DB earnings call for the period ending September 30, 2021.
Deutsche Bank's (DB) Q3 earnings reflect provision decline and elevated non-interest expenses.
Deutsche Bank is gingerly hiring new staff at its investment bank, which has become its biggest revenue generator https://www.reuters.com/business/deutsche-bank-posts-better-than-expected-q3-net-profit-2021-10-27, as it pursues new revenue opportunities. In the first year-on-year increase in front-office staff at the investment bank since Germany's largest lender embarked on a restructuring in 2019, Deutsche said on Wednesday the number had risen in the third quarter by 4% to 4,325 people. While relatively small for a bank with more than 84,000 staff, the return to hiring is significant for Deutsche after years of losses, retrenchment and layoffs.
