Economic Management : A study of Swedish banks (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Betydelsen av en välfungerande bankverksamhet, och därmed även den ekonomiska styrningen däri, torde blivit allt större på grund av den accelererande globalisering som idag sköljer över vårt samhälle. Det faktum att de undersökta bankerna verkar på samma area med likvärdiga produkter är även det av stort intresse beträffande homogeniteten i den ekonomiska styrningen.

Syfte: Syftet med uppsatsen är att analysera Sveriges storbankers centrala ekonomiska styrning i form av graden av decentralisering, användandet av budget samt valet av nyckeltal. Rapportförfattarna söker även analysera likheter och skillnader i dessa styrsystem då detta torde vara intressant eftersom de alla tillhandahåller liknande tjänster på en relativt mogen marknad.

Genomförande: Det empiriska materialet består till lejonparten av intervjuer med nyckelpersoner inom de svenska storbankerna (FöreningsSparbanken, Handelsbanken, Nordea och SEB).

Resultat: Både stora skillnader och likheter kunde identifieras genom undersökningen. Skillnaderna ligger främst i graden av decentralisering och användandet av budget. Bakgrunden till skillnaderna har ursprung i bankernas olikartade historiska utveckling. Likheterna återfinns främst inom brukandet av nyckeltal. Många av de nyckeltal som används finns inom de olika bankerna.

Abstract [en]

Background: The importance of well functioning banking and thereby a well functioning economic management might have been increasing due to the rapid globalization our society has been exposed to during the last century. The fact that the examined banks act on the same arena with equivalent products is of great importance when the homogenousness of the economic management is investigated.

Purpose: The main purpose is to analyze Sweden’s four largest banks’ economic management as far as the degree of decentralization, the use of budget systems and the choice of business ratios is concerned. The investigators are seeking to prove both similarities and differences in the analyzed economic control systems.

Method: The empirical material mostly contains of interviews with key figures from the different organisations (FöreningsSparbanken, Handelsbanken, Nordea och SEB).

Conclusion: Both great similarities as well as flagrant differences could be identified throughout the investigation. The differences contained mainly of the different degree of decentralisation and the use of budget systems. The reasons for these differences might originate from the different historic development within the investigated organisations. The similarities are mostly retrieved in the use of business ratios.
