In 2011, the number of (full-time) staff employed by Deutsche Bank Group declined by 1,066 to 100,996. Excluding the businesses acquired and sold in 2011, this meant headcount dropped by 502.
In our Corporate & Investment Bank Group Division, the total staff figure decreased by 429, largely due to capacity adjustments in light of the difficult market situation in the second half of 2011. In Private Clients and Asset Management, the number of employees declined by 1,743. This was primarily attributable to progress made in the integration of Postbank and the sale of businesses in India.
Staff numbers at our service centers in India, the Philippines, the UK and the USA increased by about 1,255 in 2011. The overall headcount in the other infrastructure areas remained virtually unchanged from 2010.
Following the marked shift in the regional personnel structure of Deutsche Bank in 2010 as a result of the focus of acquisitions on Germany, the regional structure remained largely stable in 2011. The percentage of our workforce employed in Germany stood at 46.9 % (in 2011) after 48.3 % (in 2010).
