Standard Chartered cut 2,000 jobs in past year

Pair Of Scissors

It's called 'managing attrition'.

Standard Chartered has cut about 2,000 jobs across the bank in the past year and expects little change in the rest of 2013, marking the first time for many years it has cut staff as it tightens costs in the face of slowing growth.

'In the last year headcount has reduced by just under 2,000 ... we are managing attrition, we are tightening up in all areas of spend', said Richard Meddings, finance director.

Reuters reports that Meddings said the bank's operating profit was "slightly down" in the third quarter compared with a year ago.
