Deutsche Bank Is Said to Woo Buyout Giants to Finance Deals

Deutsche Bank AG is deploying top executives, as well as billions of dollars, as it seeks to win more business with Wall Street’s most active dealmakers. Chief Executive Officer Christian Sewing and other senior managers at the bank have fanned out in recent weeks to meet leaders of big U.S. private equity firms, looking to strengthen relationships and drum up mandates for financing buyouts, according to people with knowledge of the strategy. “It’s a piece that does fit as part of our strengths within the Americas, we’re not going to hide from that,” said Mark Fedorcik, co-president of the investment-banking business, who declined to comment on the balance-sheet commitment.
