Who owns the major US subsidiaries of foreign banks?: A note

Author

  • Tschoegl, Adrian E.

Abstract

In 2000 ten foreign banks owned the 12 largest US subsidiaries of foreign banks, which account for over 92% of the assets of all subsidiaries. The parent banks were large and tended to be from English-speaking countries. The novel result is that the parent was often the largest bank in its home country, which suggests that domestic limits to growth are a factor in the foreign direct investment decision.
