The Federal Reserve fined Deutsche Bank AG $41 million for "unsafe and unsound" anti-money-laundering practices on Tuesday, the latest in a series of fines for the lender.

"We are committed to implementing every remediation measure referenced in the Fed's order and to meeting their expectations," a Deutsche Bank spokesman said.

Deutsche Bank in April was fined a combined $156.6 million by the Fed for deficiencies in its foreign-exchange trading, as well as failure to maintain a compliance program for the Volcker rule, which puts limits on proprietary trading by banks.

Additionally, Deutsche Bank was fined $425 million by the New York Department of Financial Services in January for money-laundering violations involving its Moscow branch.
