    Deutsche Bank Is Cutting Tech Spending as Digital Revolution Rages

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.At the heart of Chief Executive Officer Christian Sewing’s turnaround plan for Deutsche Bank AG is a contrarian bet: that he can cut spending on technology while gaining ground on the competition.Even with the digital revolution in finance accelerating, Deutsche Bank expects to trim its annual outlays on tech to 2.9 billion euros ($3.3 billion) in 2022 from a peak of 4.2 billion euros this year.“Deutsche Bank would probably love to be spending more on technology, but they need money for other parts of their restructuring,” said Pierre Drach, managing director of Independent Research in Frankfurt. “It’s pretty much impossible for European banks to catch up with the Americans at this stage.”Sewing’s team says it’s made progress in fixing information networks that his predecessor called “antiquated and inadequate.” Years of expansion left it with systems that couldn’t communicate with each other and didn’t adequately track its business. The bank, which has spent almost $18.5 billion on legal settlements and fines since 2008, has also suggested that the past breakdown in controls stemmed in part from weak systems.The 4.2 billion euros Deutsche Bank has budgeted this year to maintain and modernize its systems represents a fraction of the $11.5 billion JPMorgan Chase & Co. shells out. "You have to spend to win" with new technologies, Jamie Dimon, the bank’s CEO, said Tuesday.The gap is set to widen as the German chief executive wants to cut technology costs by almost a quarter. European banks, meanwhile, are forecast to increase tech spending at a 4.8% annual rate through 2022, according to the consulting firm Celent.“We continue to invest in IT to serve clients better, become safer, more efficient and better controlled,” Senthuran Shanmugasivam, a Deutsche Bank spokesman, said in response to questions from Bloomberg. “Despite our smaller footprint, our investment plans in 2019 are broadly unchanged as we reallocate resources to our core businesses.”It’s all part of a retrenchment Sewing announced last week to exit equities sales and trading and eliminate 18,000 jobs. Deutsche Bank aims to cut adjusted costs to 17 billion euros in 2022 from 22.8 billion euros last year; the share of technology expenses would remain stable over that time period.The company can modernize systems while spending less, for example by moving most of its applications to the cloud, according to Frank Kuhnke, who oversees its technology. He said Deutsche Bank has already cut the cost of crunching data by more than 30% since 2016 even as it increased computing capacity by about 12% a year to meet regulatory demands.Still, Deutsche Bank needs “to make a further step change in embracing technology,” Sewing told analysts last week.New HiresThe CEO has brought in new talent to do that. Bernd Leukert, who left the management board of software company SAP SE earlier this year, will start in September. Neal Pawar will join as chief information officer from AQR Capital Management the same month.Hiring outsiders hasn’t been a panacea in the past. Kim Hammonds, a former Boeing Co. executive, spent about four and a half years rebuilding the bank’s systems only to be ousted in 2018 after reportedly calling the bank “the most dysfunctional company” she’d ever worked for.Deutsche Bank expects its retrenchment from businesses to allow it to focus on its core operations. It will also save about 300 million euros by 2022 by shedding almost 5,000 external IT contractors and replacing them with internal staff at a lower cost. The integration of consumer lender Postbank will avoid duplication of expenses.The digital revolution is upending all aspects of finance -- from taking deposits to bond trading, a traditional Deutsche Bank strength. Citigroup Inc. has created a fintech division to invest in debt-market technologies while Spain’s Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA has created a unit to automate trade processes and generate intelligence from data. Dutch bank ING Groep NV has used artificial intelligence to win 20% more bond trades and cut costs.Cutting tech costs is also notoriously difficult.A three-year initiative announced in 2012 failed to stop technology spending from ballooning 44% by 2015. That was the year that then-CEO John Cryan said he would reduce the number of operating systems from 45 to four in 2020. Deutsche Bank still has 26, Sewing told investors in May. He kept the goal of eventually cutting them to four, but says the lender will need to run 10 to 15 systems for the foreseeable future.“Everyone knows that Deutsche Bank’s systems are a mess and I think they will have to end up spending more,” said Drach. “The fact that their new technology head hasn’t come on board yet gives them a good narrative for increasing the ultimate amount.”\--With assistance from Katie Linsell.To contact the reporter on this story: Nicholas Comfort in Frankfurt at ncomfort1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Dale Crofts at dcrofts@bloomberg.net, James Hertling, Giles TurnerFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    India Surprises by Lowering Budget Gap Despite Weak Growth

    (Bloomberg) -- India’s new finance minister surprised most analysts by narrowing the budget deficit target even though the economy is in need of a stimulus after slowing to a five-year low.The fiscal gap for the year that began on April 1 is estimated at 3.3% of gross domestic product, down from 3.4% set in February’s interim plan, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said in her maiden budget in Parliament in New Delhi on Friday.The government plans to increase taxes on the wealthy, sell stakes in state-run companies and increase dividends from the central bank in order to boost revenue and bring down the deficit. It will also sell its first global bond to raise funding for infrastructure spending.“Those in the highest income brackets need to contribute more to the nation’s development,” Sitharaman said. The effective tax rate for individuals with taxable annual income above 20 million rupees ($290,000) will increase by about 3%, and for those earning above 50 million rupees it’ll climb 7%.India’s benchmark 10-year bonds dropped 8 basis points to 6.67% while the rupee gained.Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who returned to office in May following a landslide election victory, is under pressure to revive consumption and investment after latest data showed growth slipping to a five-year low 5.8% in the three months to March.“Clearly India is not loosening the purse and yet there’s all this talk about boosting infrastructure,” said Prakash Sakpal, Asia economist at ING Groep NV in Singapore. “There is a bit of a misplaced assumption about how are we going to get growth going up when there isn’t enough spending.”Sitharaman said the nation needs 20 trillion rupees annual investment on infrastructure, and the government will be tapping the overseas bond market for funds.GDP growth is forecast to rebound to 7% in the current fiscal year from 6.8% last year, the Finance Ministry said in a report on Thursday, mirroring a projection from the Reserve Bank of India. The central bank has cut interest rates three times this year to spur growth.Sitharaman, previously India’s defense minister, exempted some defense equipment from a basic customs levy. She also said the government would allow more foreign investment in the insurance and media industries.Here’s a look at other highlights in the budget:RevenueThe government will receive 1.06 trillion rupees in dividends from the central bank and other lenders, while raising 1.05 trillion rupees from asset sales.ExpenditureTotal spending for the fiscal year is estimated at 33.2 trillion rupees, compared with 34 trillion forecast in the interim plan. The total borrowing plan was left unchanged at 7.1 trillion rupees.The government is providing 750 billion rupees for a new measure to support farmers and 700 billion rupees in capital support to state-run banks.Tax measuresThe customs duty on gold was increased to 12.5% from 10%. The minister also proposed adding an excise duty of 1 rupee per liter each on diesel and gasoline.Companies with revenue of up to 4 billion rupees a year will be taxed at the 25% rate. The GST rate on electric vehicles will be lowered to 5%.(Updates with additional budget details.)\--With assistance from Abhijit Roy Chowdhury, Bibhudatta Pradhan, Upmanyu Trivedi, Siddhartha Singh, Shruti Srivastava, Ronojoy Mazumdar and Shivani Kumaresan.To contact the reporters on this story: Abhijit Roy Chowdhury in New Delhi at achowdhury11@bloomberg.net;Vrishti Beniwal in New Delhi at vbeniwal1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nasreen Seria at nseria@bloomberg.net, Karthikeyan SundaramFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Japanification of Europe Is Here and Escape Isn't Easy, ING Says

    (Bloomberg) -- The euro area’s anemic growth and inflation mean it’s probably already experiencing its own Japanification, and escape could prove hard if the Asian nation’s track record is any guide, according to ING Group.Europe’s situation has long left it open to comparisons with Japan in the 1990s. In a report on Monday, ING lists similarities including an increase in government debt, a buildup of bad loans at banks, an aging population and huge monetary policy loosening.While Japan’s policy response to its crisis was slow, it also fell victim to bad timing, according to ING. Various chances of recovery were snuffed out by the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis, then the bursting of the dot-com bubble and later the global financial crisis.That may well be the fate of the euro area, too, which last year appeared to be on the verge of unwinding stimulus only to be pushed back in the other direction. With global trade tensions weighing on sentiment and inflation expectations near a record low, the European Central Bank is facing the prospect of interest rate cuts or re-starting quantitative easing.“Without a strong recovery, it is difficult to escape the low growth, low inflation and subsequently low rates environment,” said Carsten Brzeski and Inga Fechner, economists at ING. “An economic upturn could quickly be over and monetary policy might not have enough ammunition up its sleeve, with interest rates remaining stuck at the zero lower bound for years to come.”The parallels mean Europe could be facing a ballooning of its central bank balance sheet in the years to come, and a major fiscal package could be needed. There’s also the prospect of higher retirement ages to keep prevent the labor force from shrinking.“For the euro zone, the most important lesson is probably not so much the root cause of Japanification but the desperate attempts to get out of it,” ING said. “There will not be much room for rate hikes in the coming years.”To contact the reporter on this story: Catherine Bosley in Zurich at cbosley1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Fergal O'Brien at fobrien@bloomberg.net, Brian SwintFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
