take a look at this and it plays. You know? I mean just between you and may in your audience. I think that it plays to the democratic strength. On their own economic message. I mean, this is if you've got to look at this guy, and what he represents the, you know, the one percent, and the the fraudulent sort of behaviors that he's engaged in over all these years and within the White House doing the same thing. I mean, he is not, you know, Trump, maybe the crudest example of that. But he's not alone. I mean, this is this is something that know goes to the very heart of the democratic critique of our economic system and the and the inequality that we see and Trump is a perfect representation of that. So on a political level. I think it's extremely important for them to look at this. And then I'm against the clock. You are absolutely fabulous. I can't wait to talk to begin. Thank you.

Deutsche Bank-Commerzbank merger talks collapse
"This morning after years of flirting with a tie up to German banking giants have called off their merger talks Commerzbank and deutchebanks said they'd ended the merger talks which puts in tatters, the German government's plans to shore up both banks. It's also likely to unleash fresh attempts by other banks to try and scoop up one or both of them a process that could spur the biggest reshuffling of European banking assets.

"Direction right now. You know, what an issue big problem? They're having. I mean, obviously oil is impacting them a lot worse than it's impacting us. So they have this oil crisis going on right now. Major problem with the oils are climbing dramatically all the major oil companies and then to top it off banks or tanking. So banks are getting worse. And it looks like there was a there was a deal trying to be made with Commerce Bank in Germany, and that doesn't look like it's going to going to happen. It's facing an awful lot of resistance from Deutsche Bank's supervisory board. Well, look, I I've been saying that this whole merger between those two got sick banks merging thinking that. Somehow if the if the two sick banks get together that they're going to get. Well, I. You know, instead of being more costly and Justice sick if not more sick because they're going to still be debilitated. So where one Bank is sick. The other Bank might not be sick. And now they're going to bring that to both banks. The problem is this is the number one Bank and the number two bang. So these are the two largest banks in the euro zone. So they're going to come together. They're going to have a Bank so large. There's no way on God's green earth. They're ever going to be allowed to fail. Germany or the European Union's going to continue to bail it out if they need to of course, they understand that. No that but worse yet, you could risk situation where deutchebanks then becomes under the guidance and control of the government and becomes a state run Bank. And that would be a huge problem. Now. One of the things that is. Going to be the unintended consequence of all this. But they're not able they're politicians for the most part. They're not able to think through unintended consequence. But one of the things that is likely to happen is there are going to be some of the more independent wealthier euro nations are going to do what Great Britain's should have already done by now, but as trying to do in that is exit out of the euro-zone altogether. Now, it's easier for Great Britain to do it. Then a lot of others because they never bought into the currency. They've always maintained the pound sterling as the currency. So they didn't get rid of it like some of the other nations. But there are some other nations that have an either particularly in the northern more sovereignly stronger nations that are going to say if this were to happen with the Bank and the state were to get involved with the Bank, which will eventually or maybe they're going to be smarter. Enough to say venture -ly this is going to be a state run institution. And when they're in trouble, am I in Switzerland gonna participate in bailing out a German Bank because they didn't see the problems and didn't do anything about them and merged more problems with those problems to make create this mess. And now, this is going to impact our people and our economy, I understand they don't care about their people. They care about the the the globalist mentality is they care about all the people in the euro zone. Except now there are some European nations that are building walls to prevent the open border. So it's going to really open up a can of worms. But yet apparently they're trying to go through with it. And now doors your Bank supervisory board saying they're against the merger with commerce you Bank. And and and as increased this this. You know, this apprehension has increased over the last few days. So we'll see what happens with that. That'll be interesting. There was also a credit union like Bank. There was trying to merge they were trying to merge with that. Didn't that didn't happen. So we'll see we'll watch that. And we'll see what happens with it. But it is a little bit scary.

Seventy four percent rising the most in more than six years at the moment. Not clear exactly what might be driving that. We did get an upgrade. Trade to buy from Goldman with a price.

You looking at the worst performer in today's session so far as why a card so that is the worst performing stock right now. Well, let me just see if I can get you an opening price on the Dax as well it takes some time to get underway. The Footsie-100 is lower by five tenths of a percent.

"The sun will very senior Putin connected oligarch, a number of people went over to this Russian Bank and help them get their business started. And and then around two thousand ten two thousand eleven Deutsche Bank. Did we lose you? I think we lost our connection here. Could you quickly? Call back. When you say all went through deutchebanks, both in Europe and the United States, and this is an billions of dollars when went through deutchebanks pipes, and this happened to Ben around the same time that don't you Bank lending to Donald Trump was picking up steam, and that's a that may well be coincidence. It's we the evidence of those things being connected is at best circumstantial, there's not any proof. At least that I've seen that. They're that Deutsche Bank was serving as a vehicle for Russian hash to get the Donald Trump. There's tons of evidence Deutsche Bank with serving vehicle for illicit Russian cash flows. But we have not been able to connect that to Donald Trump. And I know that that is one of the many things that a couple of congressional committees are starting to investigate and look I I consider myself to be a pretty good journalists. Unfortunately, I do not have subpoena power. And so. Headed puts limits on the amount of information. I can get out of the Bank or anyone else. These congressional committees. Now that the Democrats are cheering them and have subpoena. Power earn a much better position to answer. Some of those questions. We'll just in the last couple of minutes, the story of Bill Brooks, mid American executive who regarded as the conscience of Deutsche Bank who in twenty fourteen was found hanging in his London apartment, and and his son apparently went on a quest to understand why he's father or if his father killed himself. That's sort of turns this story somewhat into a movie, doesn't it? I mean, I hope so. I really hope that the guy's Bill brotzman as you said was one of the most senior people at the Bank. He was found dead in early two thousand fourteen and very shortly after he died with a few days, I was in London at the time, and I got in touch with his son Val and over the next five years, we built this very strong relationship. And I followed along as Val went on international quest. I figure out what had happened to his dad and why and as part of that Val obtained many hundreds if not thousands of his father's emails and electric documents related to Deutsche Bank. And so that is provided quite a bit of clues about the true nature of this Bank. And some of the problems that were going on inside of it. And it's the type of problems that led to this extraordinary relationship with Donald Trump. And any resolution there? I mean, this is a lot of people have turned on Ted. You got to wait for the book on that? But it's gonna say a lotta people attend up dead in the UK at the hands of Russian assassins. Yeah. No. There's no indication that Russian assassins were involved in it. I think he by all accounts he committed suicide. The question is why is and readers in my book will be able to get that answer.

"That Mr. Trump inflated his total assets when it served his purposes such is trying to be listed amongst the wealthiest people in Forbes and deflated his assets to reduce is real estate taxes. And in his opening remarks. Michael Cohen, literally brought the receipts copies of financial statements from twenty eleven twenty twelve and twenty thirteen that he gave to such institutions such as Deutsche Bank. The documents are summary of Trump's net worth categorizing assets, including cash and properties and liabilities in two thousand thirteen those documents show Trump's net worth nearly doubling thanks to a new four billion dollar line item attributed to something known as brand value. This information provided us inflate the president's asset. I believe these numbers are inflated under questioning you just heard from Representative lacy clay of Missouri. Michael Cohen said Donald Trump lied about how much money he had when it suited his interests president ever provide inflated assets to a Bank in order to help him obtain alone. These documents and others were provided to. Deutsche Bank on one occasion, where I was with them our attempt to obtain money so that we can debate on the Buffalo Bills. But this is not the first time deutchebanks involvement in lending to Donald Trump has come to the attention of congress. In fact, last month, the house intelligence and financial services committees launched an investigation into the president's dealings with the German financial giant. So what is the house looking for? And what does Michael Collins testimony reveal about deutchebanks relationship with President Trump? That's where we begin today. This is the takeaway, I'm tansy Nevada, and I'm joined now by two journalists who've been covering Deutsche Bank and its relationship with President Trump closely Jenny Strasbourg is a senior correspondent for European finance at the Wall Street Journal, welcome to the takeaway, Jenny. Thank you, very much and David enrich is finance editor at the New York Times. And he's writing a book on deutchebanks and Trump perfect timing. David welcome to the takeaway. Thank you, Jenny. Let's start with you for those of us here who are less familiar with Deutsche Bank and give us who are they and what is their presence in the United States? Sure. So they've been around for since the late eighteen hundreds started as a German Bank to serve German corporates. And really they came onto the scene in the United States with their deal in nineteen ninety eight to by Bankers Trust, which put them on the Wall Street radar and with and with that grew their aspirations to take. On the likes of Goldman Sachs and Bank of America and the big investment banks. And then that became the source of many a regulatory issue for the Bank, particularly during and since the financial crisis. And it's no exaggeration to say that they're they're future has become a huge question, Mark. But the Trump topic has is front and center there, obviously. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, this David let's talk a little bit about that. You're literally writing the book on this. How far back does President Trump's relationship with Deutsche Bank? Oh, it goes back. It really starts in earnest in the late ninety s around the time as Jenny said that deutchebanks developed these really strong aspirations to be a proper US investment Bank compete with Wall Street and Deutsche Bank, reviewed Donald Trump as the perfect type of person to do business with because he was a guy who had defaulted on. His debts to other banks and therefore other banks weren't willing to take the risk of doing business with him Deutsche Bank needed a foothold in the United States. And so it needed to do business with people and with institutions that other banks were not willing to touch with a ten foot pole Donald Trump fit perfectly and off to the races. They went David do. We have any sense of how much money Trump has borrowed so far from Deutsche Bank, and whether any of that is still outstanding. And Trump over the years over the twenty years between one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and now borrowed well over two billion dollars. That's billion with a b billion with a beauty huge number, especially given what we know about the limited amount. We know about Trump's net worth which is he says, he's a billionaire that's far from clear that is actually true. So the fact that he's borrowed over fifteen or twenty years billions of dollars from Deutsche Bank is extraordinary currently allowed that's been repaid or in some cases defaulted on by Trump. So it's not still outstanding. As of the time he entered the White House, though, he still owed more than three hundred million dollars to make. It was his biggest creditor, and that's really really extraordinary thing to think about the president of the United States is deeply deeply in debt to a foreign institution, Jenny. I wanna bring you back in here because we're talking about Deutsche Bank today mostly because of Michael Collins testimony yesterday yesterday, he supplied records, outlining President Trump's efforts to secure a loan from Deutsche Bank from twenty eleven to two thousand thirteen Michael Cohen said that this loan was part of a failed effort to buy the Buffalo Bills are to buy a share in the bills. Ginny would Deutsche Bank have known that President Trump's statements had been inflated as Michael Collins suggested in his testimony yesterday. Well, I mean, it was certainly dramatic and exciting to hear from an in a longtime insider, we covered a secret deposition in the lawsuit in two thousand seven that where Trump admit acknowledged, the he was no stranger to inflating his property values. Said and I'll quote from our article, I think everybody does who wouldn't now this is a private deposition, and he said even verbally he inflates, the value of properties in general, not beyond reason. So this is not the first time. This topic has come up and this also came up quite a bit in the testimony with Cohen yesterday. The House Financial Services committee is potentially going to investigate this. Now that there's a democratic majority your thoughts. David, well, I think the holy grail here for investigators in congress in for many of us in the media is the Russia connection and as Jenny said Deutsche Bank has gotten a lot of trouble for money laundering for Russians. What investigators journalists like me and Jenny wants to know is is Deutsche Bank, the nexus between Donald Trump and Russia did money from Russia. Go to go to Donald Trump by way of Deutsche Bank. We don't know the answer to that yet. Journalists have been trying for years to figure that out, but we do not have subpoena power House Democrats now do and so I think we're going to get some. Answers. So David we just mentioned the potential for a house investigation. I'm wondering if you can tell us what threads you think they will follow. I think the big thread is whether Deutsche Bank has been a channel for money to elicit come to Donald Trump over the years from Russia. And the reason this is interesting is that Deutsche Bank for many years was a pioneer of lending in Russia and of building relationships with large Putin connected, Kremlin, connected, banks. And so the rumor that is circulated for a couple of years. Now is that part of the reason to the Bank was willing to take such risks and lend to Donald Trump, and no one else would is that someone in Russia or something in Russia was providing them some sort of protection against the risk of Trump default in and that's unproven. It's unconfirmed. God knows I've been trying and I know Jenny has been too, and we just don't know if it's true. But there's a lot of the questions that people like, Maxine. Waters who's the chairman of the House Financial Services committee and Adam Schiff, who's the chairman of house intelligence have been asking mega quite clear that this is exactly what they're going for. And or at least one of the things that they're gunning for and I don't know what they're going to find. But they have a much better chance of finding that out with subpoena power. And with some of the really serious investigators have they've brought on recently than mere mortals lake me, David enriches finance editor at the New York Times working on a book about deutchebanks and Trump and Jenny Strasbourg is senior correspondent for European finance for the Wall Street Journal. Thanks to you both. Thank you so much, and we should add we reached out to Deutsche Bank for comment on its lending to.

"Sources say the spring and private equity giant Apollo on border provides premier with additional financial firepower right now premiers up one and a half percent, Chevron is up one tenth of one percent. That's a Bloomberg business flash. I'm Greg Jarrett. You're listening to Bloomberg markets with Lisa Abramowicz in pulse. Weenie on Bloomberg radio. Deutchebanks was one of the only major banks that would continue to lend to the Trump organization after a series of bankruptcies, which created a sort of conundrum for the German lender. When President Trump won the US election. Joining us here to talk a little bit about the deliberations inside of Deutsche Bank at the time and the implications today Shahir syrup poor he is a reporter for Bloomberg news joining us here in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studios, so Shaheen can you lay out just what was happening in two thousand sixteen and how Deutsche Bank was discussing it. Sure. So in the aftermath of twenty sixteen election Deutsche Bank, discover that it had, you know, what would appear to be a problem on its hands where it had lent a considerable amount of money to the incoming president in his company, and those loans we're going to be or start coming to during a hypothetical second term, and they had to confront the risk of. Well, what happens if he defaults the company defaults, and we have to go after. After assets. What what does that what kind of situations that create for us, so internally add your Bank at the highest level, Bank executives discussed this possible hypothetical risk and as part of their deliberations, they discussed extending the repayment term for his loans. So they wouldn't mature until after hypothetical second term now the Bank ultimately decided against this. They didn't change the terms of his loans, and instead they decided they won't do anymore business with them. So the current status of the business between Deutsche Bank, President Trump in his companies as I understand it. It's not the corporate investment Bank making the loans, that's the private wealth management that. That's right. That's right. So the investment Bank had been doing business with the president or with Mr. Trump and his company. Deck more than decade ago. They headline actually considerable amount of money to Mr. Trump to construct this tower in Chicago now issue is he defaulted on the loan. There were dueling lawsuits. Trump's lawsuit against deutscher accused them of basically having having started the global financial crisis back in two thousand eight or being part of the banks that brought that brought that into existence and so the investment Bank decided we're not going to do any more business with this guy, but the private Bank in the wealth management decided they wanted keep his business, and they started extending credit, so Eric Trump, which is who is one of the sons of President Trump said this story is complete nonsense. We are one of the most under leveraged real estate companies in the country. Speaking, of course of the Trump administration. How does this factor into the Trump organization today as well as deutchebanks sort of a perilous relationship with the president? Already is an existence with respect to these loans. That are outstanding. Let me for the Trump organization. Eric is right in that. They don't have a ton of leverage that we can see the loans that they take out against their properties when weighed against the value of the properties, and a lot of cases, it's pretty small, you know, they'll have a building valued at like, let's say ex and the loan will be for like a tenth of X, which is not typical when it comes to commercial real estate developers, and they own a lot of their properties free and clear. Now, the issue is they have a tremendous tremendous amount of debt owed to deutscher as well as ladder capital in Deutsche that relationship has one thing that Democrats in congress really want to spend the next two years going over with a fine tooth comb because they've spent the last two years in the minority. They haven't been able to dig into this relationship, and they think there's something there. And that's what they're gonna do. What what do they think is there there is this, you know, no one will say this explicitly? But if you read between the lines they? These are two separate threads that they're chasing on one hand. They think of Deutsche Bank as a Bank that has gone to problems when it comes to money laundering controls. It's so that's that's one thing. The second thing is Deutsche Bank has a lot of business in Russia. The third thing is Deutsche Bank has done a lot of business with President Trump. Now are those three things connected in some way. That's kind of the overarching question that they want to answer. Okay. So that's why we're going to be getting a lot of news about Deutsche Bank and President Trump from here on out right because this is scrutinizing this and probably tripling it out to get a sense of some kind of illicit relationship. But as far as what we know now, there is no evidence to that effect crabs. No evidence whatsoever. Okay. And to not public at least not public evidence. And Eric Trump's point it is not an over leveraged company at this point. That's facing bankruptcy or anything like that. No. I mean when you look at Trump organization loans that have been securitising to C N B S, they're making their payments on time. There's no delinquency of any kind and the amounts of they borrowed are very low relative to the value those buildings. If don't your Bank is not doing new business with the Trump organization who is that is equally question. We don't have that ex-. That's next on early answer. That's the next story. Okay. Because I've the real estate business a business that obviously needs big chunks of capital. But I'm guessing there's also revolving credits at the need to maintain properties do upgrades and things like that. And that typically means external financing somewhere. That's right and a lot of these loans. I mean, some of their loans are interesting with balloon payments at maturity, and the there Pat, the company's past practice has been to refi those loans when it's nearing maturity. So for a lot of these loans from ladder from deutscher. They come do the hypothetical. Second-term question is what happens so they pay off those balances or they seek financing from other lenders, and what kind of risks does that entail. Both lenders for the company for the White House. Yup. Excellent shaheen. Thanks very much Shaheen poor Bloomberg reporter for Bloomberg news in our Bloomberg eleven three go studios. Thank you so much for this. I'm sure there'll be more reporting on this to come up. We look forward to that. Now, let's head toward ninety nine one studios in Washington DC.

"Deutchebanks contracted for the eighth straight quarter complicating chief executive Christian savings turnaround plans this as a report continues to build about a merger. Lindbergh's Mattis spoke to the company's CFO, James malt, say the results were in line with the streets expectations, certainly informed by the context as we've seen through. Our peers earnings reports that the industry faced in in the fourth quarter, and with that in line performance, we weren't able as we'd hoped to stabilize revenues on a relative basis but being down two percent year on year in light of the backdrop that was the industry's backdrop, and frankly, some of the idiosyncratic stresses that we faced we thought was reasonable for performance. We continue to work now on the stabilization and growth of our revenues. We think we've built a lot in terms of foundational improvements in the company that that will carry over two thousand nineteen. The whole street saw drop and trading revenues, but Deutsche Bank had specific issues the rates, for example in the quarter. How much of the drop do you think was the industry and how much of the drop was deutchebanks Pacific? We'll take two things one is in terms of business makes we're we're obviously a leading rates and also leading credit house and those two areas were among the most affected in the market so vaction in the fourth quarter. The Ray did absolutely impact our business especially in in December. It's always hard to measure how much but clearly being in the headlines in that way, is is unhelpful to client confidence. We've gone some way to restoring that and stabilizing again as reflected perhaps in CDS spreads and our credit spreads. That's encouraging. But I think there's more work to do to communicate the nature of of these issues, and how we want to resolve how much has the Danske Bank issue affected you and how much do you expect it? The cost of this year. Well, it's in the papers a lot. And of course, again that affects both employees and client confidence around the name. We're seeking to put it behind us quickly as possible by explaining our perspective of the facts cooperating, of course, with all increase that are out there. But as we've said a number of times in the public as we look at the fact pattern and research our engagement with with the dance Goto Estonia branch, we see Deutsche Bank acting responsibly with its against its obligations as a correspondent Bank. And we hope that has the authority is go through in their increased they'll see that fact pattern as we do we've not incremented our legal reserves or contingent liability. Probably the best reflection of our financial if you like an accounting view of the risks attached to these matters in the fourth quarter. And that's intended to signal something about how we see the fact patterns in. What are reviews tell us? Have you been contacted by the commission regards to new sovereign bond collusion probe? We have not. So you're not one of the banks that the European Union's looking. We have not been contacted by the commission. Okay. Cost cuts were better than expected. And indeed, you raising basically your target for cost cuts in twenty one thousand nine hundred is that difficult to do at the same time as you're trying to boost revenue that's clearly been been the market's concern, and why it is that we went through the reshaping in. But also, we achieved some notable strategic milestones in our asset management DWI and also in our personal and commercial banking business in two thousand eighteen it was a year of tremendous transition change in the organization, which again is part of the foundation that we feel very optimistic about as we as it carries us into two thousand nineteen. So we've we've made enormous progress, and and we feel confident about that. We we have moved away essentially completed the reshaping as it impacts our front office staff as it impacts clients at this point, we will continue to work to drive a fishing sees in our platform. Absolutely. That'll be a multi year effort. And we think is there now that we can bring the billion euros of additional savings to the bottom line as we've announced in line with our revised downwardly revised hearted. You. Boosted revenue in the global transaction Bank. Five percent. I think the private and commercial Bank was to two percent. He is. Is the mix solid now or are there still areas that you want to tweak the mix of solid? We've we've talked about growing stable businesses. We have excellent businesses that went represented well over half of our of our revenues, particularly PCB private commercial banking, which is which grew strongly in Germany, particularly but also in international franchise and global transaction banking, which is you say grew five percent year on year in the fourth quarter. We see momentum in those businesses among other things incidentally in lone grove. We had significant loan growth of over twenty billion euros in the year. And of course, loan growth is a leading indicator for future revenues and an indicator of the health of the franchise in those businesses. CFO James von multi speaking to Bloomberg's Matt Miller, not Israel's ruling party Likud hose primaries on Tuesday as the general election fast approaches, but the main challenges for the current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu comes from eyesight bennigan's, former Israeli military chief is popular has set himself up as the anti BBC seeking to defy him and deny him his fifth ten at office. Meanwhile, Israel's attorney general rejected a request from Netanyahu to delay. The decision on his possible indictment on corruption charges until after the April vote. Joining us from Tel Aviv is Middle East politics reporter Jonathan Jonathan good to see this morning Netanyahu is running for his fifth term. We know that the polls show him at pretty much neck and neck with his Ponant. But could it be the end of Netanyahu? What are you reading? Well, I really could right now. The polls show him running even more or less with Benny Ganz penny Gaunt's is absolutely new phenomenon. He was cooling off for three years since he stepped down as the chief of staff, and he looks very good on television. He's been untested as far as debating Tanya who that may come up during the during the campaign. But right now people are thinking, maybe is time for an alternative. Tunnel that alternative dance in the form of a former general sorry? He I mean, he was one of the top generals. What else can you tell me about him? He photographs quite well. There isn't a whole lot more. He was in uniform for forty years. He's a paratrooper commander. He led the the the war in Gaza. Four or five years ago? And. He presents himself as a as a tough guy. That is very attractive two two Israelis, and whether he can be a diplomat. That's really right now. We'll see we'll see what he can. What convinces rallies about? Benjamin Netanyahu has got investigations. A number of areas, and it looks like his request to delay. Those investigations has run into sort of cold water. Well, that's true. It looks like the prosecutors are nipping at his heels. But as far as the election goes, he's he's at run them. There is a good possibility that the attorney general Mandal blade will issue a draft indictment, but even that gives Netanyahu a chance to respond, and that's going to take several months even up to a year. So he has some breathing room. And he says it fits it's not even happening. He's turned the. He turned the gun around. And he's firing at the the prosecutors saying that they have no case. Okay. Let let's see whether there's any validity to that Middle East politics reporter Johnson Fettes, it fetes get fed tiger from Tel Aviv. More on that election as it draws closer. Not coming up. Also that.
Deutsche Bank queried by U.S. House panels on Trump ties
"But there's this anecdote you guys have about Trump Deutsche Bank. And that's in the piece where you mentioned that you say to win financing from Deutsche Bank to build a Trump hotel in Chicago, Mr. Trump, personally, guaranteed forty million dollars of the debt when he could not make his payments during the two thousand eight financial crisis. Deutchebanks executives were open to granting him more time to repay the loan. Thanks to each Bank. But before a compromise could be reached Trump, flip the script. He filed a lawsuit and argued the Bank had helped cause the worldwide financial meltdown that essentially rendered Mr. Trump unable to make his debt payments at the time to Bank, call the lawsuit. Quote, classic Trump the Bank eventually settled with Trump saving him from having to pay the forty million dollars. Mr. Trump expressed his gratitude to the lawyer who fought on his behalf by what not fully paying his Bill. He left me with some costs said, the lawyer, Stephen Slesinger with friends like these Maggie who needs enemies. I I wonder if that behavior reminds you of twenty seventeen when Trump basically cut the short-term spending deal with Pelosi and Schumer, aka cryan, Chuck Schumer and Mansi Nancy Pelosi. I mean, do Republicans should Republicans be looking at this example, or generally his behavior of no alliances really that you should depend on it anytime as as a cautionary tale. No, I think if they wanted to look at it a cautionary tale that that that ship has sailed I think that they could have attended as a cautionary tale awhile ago. They've known the cautionary tale exists, and yet they have continued to walk out on tree branches for this president only to have him saw off, you know, a little time. Later, for instance, current shutdown. Remember this happened after Mitch McConnell passed a continuing resolution through the Senate because he was told that the president was going to sign it. And then it was, you know, blown up in the house or by the president's allies who got him to abruptly pull out of it. So he has done this over and over again, and you'd constantly here in twenty teen concern, especially from Republicans in the house in marginal districts that the president was going to try to push them to take positions that were very problematic for them. And then he might not be there later, and so one of the things that I think the term is holding the bag only one of the things that people who have done congressional negotiations have said to me over and over again is that the key piece here is consistency. And it's a little less significant business, but consistency in negotiations is always really important because you know, who's sitting on the other side of the table. You know that you can trust what they're saying. You know that the fulcrum is not gonna shift, you know, suddenly, and that's just not the case with him. So. So it's all over the place people in the hill doesn't even know who they're supposed to be negotiating with there's Pence. There's there's Mick Mulvaney. There's Jared Kushner there's the president himself throwing himself in. Sometimes this is this is not how you do it. There is a similarly antagonistic story from the late eighties. When Trump tries to develop Manhattan's west side rail yards, and he gets into a public brawl with then Mayor Ed Koch who he had been asking for a seven hundred million dollar tax break. This is from reporting in Bloomberg at one point Trump's at the mayor had quote, no talent and only moderate intelligence. This is a I mean, you could really use that same phrase for any number of Trump's adversaries in the present day and Trump said that the mayor should be impeached. Ed Koch would do everybody a huge favor if you would get out of office, and they started all over again, the bluster and the the throwing people who you need things from under the bus behavior is I it's amazing. To actually see it play out in the eighties. And here we are in twenty eighteen and I feel like the exact same thing is happening all over again. It's reasonable to argue that we are living in a Tom Wolfe novel for the capital actually, interviewed him
