Hungarian financial services group, OTP, has announced its plan to cut 134 jobs in its Croatian unit. The need to restructure follows a successful acquisition of Banco Popolare Croatia (BPC) late 2014, resulting in a surplus of administrative staff. OTP Banka stated that the lay- offs will be evenly spread across the two banks. The merger has led to an 11% increase in staff, as OTP Banka now employs 1125 employees. It now operates 112 branch offices and 252 ATMs across the country.

The OTP Group is one of the largest independent financial services providers in Central and Eastern Europe with a broad range of banking services for private individuals and corporate clients. OTP Group comprise subsidiaries, granting services in the field of insurance, real estate, factoring, leasing and asset management, investment and pension funds.
