Bad bank (also used in German, more rarely Auffangbank and Abwicklungsanstalt)

A public hive-off vehicle (state-run rescue company) for bad loans and toxic securities that has been proposed in various cases, especially in Japan and Sweden. This company could bundle the receivables of distressed institutions, package them as securities and place them on the credit market. Ultimately, however, taxpayers would be asked to pay for the mismanaged businesses of banks. – In the wake of the subprime crisis, a fund with all the characteristics of a bad bank was set up in the USA in the fall of 2008. – See bad bank model, German, bad bank problem, fundamental, balance sheet adjustment, ECB sin, Financial Market Stabilization Act, Mittelstandsbank, risk capital, debt repayment pact, European, sovereign wealth fund, securitization, confidence bubble, waterfall principle.
