Deutsche Bank AG Chief Executive Officer Christian Sewing signaled that the bank is looking at executives’ use of personal email accounts to receive and send official business communication.

“We look at all leads we get,” Sewing said in response to a question on Thursday about a Financial Times report earlier in the week that DWS Group Chief Executive Officer Asoka Woehrmann’s used a personal email account to conduct business. “Asoka Woehrmann has done an outstanding job, for which I’m very, very grateful and that’s why I don’t have any doubts,” Sewing said when asked if he still supports Woehrmann as DWS CEO.
