Abstract: The regional financial sector: a Scottish case study, Reg. Studies 26, 619-631. The regional finance literature suggests that financial market segmentation may affect regional economic activity, but that the UK financial sector is sufficiently integrated to rule out this effect. This paper attempts to broaden the scope of the debate by considering the credit creating behaviour of the banking sector together with the (interdependent) financial behaviour of all other sectors in a region. It is concluded that financial behaviour in this broad sense affects regional activity even in an integrated national financial market. In particular, financial integration may adversely affect the allocation of new credit to a peripheral region. The argument is assessed by considering the Scottish case.
