Politics and Prudential Supervision
Involves the March 2005 takeover bid launched by ABN Amro, the Dutch bank, for Padua-based Banca Antoniana Popolare Veneta S.p.A. (Antonveneta)--a bid that many would view as a test of Italy's commitment to the creation of a single European market for financial services, as well as the openness of the Italian retail banking market. Provides background on European financial integration and developments in the Italian banking market over recent decades, describes events surrounding ABM Amro's bid and the emergence of a competing bid by a much smaller Italian rival, and the role of the Bank of Italy in determining the fate of Antonveneta.
