Chief Financial Officer James von Moltke was speaking at a financial conference as speculation heats up about potential cross-boarder mergers.

“For Deutsche Bank, we’ve been very focused on executing on our own strategy, and we think that strategy would prepare us to engage in merger activity when the time comes and the right opportunities arise,” von Moltke said.
