The hike is aimed at improving Deutsche's capital ratio, providing a buffer for future regulatory requirements and supporting business growth. It should increase the bank's common equity tier 1 ratio, a key measure of a bank's ability to withstand an economic shock, to 11.8 percent, up from 9.5 percent at the end of March this year.
"We have taken decisive steps to protect Deutsche Bank against known capital challenges, sharpen our competitive edge, and accelerate investments in growth in all our business divisions," said Jürgen Fitschen and Anshu Jain, co-chief executive officers at Deutsche, in a news release on Thursday.
The new shares are expected to be listed on the German stock exchange and the New York Stock Exchange from June 25.
