FRANKFURT (Reuters) - The supervisory boards of both Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank are scheduled to hold long-planned meetings on March 21, four people with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.
There is no indication that a possible merger between the two banks is on the formal agenda. But it comes just weeks after the banks began informal talks to explore a possible tie up and questions are likely to emerge.
Official agenda topics are the banks’ annual reports and the state of business during the first quarter, the people said.
