On 23 February 2017, German savings bank Stadtsparkasse München announced to cut 200 jobs by the end of 2019.

Due to low interest rates, the savings bank generated 5% less in profits than in 2015; job cuts and some outsourcing processes are to compensate for this. The reduction in jobs will be implemented by not replacing staff who retire but not through compulsory redundancies.

Stadtsparkasse München already cut 75 jobs last year. According to the management, the online-banking business increased by 20%. These developments towards more digitalisation will make it easier to compensate for an increase in workload for remaining staff. The bank currently employs 2,306 members of staff and is operating mainly in Munich.
