On 7 March 2018 banking and financial services company Deutsche Bank announced 220 redundancies in its Italian operations. The redundancies are part of the company's broader restructuring plan called 'Strategy 2020' and come on top the 71 redundancies already agreed upon with the trade unions in May 2017.

On 4 May 2018, Deutsche Bank and the trade unions signed an agreement on the planned redundancies which will take place on a voluntary basis and entail economic incentives. The whole process will end by 2025. The company also announced the hiring of seven new employees.

The 220 announced redundancies account for around 5% of Deutsche Bank's total workforce in Italy (4,000).
