On 10 November 2023, private bank Metzler announced an internal restructuring plan, including the plan to cut around 10% of its 800 jobs in Germany, leading to the loss of 80 jobs.

The company stated that it wants to streamline its business portfolio and optimise processes by digitalising them. The overall goal was to increase efficiency. Against this background, job cuts had become necessary and would be carried out in a socially acceptable manner. Direct dismissals were ruled out by the bank. Instead, management seeks to reduce the headcount by not filling job vacancies and using early retirement schemes.
