Who are the holders of Greek, Portugal and Ireland Debts?

Greece, Portugal and Ireland have most unsustainable debts among all EU countries. Holders of the debts of these countries are at risk of losing substantial money if these countries fail to service their debts. This may lead to contagion which may cause subsequent defaults by more countries and banks.

RBC Capital Market has compiled a list of holders of the debts of these countries. German and French banks are the most exposed banks along with the ECB and Central Banks.
