VIDEO: Deutsche's co-CEO outlines key 2015 risks

Jürgen Fitschen talks to FinanceAsia about the challenges facing the Asia-Pacific region in 2015.

Deutsche Bank’s global co-chief executive Jürgen Fitschen said the greatest risk to Asian economies in 2015 is a potential interest rate hike in the US, which may result in disruptive capital flows back into the world's biggest economy.

European regulators are impeding banks' ability to extend trade finance in Asia, Fitschen added during an interview with FinanceAsia in Ho Chi Minh City on the fringes of a biannual German business conference organised by APF that rotates around Asian cities.

China's opening up of its capital markets has so far been carefully orchestrated and Fitschen sees a gradual lifting of the cap on investments made using the Hong Kong-Shanghai Stock Connect scheme.
