Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not a banker, but I would assume banks with a public mission would have greater auditing requirements than a private bank of comparable size.

Just for comparison, Germany's state development bank KfW employs around 3500 people in all, and lends around €75bn/yr (2006). So by that standard the EIB is understaffed.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
