"We are on the way back to normal, but the return to the office remains voluntary. It will only be gradual." Very few employees are working in offices again in London, not a single one in New York. In Frankfurt, Deutsche Börse has brought back around a third of the 2,500 employees. At Deutsche Bank, too, around 800 of the 2,500 employees are on site at the corporate headquarters in Frankfurt. Most of the 88,000 employees of the largest German credit institute still work from home. Across the Group, almost half of the 49,000 employees work at Commerzbank.

"The trading rooms are filling up slowly." In London, according to an internal memo, more Deutsche Bank dealers will go back to their desks in September. At the cooperative DZ Bank, too, it is primarily the dealers who are expected to return. "The exchange of information often suffers from working in the home office," explained a spokeswoman. "Especially when you have to react quickly, it is helpful to be aware of what is happening around you. The dealers are not sitting in the open-plan office without a reason."

Several insiders point out that compliance departments are increasingly concerned about losing track of traders' financial statements.
