“This is a decision made by a company. There was no surprise effect for me,” she said at the conclusion of a Group of Seven (G7) summit in Bavaria, when asked whether the change had surprised her.

“I don’t want to comment further. I want Deutsche Bank to be successful and it must make its own decisions like all other companies in Germany.”
