Size, risk, and governance in European banking

£7.99

Product description

The financial crisis that erupted in 2007 has brought the issues of the size, risk, and regulation of banks to the attention of a wide audience. In Europe, the recent and on-going crisis has demonstrated that the European Union (EU) was institutionally ill-prepared to manage a financial crisis, especially one involving large cross-border institutions which are systemically important to a number of countries.

The book is divided into three main sections:
The first provides an overview of how the size of banking firms affects stability in the European banking sector, reviewing the quantitative empirical literature.

The next section discusses the debates relating to each of the different elements of risk in European banking.

The third section focuses on regulation, board monitoring, and opacity in European banking, employing a unique and hand collected dataset on the governance of European banks, as well as data on U.S. banks as a benchmark.

The final chapter critically reviews the new insights gained from the chapters above, while offering policy implications as regards the role of size, risk and governance in European banking.
