The overturning of the Glass-Steagall Act has spawned numerous discussions and debates concerning the resulting effects. This paper reviews literature aimed at explaining the effects the FSMA has had on the values of commercial banks, investment banks, and thrifts, as well as the of effect of deregulation on corporate customers and the conflict of interest versus certification of value debates pertaining to commercial banks operating in the securities market.

From the Paper:

"Studies done to date, in respect to the deregulation of commercial banks, are not sufficient and in some cases may have missed the boat. For instance, the study conducted by Czyrnik and Klein included thrift stocks (a variable of seemingly little importance) and excluded corporate customers. It would be interesting to see the results of a similar study concerning FSMA's effect on the value of corporations who use investment banks compared to those who use commercial banks for underwriting IPOs. A study of this nature would serve well to examine the possible effects of commercial banks tying investment banking to credit offerings. Another possibility for a future study would be to interview investors with question regarding their perceptions concerning conflict of interest or certification of value that may or may not attribute to commercial banks engaging in underwriting securities."
