March 24 (Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bank AG Chief Executive Officer Josef Ackermann said Germanyâs biggest bank had a âgood startâ to the year and expects to return to profitability after scaling back risky businesses and shedding toxic assets. âWe are very disappointed at our loss in 2008, but absolutely determined to take all necessary measures to restore Deutsche Bank to the path of profitability,â Ackermann, 61, wrote in a letter to shareholders published in the annual report today. âAt the time of writing, I am pleased to report that we have made a good start to 2009.â Bank of America Corp., the biggest U.S. bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. have said they were profitable in the first two months of the year, bolstering banking shares. Credit Suisse Group AG said today it had a âgood startâ to the year. Deutsche Bank generated increased revenue of 2.8 billion euros ($3.8 billion) in January, the bank said last month. âDeutsche Bank is one of the big profiteers of the bond- market rebound,â said Dirk Becker, a Frankfurt-based analyst at Kepler Capital Markets, who recommends buying the stock. âWeâll likely see a comeback this year after a horrible fourth quarter.â Deutsche Bank gained 1.4 euros, or 4.6 percent, to 32.10 euros by 9:07 a.m. in Frankfurt trading. The stock rose 53 percent this month, valuing the bank at 18.1 billion euros. That compares with an 18 percent advance in the Bloomberg Europe Banks and Financial Services Index of 65 companies. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=akD1vZ_M.xWA&refer=home "I am zhe Tschief Ixekutif Officr of German Deutsche Bank and I am escht cool ey"
