EFG to Implement Cost Cutting Measures

EFG International has lifted its cost cutting target for BSI from 185 million to 240 million Swiss francs annually. From next year onwards, the bank will cut up to 150 jobs every year.  The cuts will be focused in Switzerland, Zurich, Lugano. It also plans to cut its spending through disposals and closing booking centres such as a BSI branch in Panama.

The reason behind the dramatic cuts are the costs to integrate BSI have increased from EFG’s original forecast of 200 million Swiss francs.
