Martin Zielke, the head of Commerzbank AG (CBK)’s private customers unit, said planning for the possibility of a Greek exit from the euro is the responsible thing to do, Der Tagesspiegel reported, citing an interview.
“It’s simply an imperative of responsibility to prepare for all eventualities,” the newspaper quoted Zielke as saying in an e-mailed preview of an interview to be published on May 29. “Furthermore a Greek exit, should it come, would not mean the end of the euro.”
