Is America Bullying Foreign Banks? (cough cough hard to get over the thought that they get a lot of attention actually they get nothing but fines they pass on to customers but to put things in perspective)


If it seems like foreign banks get a lot of attention from U.S. regulators, that may be because foreign banks have such a large presence in the U.S. According to the most recent data from the Federal Reserve, foreign banks in the U.S. have $2.1 trillion in assets. That’s over 16 percent of the total commercial banking assets in the entire country.

There’s no doubt that the banking lobby is highly influential with regulators and lawmakers. But foreign banks are part of that lobby. Barclays [BCS Loading...
