Title:Banking: Globalization, governance and regulation
Type: FCT Project
Ref: PTDC/EGE-ECO/114977/2009
Classification: Excellent
Principal Investigator: Mohamed Azzim
Brief description: The role of banks in sustaining the sound functioning of contemporary markets and economic growth is well documented but the on-going crisis shows that there are still many issues that remain unresolved. Some of the unresolved issues relate mainly to multinational banking, governance and regulation. This project intends to contribute to the closure of some important gaps in the literature. Foreign direct investment (FDI) matters significantly to banks because of the benefits of internalizing specific bank-client knowledge and general managerial, technical and marketing knowledge across borders. From a regulatory perspective it matters locally because of the influence of FDI in the functioning of local banking markets (development, supply of credit to domestic firms, mainly small and medium size) and globally because of the difficulty in supervision consequently exacerbating global systemic risk.
