The receipt series of corporate failures involving large German banks, and the conflicting interests when German banks act in their different capacities, have portrayed the weaknesses of the bank system in Germany. This paper gives expert analysis of the complete transformation of the German universal banking system, providing a commentary on the effects of the globalisation of banking and capital markets and growing demands for specialised products and increasing international competition that have forced German banks to rethink the universal banking concept.
