Please help me to understand.
Can somebody explain to me this this sentence in a easier way, I mean it is an economical language, and I cannot understand every single word, or either the sense of some parts.
Thanks in advice

Deutsche Bank management had previously been resistant to a merger, but lacklustre performance, combined with the prospect of lower-for-longer interest rates and pressure from the German government to address the lenders’ bloated costs and measly returns, triggered a rethink.

The main sentence is basically: "Deutsche bank made a merger". The rest of the sentence explains why they made the merger: because of their bad financial results (lacklustre performance), interest rates, and because of pressure from the German government. A merger is when two companies join, becoming one company.

D. Bank leaders did not want to join with another bank in the past. The following things have made them consider the idea again:
poor earnings
interest rates staying low
pressure from the german government to lower the costs of their business
poor returns on investments
