In the years following the 2008 financial crisis, pundits and policy analysts decried the implosion of the global banking sector. But a fresh look at the international footprint of the largest global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) reveals a more nuanced picture of the current banking architecture. Professor Dirk Schoenmaker dissects the latest data and provides analysis on the influence, scale, scope and state of the G-SIBs from a global perspective. getAbstract recommends this detailed and expert report to banking professionals and those interested in assessing the condition of global financial institutions.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) have changed from 2007 to 2015,
- What strengths and weaknesses G-SIBs show in the major economic geographies, and
- Why global banking has declined.
