Central Bank First Deputy Chairman Sergey Shvetsov said that on the sidelines of Finnopolis 2015 conference.

"It will have no effect as the volume of business is defined not by the number of intermediate parties but by the number of investors. They [the investors - TASS] will simply be redistributed," Shvetsov said.

He added that the situation will not influence the process of setting up the International financial center in Russia.

As TASS reported Deutsche Bank announced curtailing of its Russian Corporate Banking and Securities (CB&S) business in Russian within the framework of reviewing the geography of its presence.

Such a decision was made to reduce complexity of processes, costs, risks and capital use, the bank said.
