FRANKFURT Jan 31 Germany's flagship lender
Deutsche Bank does not see a need to raise its
capital to meet new U.S. bank rules, Chief Financial Officer
Stefan Krause said in an analyst call on Thursday.
He added that issuing contingent convertibles or so-called
Co-Co bonds is one option under discussion to comply with U.S.
The U.S. Federal Reserve last year proposed tightening the
leash on foreign banks to protect taxpayers from having to bail
them out. The plan would force foreign banks to group all their
subsidiaries under a holding company, subject to the same
capital standards as U.S. holding companies.
