Abstract

The goal of this book was to review the data sets, empirical methodologies, and findings regarding the role of banks and financial technology in current financial markets. It should be clear by now that the modern banking industry goes much further than its initial purpose of transferring funds from savers to investors, and, in this way, screen and monitor borrowers, provide liquidity, and perform maturity transformation.
