Description

On 29 January 2014, the European Commission proposed a regulation to stop the largest and most complex banks from engaging in proprietary trading, which means trading using the bank's own money as opposed to on behalf of customers. Under the new rules, supervisors could also require banks to separate certain risky trading activities from their deposit-taking business if these activities compromise financial stability.
