Global Investment Banks: Regulatory Arbitrage series: OW European over US IBs, March 8, 2011

In response to the impending Dodd-Frank regulatory changes in the U.S, J.P. Morgan Cazenove Global Equity Research conducted a study on the likely impact of such regulatory reform on investment banks (IBs) and credit banks (CBs).[1] The study, which was published on March 8, 2011, combines the company's three-part series on regulatory arbitrage with additional research on such topics as executive compensation, proprietary trading, and the Basel 3 regulatory framework. It concludes with its investment banking "pecking order" and the rationale behind its preferences, which rank European institutions such as UBS, Credit Suisse above U.S.-based investment banks Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs.
