Product Description

Review

"Robert Grosse shows that, despite the internet, most financial services are still delivered locally; indeed the world's largest international financial institutions (such as Allianz and Merrill Lynch) are leaders in their home markets but are not true global leaders. He also shows that, in retail banking, the performance of commercial banks is strongly determined by the growth of their home markets." Alan Rugman, Indiana University

"In this important book Robert Grosse shows that, despite the internet, there are few globally active financial institutions and that there are no truly global competitors. Most financial services are still delivered locally: as a notable example, in retail banking the performance of commercial banks is stongly determined by the growth of their home markets. The future of financial services will be local rather than global." Alan Rugman, Kelley School of Business

Book Description

After living through the stock market crises of 1987 and 2001-2, many people wonder just how safe the financial system is, and what kinds of financial instruments they should trust their savings to. This book explores the future of the financial services industry, giving readers an idea of the kinds of institutions and services that will survive in the early twenty-first century.The book focuses on the changes that we will face in the near future, such as greater use of the Internet for banking transactions and the increasing globalization of financial services. It considers changing conditions in key financial centres around the world, especially in the US, the UK, Germany, Japan and Switzerland; and it points to the probable disappearance of the insurance sector as a separate industry. The book describes the strategies of major financial services firms, and discusses the likelihood that various strategies will be viable in the future.The author's informative and, at times, provocative assertions will be of interest to anyone who wants to understand how the financial services sector is developing.

2.0 out of 5 stars How many times can you repeat Allfinanz? Nov. 13 2005
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I suspect the editor got hold of the first draft of this book and told the author that it must be at least 200 pages!!
Although there are some interesting observations and comparisons of some of the largest companies in Finacial Services (all pillars) the amount of repetition is unbearable. The author's pretext is that the strategy of most organisations in this sector are moving to an Allfinanz model - providing a broad spectrum of services.
This could have summarised in far fewer pages.
I've given 2 stars because there is some valuable content, just not enough to fill the 200 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting pre-Lehman look at the financial services Aug. 13 2010
By Cortana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Always interesting (well, usually...) reading a book predicting the future of the financial services written before the latest bear market. This book has a wide range covering insurance and commercial banking as well as the usual investment banking side. Its range may be too wide to delve too deep into any one of the many interesting issues it raises, but essentially the book does what is says on the cover. The last part of the book is the most interesting when it makes its predictions on where the sector is heading, and all in all this is a decent read on the financial services industry. Would recommend to others, although keep in mind that it was written in 2004, so its predictions may be more interesting than useful. Anyway, great book!
