Bank business models
Nikola Tarashev and
Kostas Tsatsaronis ()
BIS Quarterly Review, 2014
We identify three business models using balance sheet characteristics of 222 international banks and a data-driven procedure. We find that institutions engaging mainly in commercial banking activities have lower costs and more stable profits than those more heavily involved in capital market activities, mainly trading. We also find that retail banking has gained ground post-crisis, reversing a pre-crisis trend.
