In Global Banking, Roy C. Smith and Ingo Walter assess the transformation that is taking place world-wide in the financial industry - its causes, its course, and its consequences. Beginning with an overview of recent developments, the authors consider the major dimensions of international banking, including the issue of cross-border risk evaluation and exposure management and the creation of a viable regulatory framework in a global competitive context. The authors link the field of international commercial banking with international investment banking. They identify the factors that distinguish winners from losers in each activity of global financial services. Global Banking concludes with a section on the problems of strategic position and execution. This book will be essential reading for anyone involved in the worldwide financial industry, as well as students of international banking and financial markets.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a very useful update on the authors' overview of the strategic challenges facing the banking industry. It is both a useful book of reference and an easy read for expert and non-expert alike"--Charles Aldington, former Chairman, Deutsche Bank, London

"A must-read to understand the trends and issues in international banking and capital markets. Drawing on their vast academic and professional experience, Roy Smith and Ingo Walter present in a crystal-clear manner the various segments of the global banking industry, the competitive strategies of players and the pending regulatory issues. The perfect balance between presentation of institutions and economic analysis helps greatly to the understanding of a complex fast-moving industry" --Jean Dermine, Professor of Banking and Finance, INSEAD, Fontainebleau, France

"This is the third and thoroughly revised edition of a path-breaking analysis of the global banking sector. The prior edition of this book was published in 2003 and since then all of the major investment banks have disappeared and 80 percent of the wholesale business has become concentrated among a handful of megabanks. The authors have succeeded not only in making sense of these changes in the structure and regulation of the industry, but also in providing an analytical framework for understanding the forces that are shaping current and future developments. This book is a useful resource for practitioners who want to gain a strategic overview of the industry and also to university students who are contemplating careers with global banks. No other book even attempts such an ambitious agenda."--Richard J. Herring, Jacob Safra Professor of International Banking, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
