These six risks are risks caused by the low interest rate environment, risks caused by corrections on the real estate markets, risks caused by significant corrections on the international financial markets, risks caused by corporate loan defaults, cyber risks, and risks caused by inadequate money laundering prevention. In the report, BaFin outlines its assessment of the current risk situation and explains the steps it is taking to mitigate the risks to the financial markets.
