DZ BANK Group: Reclassification of the allocation to section 340 f HGB reserves into section 340 g HGB reserves

The DZ BANK Group transfers a partial amount of approx. EUR 1.3bn of its undisclosed reserves built up pursuant to section 340 f HGB and places these reserves in the fund for general bank risks pursuant to section 340 g HGB. The DZ BANK Group thus ensures that these disclosed reserves – which are classified as loss-offsetting potential without restrictions under German law – can be used as Tier 1 capital (Published under DZ BANK/Investor Relations/IR Publications).
