The Wall Street Journal: Deutsche Bank agrees to $7.2 billion settlement in mortgage probe

Deutsche Bank AG agreed to pay a $3.1 billion penalty, plus provide $4.1 billion in consumer relief, to settle mortgage-backed securities claims with the U.S. Justice Department, the lender said late Thursday.

The German bank said it would take a roughly $1.17 billion pretax charge this quarter as a result of the $3.1 billion penalty. The additional consumer relief has less immediate and less solid consequences, because it is to be paid out over at least five years, the bank said in a statement late Thursday night.

The impact of the $4.1 billion consumer relief could fluctuate over time. The bank said that portion of the settlement isn’t expected to have a material impact on its 2016 financial results.
