Deregulation of the banking industry in the US brought in a wave of consolidations, creating some of the largest banks in the world. On January 14th 2004, JP Morgan Chase announced its merger with Bank One, a deal, which was valued at $58 billion. The merger created the second largest bank in the US with assets worth $1.1 trillion. The combined company, JP Morgan Chase and Co., had a balanced mix of consumer and wholesale business, synergies in retail banking as well as investment banking, consistency in earnings and increased customer base. The success of the merger depended on the ability of the companies to blend their cultures, achieve cost cuts and attain growth in revenues.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To understand the changing scenario in the US banking industry due to consolidation and to discuss the possible outcomes of the big mergers in the industry.
