Shares in Deutsche Bank slipped nearly 2% on Thursday morning following reports the German bank could face legal action over a $20 billion Russian money-laundering scheme.
The Guardian, on Wednesday, published a confidential internal report in which the bank admits fears over "significant disciplinary action" from U.S. and U.K. regulators, conceding that the scandal had hurt its "global brand" and was likely to cause "client attrition" and a decline in market value.
Deutsche Bank is said to have been implicated in a massive money-laundering scheme, called the Global Laundromat, The Guardian reported. The scheme, used by Russian criminals with ties to the Kremlin and the old KGB and FSB, involved moving money into the western financial system between 2010 and 2014. According to the Guardian report, the cash involved could total $80 billion.
The bank could face fines, legal action and the possible prosecution of 'senior management' for its role in the scheme.
A spokesman for Deutsche Bank declined to comment on the ongoing investigations, but told CNBC Thursday: 'Deutsche Bank remains committed to providing appropriate information to all authorized investigations. "
