Canada's Big Banks Are Too Big to Fail

In the following video, Motley Fool financial analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson compare the U.S. banking system with the banking system in Canada. As many investors often look to Canada for safer banking investments than the U.S. banks, Matt and David explore whether Canada has its own "too big to fail" banks. They discuss the Canadian banks that would be comparable with the largest banks in the U.S., and the stringent capital standards that these large Canadian banks are held to.

In a sea of mismanaged and dangerous peers, it's The Only Big Bank Built To Last. You can uncover the top pick that Warren Buffett loves in The Motley Fool's new report.
