Part of the Studies in International Economics and Institutions book series (INTERN.ECONOM.)


A dominant feature of the global financial services industry today is intensified competition facing banks and other financial institutions. Among the important environmental forces driving this change are continued exchange-rate and interest-rate volatility, persistent financial disintermediation and securitization, progressive financial deregulation and market interpenetration, and rapid technological evolution in financial processes and products. It is an environment that is increasingly forcing a radical reassessment in strategic positioning on the part of firms in the industry, and an equally radical reassessment of public policies toward the financial services industry.
