Deutsche Bank has transferred hundreds of highly qualified IT professionals from Russia to Berlin, along with their families and pets, the Financial Times writes, citing informed sources. Prior to the start of the military special operation in Ukraine, the bank’s two large centers in Moscow and St. Petersburg employed about 1,500 employees involved in the development and support of software. This is about a quarter of all full-time IT specialists of Deutsche Bank. All Russian employees of the bank were asked to transfer to work in Germany, and half of them accepted the offer, three people familiar with the matter said. Most of those who agreed have already moved, the sources say. In total, we are talking about about 2 thousand people, including the families of employees. Many of those who left arrived in Germany via Finland, the sources say. The management began preparing the documents in advance, and the employees were able to start work immediately upon arrival in Berlin. “This was not an evacuation,” one of the sources said, adding that it was “a normal relocation of personnel, although, of course, of a much larger size and scale than usual.” It is not yet clear what will happen to the bank’s remaining IT operations in Russia. ” We continue to consider various options,” said one of the senior employees of Deutsche Bank.
