Deutsche Bank AG - Analyst/Investor Day

Let me jump to the next conclusion, what does it mean to our industry? What does it mean to Deutsche Bank at the end of the day? We'll see here that on the right-hand side, the implications can be brought into various categories, some write it as pressure, unprofitability, which in turn, results in the need to address the way we use resources in order to maintain the sufficient level of profitability given the lack of growing on the revenue fund across the board.

We will also have to look at the need to look at fundamental business structures, i.e., we have to answer at the end of the day how, given this environment, we can still develop a client-centric model and retain an attractive level of profitability and, by doing so, maintain at any point in time adequate capitalization and liquidity levels.

To make matters worse, our industry is faced with an unprecedented negative judgment the public at large has arrived at. This is something that is of great concern to us because it's very obvious that our future is very much dependent on enjoying the trust and confidence of our client base, in particular, but of the public at large as well. Without that, you will see all sorts of sentiments coming up. And maybe particularly here in Germany, we are seeing witnesses for that attitude emerging every day. And we'll have to fight that development because it's going to be detrimental in the long run.

So against this environment, I think it's wise to anticipate that we'll see history repeating itself. Because whenever we had crisis in the past decades, we can go back to 1928, we have seen that the number of participants is shrinking dramatically. And at the same time, we see consolidation efforts that will produce winners and losers. The most recent examples, not to follow obviously, are in Japan. The Asian financial crisis has produced similar developments.
