International Financial Markets: The Performance of Britain and Its Rivals

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Sep 17, 1992 - Business & Economics - 190 pages
This book measures and explains the performance of major competitor countries in international financial services. Covering markets for a number of financial services, the author assesses performance on the basis of the shares of the major institutional players in the US, Japan, the UK, and Europe. Explanations for the contrasts in national performance are sought through interviews with senior officials of financial institutions. The book concludes by asking how the banking sectors of different countries are likely to fare as international trade in financial services is liberalised.
