German bank mergers year

In business journalism, the year 2008, when – Dresdner Bank, which dates back to 1872, and its approximately 900 branches were merged into Commerzbank and – Deutsche Bank acquired a majority stake in Postbank. Both events had been widely discussed in advance and generally welcomed as a “consolidation of German banking industry”. – The takeover of Dresdner Bank, which belongs to the Allianz insurance group, was paid for in good part by the taxpayer, because Commerzbank had to take advantage of state aid amounting to 18 billion euros to survive in the wake of the financial crisis that followed the subprime crisis. – In October 2009, Deutsche Bank also took over Sal. Oppenheim junior, a private bank founded by the then 17-year-old Salomon Oppenheim in 1789. – See bank, systemic, gigabank, big bank, size confidence, G-Sifi, crisis, systemic, Lamfalussy proposal, stabilizers, automatic, subsidiarity principle, too big to fail principle. – Cf. 2010 BaFin Annual Report, p. 150 (BaFin monitored the takeovers because of integration risks).
