Changes in Banking Industry & Financial Courses

The banking industry was very competitive during the 1930s, particularly in the areas of credit, insurance and capital. Although banks and other financial institutions were very large at the beginning of the decade, and the number of financial companies in the United States reached 1,100 by 1938, by the end of the decade the number had dropped dramatically, to about 500. In addition, the large financial firms, including banks, failed. Many of these financial firms went bankrupt, and many banks had to be bailed out.

The New Deal Administration did not have a single financial institution that was more than 10% of the total banking industry in the United States. The Treasury’s Department of the Treasury had approximately 6,500 financial companies in its portfolio of assets and deposits, and the Federal Reserve System, with more than 5,000 financial institutions, had a much smaller number of financial companies.


The most striking change for Canadian banks is the rapid growth in the number of branches. From 2006-07 to 2009-10, the total number of branches grew by nearly 20%, whereas the number of branches in Canada was approximately the same in both 2006 and 2009.

Although there was a dip in the number of branches in 2008-09, the banking industry continues to grow at a steady pace in Canada with an estimated 1,500 branches planned for 2012.

This growth is mainly attributable to the expansion of the banking industry in new regions and to the expansion of branches in Canada’s major financial centres.

The major centres include the core cities of Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary where the banking industry’s population is growing quickly. However, as these regions have grown in recent years, the banking industry has faced some challenges including: the increasing number of customers in the major centres and the need to provide more services to attract these customers.
