The International Banking assignment is a group project on the globalisation of banking.
Each group must have only five students and you may choose your group members. You must
inform me by email of the composition of your groups. If allocation is not made by Friday 22
October, I shall allocate students to groups on a random basis.
Your Group Report will comprise five sections, see below. It is the responsibility of each group
to allocate the five sections to its members. The content of each section cannot change. A failure
to answer any of the five sections, or the submission of an answer to another question, will result
in a mark of zero for that section. Each section should be around 1,000 words in length plus the
Introduction and conclusion written by the group. Reports must not exceed 6,000 words.
Structure of the Group Report by section:
1. Using the BIS locational banking statistics, calculate the ratio of local currency claims
in local currency-to-total international claims for (a) all countries, (b) developed
countries, (c) offshore centres, and (d) developing countries for selected years
between 1983 and 2010. Discuss the evolution of the ratios. The BIS dataset is found
at the following URL: bankstats.htm
2. Provide an overview of the changes in bank regulations affecting foreign banks
location decision, differentiating between developed and developing countries.
3. International bank entry is driven by home country and host country factors. Discuss
this statement with reference to the academic literature.
4. Foreign bank entry is sustainable in the long run only if it realises efficiency gains.
Selectively summarise the empirical results literature on domestic bank versus foreign
bank efficiency, again differentiating between developed and developing countries.
5. Select a country of your choice and review the trend in foreign bank penetration and
consider whether foreign banks offer a competitive threat to domestic owned banks.”
