On 7 February 2013, Deutsche Börse has announced to its employee representatives to cut 250 positions by 2013. The group will cut about 125 positions in Luxembourg - at its subsidiary Clearstream - and 125 jobs in Frankfurt, Germany.

It is reported that the bank took this decision in the context of a cost saving plan of about 70 million Euros per year.  The management highlights that it will propose voluntary departures and other socially responsible measures to decrease its workforce and will avoid forced dismissal.

Deutsche Börse employs 3,600 employees.
