Van Lanschot, a Dutch financial institution specialized in private banking and asset management services, announced to cut 200 to 300 jobs in the coming three years.

As announced, most of the job cuts are expected to take place via natural attrition though forced dismissals are not ruled out.

It is reported that the bank wants to cut costs because of the persistent uncertainty in the banking sector.

Van Lanschot is the oldest independent bank in the Netherlands and employs 1,862 people.
