Abstract

The increase of the foreign property in the CEE countries took place at the same time with the increase of the concentration on the banking market. The foreign countries contributed to the highest concentration level of the banking market through two channels: the acquisition by the foreign banks of some local institutions and the consolidation of the local (autochthonous) institutions. Plus, the capital markets have developed considerably in the CEE countries, offering the firms alternative financing sources.
