European Banks Are Losing Relevance

European banks have dramatically lost ground in global banking, Deutsche Bank AG (USA) (NYSE:DB) notes. In an analysis the world’s 25 largest banks, they found that before the start of the financial crisis European banks accounted for nearly half of the aggregated market cap. That share has now fallen to only 17.5%.
