Schroders is preparing to refresh its board with two new non-executives this year as part of an olive branch to investors concerned about the unorthodox decision to appoint the wealth firm’s long-standing chief executive Michael Dobson as chairman.

Deutsche chairman Rolf Breuer will step down in May, 2 years before his contract with the bank is up. Breuer, 68, is fighting a claim that comments he made during a Bloomberg TV interview in 2002 hastened the demise of failed media group Kirch. Deutsche is also in the dock over this interview, as the banker was speaking as a senior bank executive. The Deutsche chairman will be succeeded by finance boss Clemens Boersig.

BarCap, BlackRock, Citi, Goldman, Morgan Stanley, Nord LB
