In the wake of the recent financial crisis, various regulatory actions were taken to change banking structures, with the aim to reduce bank risk-taking. Most prominently, the US introduced the Volcker Rule, the UK the Vickers reforms, and the EU the Liikanen and Barnier proposals. All these legislations aim at separating investment banking/propietary trading from commercial banking activities. There is a strong ongoing discussion on how these regulations will affect banks, their business models, and the possible economic consequences. The Task Force analyzes and compares the different proposals in the light of modern day banking business and assesses the economic consequences of these proposals.
