Formatted abstract
The four major Australian trading banks have responded to the deregulation of the Australian financial sector by expanding their global networks to service Australian and overseas customers, and to meet the increased competition. The pace of innovation and integration in the international banking environment has spawned many new financial instruments and many of the old distinctions and divisions between types of business and organisation are disappearing or have become blurred.

It is my intention in this paper to look at the application of economic theory to the internationalisation process, and to critically examine the performance of the four major Australian trading banks in this area. This includes examining the pressures for internationalisation and the objectives of and techniques employed in the internationalisations process. I hope to highlight any differences in strategies used by the four banks.
