The Treasury Hub Update - December 2019

We bring you the final Banking and Treasury Report of 2019 as part of THE TREASURY HUB.

The current focus appears to be on politics worldwide. The UK election is now in full swing, the US presidential election is also gearing up while the current Irish government is moving into its last months. Brexit news was negligible in the past month as the outcome of the UK election will dictate a lot of what is to come in 2020 on that topic.

2019 was a good year for equity investors and borrowers, a bad year for bank deposits and a reasonably stable year for currencies, especially USD.

Section 5 of this month’s report focuses on the banking sector and prospects for 2020.
