"Robert Grosse shows that, despite the internet, most financial services are still delivered locally; indeed the world's largest international financial institutions (such as Allianz and Merrill Lynch) are leaders in their home markets but are not true global leaders. He also shows that, in retail banking, the performance of commercial banks is strongly determined by the growth of their home markets." Alan Rugman, Indiana University

"In this important book Robert Grosse shows that, despite the internet, there are few globally active financial institutions and that there are no truly global competitors. Most financial services are still delivered locally: as a notable example, in retail banking the performance of commercial banks is stongly determined by the growth of their home markets. The future of financial services will be local rather than global." Alan Rugman, Kelley School of Business
