1.0 Introduction

The globalization scene in the twenty first country has witnessed a resurgence of international banking and holistic integration of business transaction with little or no restriction. These according to Goldbery (20120 have occasioned a tremendous growth in the liberalization of banking operations across borders.

Though, the international monetary fund (IMF) (2010) sees globalization as the growing economic and social interdependence of countries through increased volume of cross border transaction and improved technology, therefore the financial operations of any nation significantly translates into the socio-economic status of the citizens Eboh, Okanya, Uma (2010) and Uma, Obidike (2013) argued that globalization has increased access to capital inflow, technological transfer and strong bargain for improved technical and managerial workforce.

Globalization does not only broaden the nation’s economic fortunes but also exposes the nation to stiff competition and efficiency through huge capital inflow capacity building and improved service delivery.

1.1 Background Of The Study

They have been different deductions about what globalization depicts. Some related it to the scientist perspective economic and social political perspective while some view globalization from the information technology aspect but globalization under this research work is viewed from the banking perspective.

On this note there are so many definitions given to globalization by different authors globalization can be seen as a process of integrating economic decision making such as. Consumption investment and savings all across the world this is a process of creating a global market in which all nations are forced to participate. In other words globalization is a process of expanding economic cooperation among states and this does not necessarily imply future breakdown of boarding.

Globalization can also be defined as the integration of national economies through trade and financial transaction. It is a process that has tended to reduce the ability of micro economic policy to achieved its objective without the due consideration of countervailing affects of competing policies adopted by other nations. The effects of globalization on the Nigeria banking performance has been the outcome of several factors among which are the increase in the volume of international trade and capital flows, technological improvement in the communication and data processing and the deregulation of domestic market for information and technology, telecommunication technology tends towards the building of strong Nigerian banking system.

In order to aid its efficient and effective performance especially with the new reform of recapitalization of twenty-five, billion naira (N25,000,000,000).

All over the globe foreign banks has entered into countries and added another dimension to a stiff domestic competition and in the process significantly affecting the structure of domestic banking markets. This is particularly evident in the united states. Old banks have captured growing share of key market Rose (2016).

The profiles of the foreign banks that have entered into joint ventures with Nigeria banks are intimidating. They have the capacity and potentials to restructure the banking system of any country. The strategic alliances between Nigerian banking and foreign banks and the increasing resources of Nigerian banks to foreign markets to raise capital fund are signs of movement towards the globalization large extent aid a magnitude level of great performance in the industry and of course tending it to greater height.

Furthermore, globalization has transformed the Nigerian banking performance in a profound way by altering the size and structure of the firms that comprise it. Major banks can now extent their branches network beyond national frontier or built strategic base in foreign national financial centers by acquiring either local banks or subsidiary banks. The network of financial connections among bank and other financial institution is now embracing the global world.

Globalization has not only transformed the Nigerian banking system and or aid its performance, but also has a positive impact on wholesale financial markets as evidence by blurring off the traditional barriers between commercial banking and investment banking and asset management motivated by the boom in equity and bond market in high yielding instruments and the wave expanded or introduced into the field of investment banking by engaging in security operations.

5.0 Summary, Conclusion And Recommendations

5.1 Introduction

This chapter present summary of key study findings, conclusions and recommendations suggestion for further research are also discussed. The data was analyzed and findings presented in tubules for easier interpretation. This chapter specifically brings out the discussion. Based on the study in chapter four. Based on the key findings a number of conclusions are drawn and policy implication made and further research suggested in the following section.

5.2 Summary Of Findings

In the last decades, countries round the world have become more finally integrated driven by the potential benefits of financial globalization.

One of the main benefits of financial globalization is the development of the financial globalization is the development of the financial sector financial markets become deeper and more sophisticated when they integrated with world markets increasing the financial alternatives for borrower and investors. Financial recruits operating in a global environment enable international risk diversification and facilitate consumption smoothing.

Although financial globalization also poses new challenges. The crises of the 1990s after many countries liberalized their financial system have questioned in part the gains of globalization. Countries become exposed to external shocks and crisis from contagion effects. In the initial stages of liberalization, if the right infrastructure is not in or put in place, financial liberalization can lead to increased risks. Moreover, in a financially integrated economy, policymakers have power policy instrument to conduct economic policy.

5.3 Conclusion

From the empirical evidence in the research, the researcher concludes that globalization is a silent tool for economic growth and development. Though Nigeria has witnessed economic growth as banking operations has created employment opportunities for the citizens but this has not translated into economic development resulting from high cost of doing business infrastructural deficiency and inability to domesticate the local raw materials to expand the economy hence the gross domestic product has been adversely affected. This indicates the argument of AJAYI (2011) that suggest that integration of domestic economic mechanism to enhance the standard of living.

5.4 Recommendations

In the light of the findings, the researcher recommend that:

  1. Foreign direct investment should be geared towards the diversification of creating balance between the services and manufacturing sections to increase local resource utilization economic sub-contracting and broadening of the economic fortunes.
  2. Finance and business environment reforms should be strengthened especially improvement of Nigerian basic infrastructure.

  6. There is also need to reduce fiscal deficits and improve monetary management in order to prone down inflation rates and bring about a more competitive real returns on Nigeria asset vis a vis Nigerian’s trading pastures
  7. The private sector participation also needs to be strengthened to compliment governments efforts in the liberalization process of banking sector. However, the more private operations take advantage of the liberal policies of government in the financial sector, the more there will flow in, fresh foreign capital in form of equity and other portfolio investment.
  8. More fundamental is the need on the part of multilateral institutions including IMF and world bank to create a more supportive operating environment for private business and funding in support of long-term investors in infrastructure. In the face of increased capital susceptible to balance of payment difficulties in which case half should be supportive through provision of funds without strangulated conditionality.
  9. The banking sector also needs to seek up by adequate supervision and regulation. The in going reforms in the banking sector will help in this direction in no small measure.
