This was the beginning of a convergence model in the US market that has had wide-ranging implications. One such impact has been the adoption and common use of the term ‘financial services’ to describe the US (and latterly global) banking and investment industries.

So, best practice in the area of cost/benefit analyses is to avoid the tempting idea of simplifying the analysis so that ‘even business people can understand it’ but to plan out the cost/benefits into short, medium and long term. 1 below demonstrates this for a constructive overlap scenario.

As time goes by and the deployment ‘beds in’ the cost to comply with a different set of regulation is reduced and the benefit increases.
