Banking News

Are you interested in banking news? Maybe you work in the industry, have a connection to the sector, or have a financial interest through investments. Whatever your interest the Wiser daily banking news email is for you. The financial crisis of the late 2000s proved how much of an influence the banking sector has throughout society. Every person, company and institution was impacted to a greater or lesser degree, from large multi-national corporations, to hard working American homeowners, to community organizations. Even after the financial crises the assets of the five biggest banks combined are worth more than 50 percent of the US economy. Those big five banks - JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup and US Bancorp - control $15.2 trillion in assets. The industry continues to consolidate so how will it look in another 10 years as regulators impose new rules? How will technology, the growth of India and China, and a changing US economy affect the sector? You will find the answers to these questions and more by staying informed of the latest banking news. And the best way to find information, news and developments about banking is through the tailored Wiser daily email.
