The European banking landscape has profoundly changed as a result of the
regulatory response to the 2007–8 global financial crisis and ensuing sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone. Moreover, the extensive changes in the economic and regulatory environment have highlighted a number of unresolved

issues in European banking. This Handbook offers a comprehensive overview
of these key issues, taking stock after the recent crises and looking forward.
Although the new regulatory architecture is now mostly in place, its successful implementation depends crucially on how the Eurozone deals with the
legacy of the financial crises. Even after substantial regulatory reforms, debates
on further reforms needed to strengthen the EU regulatory framework to
limit future risks arising from the banking system are ongoing. The persistent
weakness of some Eurozone banking systems puts the implementation of the
newly agreed rules to a test.
It is against this background that this Handbook aims to provide an understanding of the key issues facing European banks. The Handbook is composed of five main parts. Part 1, European Banking: Through the Crisis and
Beyond, offers an overview of the European banking sector in terms of financial structure, ownership and business models and corporate governance, as
well as the payment system. Part 2, Performance and Innovation in European
Banking, discusses the key themes of bank competition, efficiency and performance. In addition, it looks at the impact of technological development on
the banking sectors and how banks are embracing the opportunities it offers.
Finally, it explores the issues of bank diversification and the relevance of small
business lending.
Part 3, Financial Stability and Regulation, addresses the key issues of financial reforms and the increasing complexity of financial regulation. It also looks


vi  Preface

at the impact of state aid and the impact of monetary policy. Finally, it considers the increasing interactions between banks and markets. Part 4, Cross-­
border Banking, looks at recent trends in cross-border banking in Europe and
evaluates the establishment of the Banking Union. Finally, Part 5, European
Banking Systems, offers a detailed analysis of the main issues facing national
banking system in key European banking markets.
The chapters of this Handbook document major trends across European
banking systems and the implications of a changed regulatory and monetary
environment. Building upon a close interaction between researchers, practitioners and policy makers, this Handbook aims to provide the necessary tools
to understand the current practical and policy challenges.
