Eurohypo, the German property financing company which was formed when the property financing subsidiaries of Dresdner Bank, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank merged, employs a total of 2,500 people, 800 less than before the merger .

There were plans to cut a further 100 jobs, but these were never implemented. The company has informed employees on 14 December 2004 that it is planning to cut a further 150 to 200 jobs in addition to the 100 job cuts already planned over a period of several years. Before a decision is taken on the exact number of jobs to be cut, processes and structures will be examined.

Although the bank achieved a profit of 449 million euros for the first nine months of the current year and is expecting to surpass the 500 million euros mark for the year as a whole, it is still aiming for a more stable cost per income ratio to enable it to remain in a leading market position.
