Eurozone Commercial Banking Sector Analyzed in New BMI Report Published at

LONDON – The Eurozone banking system is on the edge of collapse as major lenders begin to run out of the assets they need to keep vital funding lines open. Many banks, including some French, Italian and Spanish lenders, have already run out of many of the acceptable forms of collateral such as US Treasuries and other liquid securities used to finance short-term loans and have been forced to resort to lending out their gold reserves to maintain access to dollar funding.

The European banking sector's problems are being exacerbated by a wave of asset sales as lenders look to dramatically shrink their balance sheets. The Eurozone banks are estimated to sell off between EUR 3.7 trillion and EUR 4.5 trillion of assets in the next three years.

New market research report “Eurozone Commercial Banking Report Q2 2012” prepared by Business Monitor International (BMI) provides independent forecasts to 2016-end and competitive intelligence on the commercial banking industry in each of the 17 countries of the Eurozone – Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.

The study examines key drivers of growth and future prospects, including the macroeconomic situation, the level of development and potential for growth of the banking sector, the commercial initiatives of top players, government policy and the regulatory environment. Elaborate profiles of the leading banks, enabling a full evaluation of recent company performance and future growth prospects, are also included.
