Bank Strategies and Tech Valuations

Deutsche Bank.

A few weeks ago Deutsche Bank gave co-chief executive officer Anshu Jain "primary authority for implementing the bank’s new strategy," which previously, for some reason, was not the co-CEOs' responsibility? It was just some other guy, responsible for implementing strategy? (It was then-chief financial officer Stefan Krause.)
