knowledgeable and demanding customers, and shifting
technology. Its impact: operating costs increase and greater risk
of failure.
Rising competition
Government Deregulation
An Increasingly Interest-Sensitive Mix of Funds
Technological Change
Consolidation and Geographic Expansion
Convergence: The movement of businesses across industry lines
so that a firm formerly offering only one product line ventures
into other product lines in order to broaden its sales share.
Increased Risk of Poor Performance and Failure
Are Traditional Banks Dead or Dying?
Recently, some depository institutions have merged & failed in the
United States, Europe and Asia. Between 1980 and 2003 more than
1.500 insured depository institutions failed and more than 9.000
mergers occurred.
Bankings share of the market for financial services in declining.
Exessive regulation of banks and little or no regulation of many of their
competitors is a primary cause of these recent development. The
deregulation is a must if banking is to remain strong
Many banks are trying to fight back and preserve their market share
Offering new services
Charging higher user fees for many formerly free services (ATMs)
Offering more services through subsidiary businesses (security
trading and underwriting)
Entering into joint ventures with independent companies (such
Traditional banks may be dead or dying, but if banks are given
freedom to respond to the publics changing demands for new services,
they need not pass away merely from the blows of their financial-
services competitors.
Government Policy and Regulation
on Banking and the Financial
Services Industry
Why are most banks so heavily regulated?

The leading repositories of the publics savings, especially of

individual and families

consumptions and investment spending

government. Governments have relied on banks to assist in
conducting economic policy, in collecting taxes, and in
dispensing government payments
In the United States, banks are regulated through a dual
banking system:
State banking commissions (the state lavel): To give the states
closer control over industries operating within their borders
The Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve System, and
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the federal level): To
ensure that banks would be treated fairly by individual states and
local communities as their activities expanded across state lines.
