Banking Sector Myths Exposed

The financial sector has understandably been a hot topic over the past few years and is a subject we’ve blogged about at great length. Given the constant newsflow around the sector, and of course due to popular demand, Ben Lord and Stefan Isaacs recently joined forces with Jeffrey Spencer, a senior member of our financial institutions credit research team, to share our current views.

We thought these two teleconferences would be of interest for our readers as Jeffrey uncovers the truth behind some common misconceptions about the state of the banking system.

From a fundamental research perspective, Jeffrey analyses a range of issues, including the extent to which banks have de-levered, their reliance on wholesale funding as well as the challenges they are facing in raising capital.

Our fund managers took this opportunity to restate their views about financials from a more macroeconomic and sector allocation perspective.

There are two versions, similar to each other, but one is aimed at a more European audience, whilst the other is slightly more UK focused.

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
