Die dynamische Entwicklung und nachhaltige Veränderung der Finanzmarktstrukturen haben die Trennlinie zwischen financial institution- und Versicherungsgeschäft zunehmend verwischt. Die Möglichkeiten der Zusammenschlüsse und Kooperation sind äußerst vielfältig. Jedem geläufig sind beispielsweise die Vertriebskooperationen bzw. Verbundsysteme bei den Sparkassen (Sparkasse, Provinzial, LBS, Deka). Verstärkt zu beobachten sind jedoch insbesondere sektorübergreifende Konzernbildungen von Banken, Finanzdienstleistungsinstituten und Versicherungsunternehmen, denn Allfinanzkonzerne können breitere Produktpaletten besonders effizient am Markt platzieren. Während früher meist nur lockere Beziehungen zwischen Banken und Versicherungen bestanden, haben sich auch in Deutschland mittlerweile mächtige Finanzkonglomerate herausgebildet, die weltweit tätig sind. Die rechlichen Rahmenbedingungen für Finanzkonglomerate wurden in jüngster Zeit überarbeitet und neu konzipiert.
