A sustainable comeback? Belgian bank profitability since the crisis

Samenvatting: 

This study analyzes the performance of 13 Belgian banks between 2010 and 2015. Belgian banks have returned to profitability since the crisis, but their recovery should not be taken for granted. Concerted action is required to combat threats to revenue. Going forward, priorities on the CEO agenda will be a shift to fee business and controlling distribution costs, costs of innovation and costs of regulatory compliance.
