From the Paper:

"The rapid wave of evolution has manifested in the form of more consolidation of financial institutions, mergers and acquisitions. Technology and Internet Banking promotes competition. Practically all the world's financial institutions are emphasizing reduced costs with business synergies, increased capital base and risk-management in response to global competition. Smaller players are faced with the threat of elimination if they do not keep up with the rapid changes of time and tap into the resources of the new knowledge based economies . Financial services must be price competitive in the face of fierce rivalry for funds, while maintaining the institutions' investment interests. The industry is tapping economies of scale by using more automated ways of processing mortgages and credit transfer in bulk."
