The global financial crisis and the European sovereign debt one have led to new rules for risk-taking by banks. Basel 3 has raised bank capitalization and introduced other rules. We argue that, especially in the European approach one-size-fits-all, the new rules have negative impacts on traditional banks, especially cooperatives and savings banks. First, typically relying more on Internal Rating Based (IRB) models than traditional banks, banks more oriented to finance have more flexibility in determining their capital requirements, sometimes raising suspicions of regulatory arbitrage. In addition, traditional banks, particularly the smaller ones, are aggravated by increasing compliance costs to rules which do not take proportionality into account. We conclude that regulation is helping to erode the bank diversity in Europe, with potential adverse repercussions on financial stability.
