FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) said on Wednesday it had received requests for information from regulators and law enforcement agencies around the world that are investigating a money laundering scheme involving Danske Bank (DANSKE.CO).
The statement came in response to a Bloomberg report that said the U.S. Federal Reserve was investigating Deutsche Bank’s role in the Danske scandal.
Deutsche Bank said in a statement that there were no probes. “But we received several requests for information from regulators and law enforcement agencies around the world,” it said. The bank also said it continued to provide information to and cooperate with the investigating agencies.
“It is not surprising at all that the investigating authorities and banks themselves have an interest in the Danske case and the lessons to be learned from it,” Deutsche Bank said.
The Fed’s probe is at an early stage, Bloomberg said, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter.
