ZURICH Dec 8 Swiss private bank EFG
International said on Thursday it expects to cut up to
450 jobs between 2017 and 2019 as it laid out planned savings
from its newly acquired BSI Bank.
In an update on the savings from the BSI deal, EFG said
approximately 100 to 150 job cuts are planned over the three
years across EFG and BSI, with two thirds expected to take place
in Switzerland. EFG has around 3,800 employees.
Zurich-based EFG also upped the targeted cost savings from
the BSI deal by 55 million Swiss francs ($54.65 million) to
around 240 million francs by 2019.
