German Dekabank, a bank owned by the regional banks of the Lander and by the German saving banks, provides investment funds and capital to saving banks. The bank, which has been criticized for being too strongly involved in the capital market, has been strongly affected by the financial crisis.

According to FTD, Dekabank plans to cut €90 million in personnel costs in 2009 to 2011. 150 job vacancies shall not be filled; an as yet unclear number of temporary agency workers and of employees on fixed-term contract shall lose their jobs. There is no more information on the job cuts.
