Product Overview

This case describes the effects of the Asian Financial Crisis on the Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), the fourth largest Thai bank. It describes the actions taken by the Thai government to restore confidence in the Thai financial sector, and SCB's strategy for raising additional capital in international markets. The case allows for an analysis of how a financial crisis combined with more stringent government requirements may result in a vicious cycle of non-performing loans, lack of new credit extension, and economic slowdown. Students can discuss whether they consider SCB an attractive investment, and what SCB can do to increase confidence. The case can be used in classes on international business, or international financial markets. Can be used with the B case, UVA-BP-0444.
