Inancial Institutions Strategic Management


A report of no more than 8 pages (not including title page and references) on the recent performance of a banking sector in a country of your choice.

Your report should include:
i § the main industrial characteristics of the market
i § a review of the available empirical literature that examines dimensions of performance (profitability, efficiency, pricing) within the chosen market
i § an evaluation of the key environmental factors currently driving bank strategy within that market and an assessment of their likely future impact on bank performance

Depending on the country chosen, you may or may not need to include some background information (economic / political / historical), sufficient to enable the reader to fully understand the main body of the report. Assume that your reader is familiar with banking business in general, but is not necessarily an expert on the banking system or country you have chosen as the subject of your report.
