This article examines the phenomenon of the international financial conglomerate. It begins with a consideration of the corporate structure that international financial conglomerates might prefer in the absence of regulatory and tax distortions. It then examines some of the (largely unintended) consequences for the corporate structure of tax and regulatory policies. It concludes with an analysis of some of the challenges this corporate complexity poses to an orderly winding down of an international financial conglomerate.
