Deutsche’s Bank difficult relationship with the German establishment is long-standing. Despite carrying its nationality in its name, it no longer regards itself as a German bank, and these days employs more people – and makes more money – abroad than at home. To compound matters, Mr Ackermann is not even German. Despite reasonable links to government, advisers say Mr Ackermann is obliged to maintain a degree of distance in his political and corporate networking in order to avoid being drawn into profitable patriotic business.
Morgan Stanley believes the political outcry over the Deutsche Bank jobs saga carries a resonant message. ‘This kind of political interference is derailing capitalism in Germany’, says Mr Williams. ‘It is social engineering. And it is delaying much-needed consolidation in German banking. It is a big deterrent for potential acquirers from abroad.’ For Deutsche Bank, in particular, seniour managers believe to debacle has exacerbated the ‘German discount’ attached to the share price. That is the last thing Mr Ackermann needs as he tries to play catch-up with his international rivals’.

1)    Deutsche Bank was good on terms with the establishment until recently.
2)    Mr Ackermann doesn’t maintain close ties with the establishment so his company doesn’t have to get involved in loss-making business.
3)    Mr Williams believes that the government is interrupting plans to make German banks stronger.
4)    Mr Williams thinks foreign buyers are becoming more interested in German banks.
5)    Top management in Deutsche Bank feel that the political situation is helping to increase the bank’s share price.
