Economic literature states that, in banking, cost control and risk management are of crucial importance relative to scale and scope. To what extent does this evidence help us to understand the performance gap between banks over time? The eleven historical essays presented here investigate how different factors (strategy and structure, ownership, governance and management, but also reputation, market power and institutional protections) influence the long term performances and the longevity of major banks.
