M&A benefits for the banking sector consolidation
An overview of the US, EU and Luxembourg market
As a result, the euro area banking sector still appears to be considerably more fragmented than in the United States.
In a low interest rate environment and stringent regulatory context, the profitability of banks is in question more than ever before. In Europe, this trend is further exacerbated by the relatively low level of consolidation of the market in comparison to the US. However, M&A in the banking sector has risen recently, driven not only by scale issues but also by technology or geographical considerations. Given current market momentum, acquisitions and disposals will remain at the forefront of banking group priorities in the coming months.
