Qatar exploring to raise stake in Deutsche Bank

According to FactSet data, Al Thani Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabor, the former prime minister of Qatar, owns a 10% stake in Deutsche Bank. The lender has informally spoken to potential anchor investors, including new and existing shareholders, to back a possible capital increase.

"There is far too much talk about Deutsche Bank", Schaeuble told reporters.

The capital injection that has been discussed is in the low single-digit billions of euros, the paper said, adding that Berlin welcomed the private-sector intervention.

The meeting was meant to negotiate the multi-billion-dollar settlement the bank will have to pay to resolve alleged misconduct arising from its dealings in residential-mortgage backed securities that led to the 2008 financial crisis, according to a Bild am Sonntag report. A spokeswoman for Deutsche Bank declined to comment. Shares in Deutsche Bank have been seesawing after a fall of almost 45 per cent this year as the lender prepares to settle a hefty fine from U.S. regulators.

The debate revolves around whether the firm should retain its status as a universal financier-that provides investment banking, asset- and wealth management and retail while shrinking fixed income and cutting costs to muddle through-or if it should retreat to its roots of being a German and European corporate lender and retail bank, jettisoning the investment bank.

On Friday, the minister said it was telling that the Deutsche board had announced plans to change its business model and shed some 4,000 jobs this year alone: "It shows that Deutsche Bank wants to react to this risk itself".

Deutsche Bank may also face a penalty in a money-laundering probe tied to its Russian Federation operations, with analysts at Barclays Plc speculating it could cost them as much as 2 billion euros.

Most banks will be called in just days before any deal, which will likely be structured as a fully underwritten rights issue with banks guaranteeing to take on shares to sell on to a mix of investment funds, pension funds and hedge funds. That is about the maximum amount in discounted shares Deutsche Bank can sell without needing shareholder approval, the people said. However, at the same time, some of Germany's top industrial companies have revived a decades-old network to discuss taking a direct stake in the lender as a way to help shield the bank, one executive at a large DAX-listed company has said.
