The Bankwatch

Tracking the consumer evolution of financial services

The world of banking has changed dramatically in 5 years

This from The Economist paints a very visual picture of immense change in the banking industry in 5 short years.

Some things that leap out indicating global shifts in financial power:

  • US banks have significantly re-capitalised and assets are flat suggesting significant write offs
  • Europe banks have shrunk in assets indicating massive write offs and have re-capitalised
  • Asian banks have grown both assets and capital
