Aligning financial supervisory structures with country needs
World Bank Institute, 2004 - Business & Economics - 263 pages
"The financial sector industry has undergone major changes in recent years. Technological innovation, deregulation, and liberalization are changing the context in which financial supervisors operate. Selecting the right supervisory model is an important strategic decision for a government or financial authority, and should be done in a way that fits with the institutional setting and resource capacity of the particular country. While an increasing number of countries are planning to integrate financial supervisory agencies, others have adopted a partially integrated supervisory structure, and many maintain completely separate agencies.Aligning Financial Supervisory Structures with Country Needs examines experiences from a variety of supervisors and policymakers from different countries to cross-fertilize ideas on issues of financial supervisory structure and to better understand why and how some countries have initiated structural changes. This timely book also identifies the pros and cons of different financial supervisory models."
