Deutsche Bank Employees Departed From London Office Amid Universal Job Cull

Reportedly, Deutsche Bank workforce was seen leaving its London offices following the German lender declared its aim to curb 18,000 jobs by the end of 2022 in a comprehensive refurbishing of its global business. A number of evidently dissatisfied employees were seen leaving, many with A4 envelopes, while a source well-known with the matter stated to CNBC that people were being asked to gather their belongings and depart the premises. The curbs are focused in the closing of the bank’s international equities sales and trading business in a proposal to advance profitability and are a part of an attempt to lower universal headcount to about 74,000 and curb adjusted costs by a quarter to $19.08 Billion (17 Billion euros).

In fact, the Deutsche Bank employs approximately 7,000 people in London from 7,990 across the U.K., having first established in the capital in 1873. The bank has not revealed a national breakdown of the job curbs, but London and New York are centers for its investment bank’s trading businesses and might, therefore, bear the impact. One employee stated happenings inside as “intricate and complicated.” Along with the job curbs, the bank also intends to create the $83 Billion (74 Billion euro) “bad bank.” A Deutsche Bank representative asserted that the overhaul was a proposal to “focus our resources on operations where clients need us most.”

Recently, Deutsche Bank was in the news as its CEO slashed 18,000 jobs in a revamp of $8.3 Billion. Deutsche Bank disclosed a radical overhaul that would see the lender depart its equities business, after a $3.1 Billion (2.8 Billion-euro) second-quarter loss and curb the workforce by a fifth to overturn a decrease in profitability. CEO Christian Sewing would abandon the dividend in this year and next and take reforming charges of 7.4 Billion euros from 2022 to compensate for an overhaul that squeezes the German lender’s mighty investment bank together with its global footstep and vital fixed-income business.
