Most probably just a pun, just a coincidence…

BANK DIRECTOR (looking at his computer screen): "Gilts at seven; Dutch telecoms in freefall."

My association goes like: Freefall – falling’s just like flying Flying Dutchman

Wikipedia:
The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port, doomed to sail the oceans forever. It probably originates from 17th-century nautical folklore. The oldest extant version dates to the late 18th century.
Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries reported the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. If hailed by another ship the crew of the Flying Dutchman will try to send messages to land, or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.

So many Sherlock clues in this little passage, aren’t there?
Or maybe I'm just over-imaginative, sorry.

Wow, someone has been busy thinking, or overthinking!

I thought he said "deutsche telekom", continuing on the German theme.

That would have been "doitshe" telekom - nice idea though...
