THE TREASURY HUB UPDATE - FEBRUARY 2020 1.19 MB

We bring you the second Banking and Treasury Report of 2020 as part of THE TREASURY HUB. Brexit came back onto the agenda at the end of January as the UK officially entered into the transition period. The general election kicked into gear here in Ireland with a lot of spending promises being made, all of which appear to be predicated on an orderly exit deal for the UK…. an assumption which may yet prove to be flawed.From an investment perspective the year got off to a negative start with the three equity indices that we track (ISEQ, FTSE and DOW) all deteriorating in January and a lot of the blame being attributed to the outbreak of the coronavirus in China. EUR/GBP held around EUR/GBP0.8450, especially as the UK exited the EU but with the “hard line” opening negotiation position being taken by PM Johnson last week, we have seen GBP lose 1p against EUR in a single day and move back to EUR/GBP0.8500. We expect further GBP weakness in the weeks ahead. This month’s focus in Section 5 is on the area of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).

Ireland will also see a new government elected in 2020.From an investment perspective it was a good year for equity investors, a bad year for bank deposits, a good year for bond investors while on the currency front EUR/GBP bounced around quite a bit but EUR/USD remained very stable again. Section 5 of this report focuses on the prospects for 2020.

The Treasury Hub - November 2019 Report 1.28 MB

This is the November 2019 issue of the Treasury Hub report, as we continue to bring you our regular Banking and Treasury Report as part of THE TREASURY HUB.The deadline date for the UK to trigger its exit from the EU came and went. The next date is January 31st (or sooner if agreed by parliament) but with an election now called, there remains a risk that “no deal” could still arise. The EUR/GBP exchange rate has held steady around EUR/GBP0.8600, a level that broadly reflects a deal, but the risk is very much on GBP weakening again in the event of no deal.Regardless of Brexit fatigue, it will continue to dominate the business landscape in 2020. Even if the UK meets the transition exit date of January 31st, the current scheduled date for leaving the EU is December 31st 2020, with a possible 2-year extension if requested. In that regard, 2020 budgets will have to reflect this continuing uncertainty. Make sure to read section 5 which focuses on the economic outlook and how it may impact on your company budgets for 2020.
