I am preparing a story for the Sibos issue of Banking Technology, and if there is a discernible trend it is that experts think Asia will come out of the financial crisis before Europe and North America. And along the way, Asian banks and multinationals have acquired some attitude.
Two different sources talked about “flexing muscles,” one referring to expected increases in M&A activity, another talking about Japanese banks, particularly Nomura, which has bought up significant chunks of Lehman and plans to make good use of them.
Look for it in the post shortly, or on the magazine racks at Sibos.
