Internationalization among Financial Service Firms

Track G

Date: Sunday, October 12, 2008


Time: 13:00 – 14:30

Interest Group Panel

Room: Salon 18

Session Chair:
Markus Venzin, Bocconi University


Like other service industries, internationalization in the financial services sector has lagged behind that in manufacturing and the technology sectors. But the international picture is changing quickly. Pioneers of international financial services—Citicorp, HSBC, AXA and Allianz—have continued their global expansion, while in Europe, the race for cross-border mergers has involved Banco Santander acquiring Abbey National and Unicredito taking over HVB. Meanwhile, the growing prominence of financial institutions from emerging economies and the scramble by Western companies to defend their dominant position is apparent. The goal of this session is therefore to discuss the evidence on internationalization within financial services in order to assist managers of financial service companies charged with the tasks of designing and implementing internationalization strategies in making better decisions.
