Universal banking: A shareholder value perspective
Universal banks are multi-product firms in the financial services sector whose complexity is difficult to manage. Ingo Walter asks the question -- do they optimize invested capital?

He believes the potential value of shareholder equity can be released by management in universal banks following some simple rules, and offers concrete suggestions.
