The next stage of development for Provincial Banks will require them to achieve scale. Currently many are stuck in a 'low equilibrium' state, unable to meet market opportunities due to lack of skills, lack of scale and investment capital

Many Provincial Banks are stuck in a vicious cycle of lack of scale, poor capabilities and low profits
Larger institutions can break out to a virtuous cycle, to take an increasing share of the market
