Life is hard for European banks! The latter are first subject to very strict regulation, which imposes capital and liquidity constraints on them (Basel III). American banks, which do not have these constraints, generate higher margins and dominate the lucrative niche of investment banking. In addition, low or zero interest rates weigh on profitability.
