We bring you the first Banking and Treasury Report of 2020 as part of THE TREASURY HUB. This report looks back at 2019 trends and looks forward at possible 2020 developments.
Brexit dominated for most of 2019 while politics dictated worldwide events in general. The UK elected a new Prime Minister while the US presidential election started to gear up. 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.
