Regulating the Areas of Banking Activity:A Comparative Study, June 2018

The study examines the manner that various countries determine the areas of banking activities in their law and regulations. The study focused on countries such as Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, UK, Australia, USA and Canada.

The study examines whether restrictive legislation exists in these countries, and is there a closed list of areas of activity permitted to banks, such as securities, real estate, insurance, consulting services, etc. The study surveyed World Bank data to examine the structure of the banking market and the structure of the law that regulates these areas. The study reviewed whether the approval of the regulator or license are required before financial institutions are allowed to engage in new areas of business.
