Deutsche Bank co-Chief Executive Officer Anshu Jain was forced to halt a speech in Frankfurt Thursday as a group of shareholders vented their anger at the company’s policies.
Bloomberg reports that Jain paused as the group jeered, booed and threw fliers into the air at the annual general meeting.
The shareholders, screaming slogans such as 'crisis-profiteers', were escorted out of the event.
A group of about two dozen people protesting funding of the arms industry had set up stalls and held up banners outside the hall where the meeting took place.
Thousands of people will attempt a blockade of Frankfurt’s financial district on May 31 to protest capitalism and the banking industry’s role.
