Why We Believe You Should Not Buy Deutsche Bank Structured Notes

Last year, Vernon Litigation Group posted an article entitled “Why I Would Not Want Deutsche Bank Structured Notes in my Portfolio.”  In that article, we pointed out that these Notes are actually unsecured loans to Deutsche Bank and the loan cannot be repaid if Deutsche bank is unwilling or unable to repay the money owed at maturity of the notes. We highlighted concerns over the financial and moral integrity of Deutsche Bank in that 2017 article.


In the 2017 article, Vernon Litigation Group disputed Deutsche Bank’s description of these products as “very flexible instruments to pursue an individual risk management”. Rather we describe Deutsche Bank’s structured notes as unsecured loans to a struggling foreign bank. At the risk of being redundant, if you bought a structured note backed by Deutsche Bank in the last several years, it essentially means that you are loaning your money to a wildly unprofitable and arguably dishonest foreign bank with no collateral protection if this German Bank is unwilling or unable to pay you back.

We want to continue our warning based on what has occurred since our 2017 article. Last week, a Yahoo Finance article posted by Tom Sims noted the failure of Deutsche Bank’s U.S. stress tests as well as the record low stock price it hit last week. According to the article, the U.S. Federal Reserve last year classified Deutsche Bank’s U.S. unit as troubled and its stock price is down over 40% for the year. In other words, Vernon Litigation Group believes this warning is worth raising again.
