Israel's Bank Mizrahi approves 300 mln shekel efficiency plan

JERUSALEM, Dec 28 (Reuters) - The board of Bank Mizrahi , Israel’s third-largest lender, has approved a plan that calls for the early retirement of 300 workers through the year 2021 at a cost of 300 million shekels ($78 million).

* The cost of the plan will be incurred in the 2016 year end report and it is expected to save the bank 70 million shekels a year, Mizrahi said on Wednesday.

* Israel’s banking regulator last year ordered banks to become more efficient and expects the banking system to save at least 1 billion shekels a year starting in 2020 from redundancies, branch closures and using more technology.
