Hide / Show Abstract

Today, the large banks that encompass the global derivatives business combine retail and commercial banking with investment bank activities. Product innovation utilising derivatives and gambling in high-risk trades has become a key driver of profitability within banks but this leaves them exposed to huge risks which in turn pose a threat to global financial stability. Policy makers urgently need to address this issue.
