The paper is reviewing the foundation of the “Bankgesellschaft Berlin”
in 1994 that consisted in a merger of three publicly owned banking
institutes in Berlin. The financial crisis of the banking group in 2001
resulted in one of the biggest public scandals in German banking history.
The paper is analyzing the case of the “Bankgesellschaft” in relation to
possible interdependencies between its foundation and the financial crisis
in 2001. In spite of evidence for inefficiencies in the structure of the
“Bankgesellschaft” it cannot be stated that the merger in 1994 directly
resulted in the financial crisis of the banking group.
