Treasury Hub Update - December 21 868.74 KB

Welcome to the last edition of THE TREASURY HUB Banking and Treasury Markets Bulletin of 2021. Interest rates will be top of the list of items to watch in 2022, especially after the hike by the Bank of England at the December meeting. GBP Libor will be no more as of the 1st January 2022. Whether inflation is sustained during 2022 will be a key driver of central bank decisions.On the currency front, GBP had a much better year with most of the Brexit-related uncertainties out of the way. USD also had a strong year primarily driven by rising interest rates (and expectations of same). From an investment perspective, stock markets performed very well over the year but the big story was the large increase in Oil prices given the wide knock-on effect of this. Section 5 in this Bulletin looks ahead to 2022 and what the new year might look like for the banking and treasury markets.

The Treasury Hub - November 2021 1.13 MB

This is the latest edition of THE TREASURY HUB Banking and Treasury Markets Bulletin of 2021. A lot has happened since the end of the Summer and it looks like it is going to be a busy run into Christmas and (most probably) a volatile start to 2022.Growing fears about the pace and scale of inflation globally has led to a re-assessment by the market of the prospects for long-term interest rates. In addition to this, Libor is disappearing for GBP loans from December 31st (so hopefully your documentation and systems are prepared!). Corporate activity remains buoyant with sellers continuing to achieve strong multiple of earnings across the majority of sectors.On the currency front, GBP has continued to strengthen and has recently dipped below 84p against EUR, bringing it back to where it started in the week or so after the Brexit vote in June 2016. USD has had an even better run and is over 8% lower (stronger) against EUR than it was at the start of the year. From an investment perspective, stock markets performed well over the Summer but have been jumpy over the past few weeks.Section 5 in this Bulletin looks at interest rates and inflation.

The Treasury Hub Update - April 2021 958.23 KB

Welcome to the fourth edition of THE TREASURY HUB Banking and Treasury Markets Bulletin of 2021. Domestically and internationally, there is increased focus on the speed of the vaccine rollout and, hopefully, a gradual return to normality.But the one sector that is looking anything but normal is the Irish banking sector with the announcement of the exit of KBC from the market. Following on from the Ulster Bank announcement the previous month, the SME and Business Banking offerings will be dominated by a duopoly of AIB and Bank of Ireland. The growth of PTSB and the non-bank providers will be crucial for the wider macroeconomic development of the country.On the currency front, the last week has seen USD retreat but GBP rebound. Both currencies are stronger against EUR since the start of the year. Although the cost of borrowing has increased for most governments in 2021, the move has stalled in Eurozone and UK but US rates continue to ease up as inflation prospects continue to be very actively debated (is it returning for the medium-term or just a temporary phenomenon?). Economic outlook for the US looks very positive at the minute.From an investment perspective, stock market trends are generally upwards again after some pause for breath. Coinbase was a high profile IPO in the US while the Deliveroo flotation in London was a disappointment. Finally, Section 5 covers interest rates, especially the spectre of negative deposit rates and considers if we can do anything to mitigate their impact.

The Treasury Hub Update - March 2021 1007.78 KB

Welcome to the third edition of THE TREASURY HUB Banking and Treasury Markets Bulletin of 2021. It is 12 months since the first lockdown and the seismic impact on all of our lives. The changes required in the way we work have accelerated trends that had been emerging, but not all of it is negative. In fact, it could be a catalyst for a lot of positive developments. Of course, the impact has been very uneven – the hospitality/hotel sectors have been decimated while other sectors have thrived.
