Consolidation and regulations bring a negative impact and heavy burden on consumers overall, Mr. Santin wrote. Consumers are left with less choices in the marketplace, less competition and therefore increased pricing for banking services.

An abundance of regulations and consolidations leaves many banks hanging by a thread. But new legislation, technology, and population growth may help banks turn a new leaf.

Too many restrictions harms banks and consumers, Mr. Santin wrote by email. Regulation, although created to protect the general public, has an overall negative effect by creating additional expense for banks, in turn reducing their ability to invest in their business for the purposes of growth and job creation.
