Straumur Bank: The Forever Changing Landscape (A)






This case traces Straumur Bank's dynamic international growth from a small investment bank to Iceland's fourth largest bank with operations in 10 countries. Case A deals with Straumur's situation as of the third quarter of 2007 when the global financial and banking industry was starting to show significant signs of weakness. The bank's new foreign CEO must decide whether Straumur should continue on its trajectory of aggressive international growth or pull back and focus on integrating its separate businesses.
