Deutsche Bank’s Opaque Loans From Brazil to Italy Hide Risk

“Deutsche Bank AG (DBK), perennially among the top three in global credit markets, made billions of dollars of loans to banks worldwide since 2008 and accounted for them in a way that obscured their continuing risk to investors. Germany’s largest bank managed to lend to firms from Brazil to Italy while making the transactions disappear from its balance sheet, even though it still is owed the money, according to four people with knowledge of the practice and internal documents provided to Bloomberg News. In the no-balance-sheet transactions, Deutsche Bank received the collateral, sold it and used the cash to make the loan.”
