ICBC, JPMorgan, HSBC Among 13 Banks With 200,000 Staff

AgBank lead world's lenders by number of employees

A tentative plan by Japan’s largest bank, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc., to trim its current headcount of 147,000 by 7 percent over the next decade shows that lenders continue to cut jobs almost a decade after the global financial crisis.
