British lender HSBC has laid off 150 employees supporting global operations from back offices in India as part of a global move of “realigning” operations, sources said on Thursday.

The move comes weeks after German lender Deutsche Bank also started laying off employees supporting global operations as part of the exit from the equities business.

Job impacts at HSBC are “less than 150” and this is a part of “realignment as part of ongoing operations” at the lender, which employs 2.38 lakh people globally, the sources said.

The job impacts are at the mid-management level at its centres in Pune and Hyderabad, they said. The bank employs over 15,000 people at its back offices, called as ‘global capability centres’, in the country.
