T. Beck, M. Fuchs, D. Singer, M. Witte | AACB, World Bank, GIZ, MFW4A

Despite the increased attention paid to and the acknowledged relevance of cross- border banking, there continues to be a lack of comprehensive research and analysis of this topic as the basis for developing a coordinated policy agenda. This report, officially launched at the MFW4A 2014 Partnership Forum, aims to fill this gap by providing a comprehensive analysis of the growth of cross-border banking in Africa; assessing the benefits and risks of the expanding cross-border linkages; assessing regulatory frameworks and current arrangements for cross-border supervisory cooperation; and discussing advisable supervisory approaches and policies to balance the benefits with the risks of deepening cross-border linkages.
