The Banking Business Models (BBM) Monitor 2019 Europe is the European edition of the bank business models analysis, which is part of the Global Monitor of banks and credit unions business models. The Global Monitor covers Europe, United States of America and Canada. More countries will be added subject to data availability.
The BBM Monitor 2019 for Europe identifies the business models of 3,287 banks covering more than 95% of assets of the European Union plus EFTA countries from 2005 to 2017, which accounts for 25,402 bank-year observations. Using a unique definition and a careful selection of multi- dimensional attributes and the development of state-of-the-art clustering methodologies, the BBM Monitor provides a coherent approach to analyse banks and to monitor their behaviour over time. The Monitor covers issues such as interaction with ownership structures, size, internationalisation, migration, financial performance and operational efficiency, contribution to the real economy, risk, resilience, robustness and resolution.
The BBM Monitor is geared towards bank practitioners, policy makers, regulators, supervisors and academics who are interested in independent research, analysis and expert views on the banking sector in Europe.
The BBM Monitor and Results will be updated annually and potentially extended, subject to data availability. The business model identification results of the BBM Monitor 2019 for Europe are available for all the bank-year observations upon request.
