The Blurring of Distinctions between Financial Sectors: Fact or Fiction?
This paper measures the 'blurring of distinctions' phenomenon in an innovative way, namely by means of a breakdown of the revenues of the 50 largest financial groups worldwide. These data show that the blurring of distinctions between financial intermediaries of different nationalities (i.e. international blurring) is clearly more important than the blurring of distinctions between different types of financial intermediaries (i.e. cross-sector blurring). At the same time, there are many initiatives on a national level to cope with the cross-sector blurring of distinctions, whereas so far relatively little initiatives have been taken to respond to the international blurring of distinctions.
