2014 is a make or break year for Deutsche Bank's executives

Deutsche Bank - External

Deutsche Bank has made 2014 into a make-or-break year for co-Chief Executives Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen, who have stuck to ambitious targets for the bank that could be threatened by its long list of legal problems.

Reuters reports that the bank, under attack from regulators and politicians over its culture and litigation issues, reported a surprise fourth-quarter loss this week.

Despite the loss, Jain has stuck to the bank's reform targets for 2015, which include cost-cutting and achieving a return on equity of 12%, six times higher than in 2013.

The big gap between Deutsche's aspirations and its current state has enticed investors to bet on a turnaround in the hope it will lift the bank's shares.
