A new report and index has been released by Deloitte which has attempted to determine the size of the shadow banking system in the United States. The Deloitte Shadow Banking Index shows the volatile shadow banking system totaled $9.53 trillion at the end of 2011, more than 50% below its peak in 2008. However, with regulatory changes and financial innovation looming, the shadow banking system could creep back very quickly.
