Rosemary Vrablic, a Deutsche Bank managing director and President Donald Trump’s personal banker for nearly a decade, will leave the firm at the end of the year after her business deals involving the president became the subject of multiple investigations.

Key Facts

  • First reported by The New York Times, Vrablic’s resignation follows the opening an internal investigation by Deutsche Bank in August into her $1.5 million purchase along with two colleagues in 2013 of a New York City apartment from a company partially owned by Jared Kusher, a White House adviser and Trump’s son-in-law, who was her client at the time.
  • The Times reported Vrablic’s colleague Dominic Scalzi, who purchased the Park Avenue property with her, will also leave Deutsche Bank.
  • New York Attorney General Letitia James opened an investigation into Trump’s financial dealings early last year after Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen testified before Congress that the Trump Organization inflated the value of its assets to mislead investors.
