Deutsche Bank scraps plans to sell Indian retail and wealth biz

17 April, 2018

Deutsche Bank  has ended talks to sell its Indian retail and wealth management business to private lender IndusInd Bank Ltd, two people with knowledge of the matter said on Tuesday.

The German bank is now considering retaining the business under its new chief executive, Christian Sewing, said the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity. They noted that a final decision has not yet been made.

A Deutsche Bank spokesman declined to comment. Bloomberg first reported the news earlier on Tuesday.

Deutsche Bank has been active in India since the beginning of the 1980s. It employs more than 12,000 people in the country, though many work in IT support rather than in classical banking activities.

The German lender sold its Indian mortgage business in 2010 and its asset management business five years later.
