Abstract

This article examines how the introduction of a specialised banking system is likely to impact banks and the real economy in Germany, in particular from a financial stability perspective. This study is motivated by a recently passed law in Germany on a specialised banking system (Trennbankengesetz), current reforms in the US and UK and proposals for the EU. We focus on the consequences of a separation of the savings & loan business and proprietary trading.
