But the bank's top managers are foregoing their annual bonuses for 2017 after coming under fire for awarding big incentive payouts even though Germany's largest bank lost money last year.

"Variable compensation for the whole bank will be somewhat over 2 billion euros," Deutsche board member Karl von Rohr told news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA).
