"Though banks have recently been churning out their highest profits in more than a decade, there's trouble brewing beneath the rosy performance metrics, according to the consulting firm McKinsey.

The threat is largely tied to the ongoing shift of balance-sheet activities and transactions away from traditional banks to nonbank institutions, McKinsey warns in its 2023 annual review of global banking. That migration has gained such scale that banking is now at 'a tipping point' that could 'fundamentally alter the nature' of the industry, the McKinsey report states."
