Deutsche Bank will cut 18,000 jobs over three years as part of a radical reorganisation of the German bank.

It will also report a second quarter loss of €2.8bn to partly pay for the shake-up, which will significantly shrink its investment banking business.Deutsche Bank is yet to specify exactly where jobs will be lost.

But it said it intends to completely exit activities related to the buying and selling of shares, much of which is conducted in London and New York.

With almost 8,000 staff, London is the home to its biggest trading operation.

Deutsche Bank said it will cut its global workforce to 74,000 by 2022 and that the restructure will cost €7.4bn over the next three years.

“Today we have announced the most fundamental transformation of Deutsche Bank in decades,” chief executive Christian Sewing said.

“This is a restart for Deutsche Bank… In refocusing the bank around our clients, we are returning to our roots and to what once made us one of the leading banks in the world,” he said.

The reorganisation of the business follows the failure of merger talks with rival Commerzbank in April.

The German government had supported the tie-up, hoping it would create a national champion in the banking industry.

However, both banks concluded that the deal was too risky, fearing the costs of combining might have outweighed the benefits.
