Deutsche Bank's risky corporate loan pile towers over peers

German lender has one-quarter of all high-risk corporate loans reported by EU big banks

Deutsche Bank has the most risky corporate loans of its European peers, Risk Quantum analysis shows.

At end-2017, the German lender disclosed €9 billion of exposures to corporate loans with probabilities-of-default (PD), as calculated using its own internal ratings-based models, of between 10% and 100%. This represents one-quarter of the €35 billion of high-risk exposures across the eight EU global systemically important banks (G-Sibs).

The average PD of Deutsche's high-risk loans was 18.9%
