FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank's (DBKGn.DE: Quote) management board will not get bonuses for 2015, the bank's chief executive said on Thursday, after the lender posted a record 6.8 billion euro ($7.41 billion) net loss last year.

The supervisory board of Germany's biggest bank has taken the decision not to award bonuses to the management board, John Cryan told a news conference.

"In the context of the overall performance of the bank last year, which the board has to own... that is a decision which I respect," Cryan said.
