About this book


Banks' business is increasingly international and an élite group of global banks is emerging. This book outlines the influences on the evolution of international banking and analyses trade and investment in the international banking industry, covering cross-border trade in banking services, foreign direct investment by banks, international financial centres, capital movements, and competition between banks. Focusing on competitive advantage, it compares the leading banks' international business. This book is of interest to academics and students as well as to bankers. It provides a transversal and truly comprehensive overview of the international banking industry, focusing on the organization of the industry and the influences on it, rather than on the functions of banks themselves.
