Investors concerned about Deutsche Bank fundraising

There is intense speculation in the investment markets that Deutsche Bank, one of the largest banks in Europe, is set to announce a fundraising of around €9 billion. This comes only hours after the ECB suggested that European banks may well need to strengthen their balance sheets ahead of what could be a very tricky period for the European economy.

One of the main concerns is the fact that if Deutsche Bank, one of the largest banks around, believes now is the time to strengthen its balance sheet then potentially we could see a whole raft of similar fundraisings across Europe. This will test investor confidence in not only the investment markets but also the European economy in the short to medium term and could lead to volatile share prices especially in the financial industry.

While there is no suggestion that Deutsche Bank is in any way troubled by the current economic climate it would make sense to strengthen the balance sheet where possible and ready itself for any potential problems ahead. However, with investors in their current mood this could well fuel concerns about a possible double dip recession not only in Europe but with regards to the worldwide economy.
