Deutsche Bank have reported a small net profit of €61m in the second quarter on Wednesday, whilst revenue growth outweighed the increased loan losses amid the pandemic.
This is compared to a loss of €3.1bn in the year earlier quarter, when the bank was restructuring which saw large expenses.
The bank said they cut their cost base by 10% to €4.8bn as they aimed to increase profitability in reducing riskier investments and costs.
The Frankfurt based banking giant said that loans which are not being repaid rose to €761m which has been set aside in the quarter.
This is up from €161m for the same quarter the year before, and the bank saw revenues rise by just 1% 5o €6.29bn.
Chief financial officer James von Moltke said Deutsche Bank are on “track” with cutting costs and cutting jobs through their restructuring programme.
