Germany's Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) (DBK.DE) is set to take a majority stake in private investment bank Sal Oppenheim Jr & Cie, Dow Jones has reported citing a person familiar with the matter.
'A stake of more than 75 percent would make sense,' the source reportedly said, adding that it would give Deutsche Bank immediate control. Deutsche Bank and Sal Oppenheim are expected to reach an agreement by mid- October, when the rights to exclusive negotiations between the two parties expire.
Past media reports have said that Deutsche Bank was only interested in Sal Oppenheim's asset management operations.
