To countervail its negative effects, the EU has made considerable efforts to initiate the European Banking Union with its ideal of a level playing field among credit institutions. In spite of these harmonization efforts, the level of heterogeneity of banks across member states in terms of their average performance, capital adequacy, and asset quality remains high. Banks in the Southern and Eastern European periphery are found to be less profitable and riskier than their counterparts in other regions of the EU. Given that such differences can be traced back, at least partially, to country-specific factors – economic, legal, and institutional conditions – applying the same prudential rules to all EU banks may fail to comply with the level-playing-field paradigm and actually distort the competition among European banks. The European banking sector is characterized by a rich variety of governance.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Kind, Axel</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-12-09T09:52:24Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>National and International Banking Heterogeneity</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
