Deutsche Bank Private & Commercial Bank (PCB) has posted a pre-tax profit of €220m for the third quarter of 2018, a 37% slump compared to €349m in the previous year.
The division’s quarterly net revenues were €2.52bn, a fall of 3% from €2.6bn in the corresponding quarter of 2017.
The bank attributed the decline to the non-recurrence of a positive effect of €108m from Concardis’ divestment.
Noninterest expenses at the unit were €2.21bn, a 2% rise from €2.16bn last year.
Deutsche Asset Management reported a pre-tax profit of €143m for the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of 27% from €197m a year earlier.
Net revenues at the division dropped 10% to €567m on a year-on-year basis. The bank said that the decrease was driven by the non-recurrence of an insurance recovery of €52m associated with a real-estate fund.
