What: Foreign Expansion of Banks After the Crises and Fintech Disruption
This chapter describes the factors that affect activity abroad in periods of crisis and which are relevant for avoiding disinvestment costs and loss of starting investments. Wise planning in international banking considers possible crises and country risks. Despite the overall positive view of the role of global banks, the advantage of being global is greater for the bank itself or for a country’s public politics, as discussed. A new era of banking is taking form and the redesign of fintech models and strategies, as well as the impact of fintech in international banking, is examined.
