The last decades’ of international banking deregulations has spurred Swedish banks to extensive foreign expansion, spreading the scope of their organizations to cover several markets. The different markets where Swedish banks’ currently compete are all characterized by varying conditions for banking operations. The center of attention in this paper is on how regulatory environment have affected bank executives’ strategy formation in the internationalization process. A conceptual model based on the Uppsala internationalization process model is developed to analyze the banks’ internationalization in a long time perspective. One crucial finding is that the strategy formation process must be market specific and the hazards of applying general market knowledge.
