Deutsche Bank faces investigation for potential money-laundering lapses: Report

Shares in Germany's biggest bank were indicated to open 2.2% down on June 20.

US federal authorities are investigating whether Deutsche Bank AG complied with laws meant to stop money laundering and other crimes, the New York Times reported on June 19, citing seven people it said were familiar with the inquiry.

Shares in Germany's biggest bank were indicated to open 2.2% down on June 20, according to brokerage Lang & Schwarz.

The investigation includes a review of the German bank's handling of so-called suspicious activity reports that its employees prepared about possibly problematic transactions, including some linked to President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, the Times reported.


The investigation into Deutsche Bank is one element of several separate but overlapping government examinations into how illicit funds flow through the US financial system, the Times reported, adding that several other banks are also being investigated.

Earlier this month, a group of US Senate Democrats urged the Federal Reserve to investigate Deutsche Bank's relationship with Trump and Kushner.

Reuters could not independently confirm the report.

A Deutsche Bank spokesperson declined comment on the Times report, but said: "We remain committed to cooperating with authorized investigations."
