Resource description

Part of the executive summary - A very large merger wave in the banking sectro has taken place in Europe and the United States over the last ten years. This raises a set of questions to different parties. Banks' shareholders and managers need to identify the potential sources of economic gain derived from a merger or an acquisition. As concerns public policy makers, they need to assess how bank mergers -be they domestic intra-industry, across-industry, or cross-border-affect their mission of protecting investors and ensuring financial stability, an appropriate level of competition and the competitiveness of national firms in international fiancial markets. Moreover, as the banking world is becoming increasingly international, there is a need to reasses the structure of bank regulation and supervision which has been historically assumed by each nation State.
