Abstract: This paper describes portfolio choices of German households in the 1980s and 1990s, presenting stylized facts and analyzing recent trends in asset ownership rates and asset shares on the basis of financial accounts and survey data. We correlate socio-demographic household characteristics with asset shares and ownership and examine how German households have adjusted their asset portfolios in response to policy changes. A particular focus is on the effects of German reunification and the portfolio adjustments of East German households during the transition process.
