Мировой банковский сектор: трансформация в ходе кризиса

Финансовый бизнес. 2013. № 1. С. 32-40.

Problems encountered by the global banking sector nowadays are not a mere consequence of the unfavorable macroeconomic trends. Those difficulties confirm that a heavy burden of the structural disbalances have been accumulated by the banking industry. In order to solve this puzzle a deep transformation of the sector is essential. Institutional differences of financial structures in the leading economies (anglosaxon, continental European, BRIC’s) have reflected themselves again during the global crisis. A variety of measures intended to support banks and to strengthen their supervision were undertaken both at national and supranational levels. However new norms of regulation are, in their turn, suppressing banking profitability and, to some extent, are hindering the way to sustainability. Banks have to adapt to new economic and legal environment, they need to find new spheres of business and rethink their corporate strategies in order to become profitable again.
