Regulatory challenges affect credit rating

In 2013, bank ratings worldwide were again closely reviewed by the rating agencies as rising regulatory requirements and demanding capital markets influenced the performance of the sector. Standard and Poor’s downgraded Deutsche Bank AG’s long-term rating by one notch to A from A+, referring to mounting regulatory challenges and increased industry risk for banks with large-scale capital market operations.

Deutsche Bank’s A+ and A2 long-term credit ratings were affirmed by Fitch and Moody’s, respectively. In December 2013, Moody’s assigned a negative outlook to Deutsche Bank’s rating as they perceive the completion of the bank’s Strategy 2015+ targets to be ambitious.
