Private banking: the investment banks muscle in

The deal is the latest sign of increased investment banking interest in private banking. It's no surprise that investment banks are trying to muscle in on this lucrative area, particularly in the family office sector. Traditional private banks are in serious danger of losing out.

Home Services: next stop France

Home Services has been offering home insurance in the UK since 1994 through various partners. Moving into France in alliance with major shareholder Vivendi should allow Home Services to take a slice of a E37 million market, without much short term opposition. In the medium term, however, the opportunity may be too attractive for other major European utilities to ignore.

Egg: beating the competition

Egg, majority-owned by Prudential, is the UK's leading Internet-only bank by a huge margin. Its key challenges now are to turn France's Zebank into a success, and to cross-sell more premium products, reducing its reliance on credit cards. Neither of these objectives looks impossible - and if Egg achieves them, it will truly have cracked it.

CortalConsors: value added is the way forward

BNP Paribas' Cortal bought German eBrokerage Consors in April, creating powerhouse CortalConsors. While it has E14 billion under management and a large customer base, reviving Consors' fortunes and positioning the new firm as a profitable, pan-European asset-gathering leader will take more than brute force.

BNP Paribas: making deals

French giant BNP Paribas will buy Cogent from Australia's AMP. The move is one of a string of deals that BNP Paribas has pursued as part of its international expansion, proving there is some conviction behind its global aspirations. However, it still has much to do before it can rival the likes of Citigroup and HSBC.

Egg: let's go to work

Egg acquired 362,000 net new customers in the first half of 2002, and turned last year's GBP63.4 million loss into a pretax profit of GBP1.2 million. It's also improved its cross-selling efforts, signing up its credit card consumers to higher-margin products. As long as it can continue this trend in the UK and elsewhere, Egg looks set to increase its presence still further.

Egg: cracking the French cards market

Egg's new French cashback Visa product is compelling, and the UK-based online bank has a brilliant track record in credit cards. However, French wallets are dominated by private label cards, French consumers are adverse to credit card borrowing, and the French press is preoccupied with over-indebtedness. France will be Egg's biggest challenge so far.
