This chapter provides an overview of the changes in the technological, competitive, regulatory and macroeconomic context that affected the banking sector over the years of the great international financial crisis. In particular, the dynamics linked to the entry into the market of new (and innovative) competitors, the opportunities deriving from the reshaping of the business model and the delicate balance between efficiency and competitiveness on the market are considered; the topic of the new rules affecting the banking sector in Europe is also critically examined.
