The article discusses the author's view regarding the financial services outsourcing in the U.S. The author states that outsourcing has become a mandatory and highly successful strategy within market-leading banks around the globe. However, he argues that outsourcing and offshoring can be a daunting prospect to many managers, especially those mid-size banks that lack the resources to follow in the footsteps of the larger banks and establish their own captive operations offshore.
