Deutsche Bank Tackles One Scandle and Moves on to the Next

Deutsche Bank AG, which is being probed over whether it helped investors illegally transfer billions of dollars out of Russia, said an internal review provided no indications that it breached sanctions in the country.

An internal investigation by the bank found “deficiencies” in the bank’s systems and controls that are being adressed, the bank said in a memo sent to employees Friday.

The Russian probe is among the remaining issues for Chief Executive Officer John Cryan, after the bank on Friday agreed to pay $7.2 billion to settle a separate probe in the U.S. over its role in the sales of toxic debt before the 2008 financial crisis. The initial demand of $14 billion by the U.S. triggered concerns over Deutsche Bank’s capital position and its ability to pay coupons on some of its bonds.
