Deutsche Bank was at the forefront as Wall Street began “nearshoring” staff to cheaper cities across the U.S. Now, the German bank is moving some of those jobs to India.
Bloomberg News reports that the bank is offshoring about 60 accounting positions to Mumbai from its campus in Jacksonville, Florida, as it seeks to trim costs, people with knowledge of the matter said.
