As this article’s headline polarises, many will probably ask themselves if a bank can be seen as an enemy of their clients at all. Dr. Jochen Weck, partner at law office Rössner Rechtsanwälte, finds a clear answer: “Banks can be seen as enemies – though in a figurative sense of a conflict of interest. The bank wants to make money out of business relationships with their clients. The client seeks to achieve the highest possible return with their investment. Thus, a bank partially acts against customer interests.”
