 Shadow BankingShadow Banking takes on multiple forms, but is mainly non-commercial banks providing services similar to or the same as commercial banks.  The growth in shadow banking has several causes.  Increased regulations on commercial banks that limit their service offerings is one factor.  Another is the ability of shadow banks to offer higher returns than commercial banks.  Such institutions continue to grow because they are offering services consumers want, but can’t obtain from commercial banks.Shadow banking is generally lightly regulated or unregulated.  However, since the 2007 financial crisis, western governments have examined shadow banking in more detail and have imposed a number of new regulation on their activities.  Thus, it is incorrect to say the industry is unregulated unless you specify a particular country where that is true.Assignment:
