Deutsche Bank set to slash 18,000 jobs including in NY

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - Germany's struggling Deutsche Bank says it will cut 18,000 jobs by 2022 in a sweeping restructuring aimed at restoring consistent profitability and improving returns to its shareholders.

The Frankfurt-headquartered bank said Sunday it would drop its stock sales and trading unit as part of a plan to exit more volatile investment banking activities.

It says it will also bundle 74 billion euros of assets into a separate unit for disposal, freeing capital reserves to pay for the restructuring.

The job cuts would reduce the workforce to 74,000. The restructuring intends to take out 6 billion euros in costs.

Deutsche Bank has struggled with regulatory penalties and fines, weak profits, high costs and a falling share price.
