In the current economic climate banks are faced with a multitude of business challenges.

The continuing efforts to improve the balance sheet are of paramount importance and often involve tough divestment and deleveraging decisions in difficult market conditions. Another focus of management is on how to manage through a period of particularly high impairments and low net interest margins. Last but not least there are the consequences of state aid and reputational damage to be worked through as well as the looming specter of increased regulation.
