DZ Bank raising 900m capital

Germany’s biggest mutual bank is near to raising €900m (£834m) of capital as it seeks to become one of the few institutions in the country to recover from the financial crisis without government help. DZ Bank is next month set to raise up to €400m from a rights issue backed by most of its owners. DZ also received €500m of capital in the first half of the year from the mutual sector.
