Treasury Hub Update - May 2020 966.89 KB

This is the May edition of THE TREASURY HUB Banking and Treasury Markets Bulletin. Despite the ongoing pandemic, there has been a bounce back in equity markets and a settling down of the interest rate markets following last month's volatility. EUR/GBP has also remained relatively stable for the month, however the decision on whether or not to extend the Brexit deadline date of 31 December 2020 will soon come into focus. FX volatility should therefore be accounted for in forecasts and budgets and it's management will increasingly be a key facet in the approval or otherwise of bank facilities and grant applications. So, as mentioned in last month's bulletin, poor currency management will likely cause a “triple whammy”: lower profits, higher interest costs and tighter loan terms and conditions. We continue to focus on banking in Section 5 of the bulletin.

March edition of the Banking and Treasury Report 981.79 KB

The outbreak of the coronavirus continues to disrupt global supply chains and the financial markets. Unsurprisingly, the equity markets are bearing the brunt of the initial negative sentiment with the three equity indices that we track (ISEQ, FTSE and DOW) all in significant negative return territory. Bond prices are up again (as interest rates have fallen) with Irish 10-year rates now negative -0.15%, which is an all-time low. Oil prices have also fallen off a cliff. This is covered in more detail in Section 4.This month’s focus in Section 5 is a review of the Banking Market. While the banks appear to be taking a proactive and supportive approach to assisting businesses, the coronavirus is going to make credit availability tighter. We would encourage clients to act now and make contact with your bank to ensure you get the specific support you need as quickly as possible. The government has also announced a number of measures to help individuals and businesses, including an extra €200m funding through SBCI.Please get in touch with our Corporate Finance team if we can be of any assistance.
