    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 06.24.19

    The week ahead is filled with speeches from Federal Reserve officials and data on the housing and industrial sectors. I will be looking forward to the release of the durable goods data, particularly the core capex orders on Wednesday. Business investment has been slow, largely due to the uncertainties around trade, which has been a headwind for economic growth. An uptick in business investment would provide a boost for the economy and manufacturing sector. Read more from Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap and subscribe to have it delivered to your inbox each week!

    Inside this week’s edition of The Context, Financial Intelligence thought leaders discuss: Negative Yield Explosion The ECB, and to a lesser extent the Fed, set off a ‘hunt for yield’ which sent yields tumbling and the volume of negative yielding debt soaring to nigh on $13 trillion globally Euro Corp Comment: NICs Head Sub-Zero In a week where ECB president Draghi signalled that another round of stimulus may be forthcoming and the Fed also out-doved markets, corporate issuance kept ticking along nicely with another 16 tranches printing for a combined EUR8.65bn.

    Latin American Bank Client Case Study

    LATAM Bank has been a client of Informa Financial Intelligence since 2014 and subscribes to weekly/monthly bond fund flows for all fund groups, fund level detail. Our main sponsor at LATAM Bank and his team of analysts use EPFR to better understand where there is opportunity to grow their investor base, to obtain technical data points to refer to when speaking with customers, and to analyse movement in local and hard currency. When asked about the value the data has brought to this business, our sponsor commented, “EPFR provides us with additional colour on where inflows and outflows are coming from to help us connect what is going on in the market and why. There is not a lot of reporting for LATAM and EPFR gives us the breadth and depth of coverage that others could not.” Read more...

    Challengers vs. Incumbents: The battle for account primacy

    Challengers vs. Incumbents: The battle for account primacy

    The financial services market has seen a wave of new challengers enter the retail banking space and since the mid-2000s, they have announced impressive statistical landmarks. The challengers are gaining share but how serious is the threat of them taking primary accounts from the incumbents? This blog piece by Drew Hallewell compares a recent Monzo landmark event against our performance data to explore that very question.

    China Insight: Impact of Baoshang Takeover on The Onshore Debt Market

    By Tim Cheung 18 Jun 2019

    China Insight 0618

    On 24 May, PBOC and CBIRC jointly announced to take over Baoshang Bank for one year due to serious credit risk. As far as we are aware, Baoshang Bank already showed multiple red flags on credit risk in 2017, with 28.8% y/y asset growth, around 30% of assets in receivable investments, 46% of loans in unsecured lending, and a decline of total CAR to 9.3% in the same year (vs the minimum requirement of 10.5% in the same year). We are surprised that the regulators did not step in until it was confirmed that 6 out of Baoshang's top 10 debtors had already defaulted on their debt obligations.

    Central bank support boosts Equity Fund flows in mid-June

    By Cameron Brandt 18 Jun 2019

    Central bank support boosts Equity Fund flows in mid-June With the US Federal Reserve voicing support for the goal of sustaining the current recovery, the Bank of Japan continuing to run its ultra-accommodative monetary program and the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) committed to ‘targeted stimulus’, equity investors made a return during the second week of June. EPFR-tracked US, Japan and China Equity Funds all took in fresh money, enabling Equity Funds overall to post inflows for only the second time since mid-March.

    The Context 06.17.19

    Inside this week’s edition of The Context, Financial Intelligence thought leaders discuss: The Yen Week – Bias is Neutral Thursday is BOJ day in Japan, considered one of the smaller monetary policy meetings as there are no new forecasts on GDP and inflation. Kuroda and co are widely expected to keep its 'QQE with yield curve control' policy unchanged. However, a number of firms are unsurprisingly indicating that the strength of the Yen could be a focus. Euro Volume Jumps as Investors Grab for Duration Despite a 4-day week after Whit Monday, Euro-denominated primary issuance surged to EUR54.46bn, to produce the second highest volume week YTD. Sovereigns led supply, capitalising on the plunge in EGB yields as the 5yr/5yr EUR inflation swap rate hit a record low. Long-Term FX Forecast: 1.10-1.15 EUR/USD Despite Fed Pricing The Euro is doing okay. It's the second best performer so far in Q2 vs the USD (albeit miles behind the Yen, i.e. +0.7% vs +2.2%), while in June its gains are being outpaced by just the likes of the CAD and NOK.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 06.17.19

    The FOMC meeting and subsequent press conference from Federal Reserve Chairman Powell will be the highlight of the week. Expectations for a rate cut during this meeting are low, however, Powell’s statements will be widely critiqued. Investors will be focusing on every word to try and gauge if and when the Fed may cut rates.With the solid retail sales and labor market, I don’t expect the Fed to cut rates during this meeting. However, in addition to their policy on interest rates, I will be listening closely for an update on their economic outlook and the corresponding risks, as well as any insights regarding their balance sheet.

    China Insight: White Paper Could Kick-Off Long March

    By Tim Cheung 11 Jun 2019

    China Insight 0611

    We saw a further escalation of the US-China trade war during the last week of May. After hinting at a potential restriction of rare earth exports to the US and announcing a plan to list out unreliable foreign companies, Beijing released a white paper putting all the blame on the US for the collapse of the trade talks and stressing China will not make any concessions to the US on the principal issues.

    Inside this week’s edition of The Context, Financial Intelligence thought leaders discuss: Chinese Issuers Dominate a Slow May Chinese issuers were even more dominant than usual as a percentage of overall APAC US$ primary volume, placing US$15.528bn of combined offshore bonds which equated to 78.5% of the total amount issued during the month. The GBP Week – Bias is Bearish Markets have obviously not been listening too closely to the MPC's chief economist Haldane. He argued late Friday the time is nearing for a hike. So much for following other G10 CBs with a dovish turn, Haldane says an early rate rise would provide insurance amid likely steady 1.5% 2019 growth and a 1.5% rise in real wages when Brexit uncertainty ends. USD/RUB Could Take Out 66 on Brent Trigger Below USD60/brl The escalation in trade wars over the past two weeks has sent oil prices tumbling, as markets begin to price in a protracted and entrenched dispute between the US and China.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 06.10.19

    This week’s highlight will come in the form of the CPI reading. Inflation has captured the attention of many, as it remains stubbornly low despite a historically tight labor market, rising wages, and price pressure from tariffs. The low inflation is a primary talking point for the Federal Reserve and one they will continue to monitor moving forward, while investors are calling for lower interest rates due to the muted inflation. Based on this week’s market reaction, markets will applaud muted inflation, which should add pressure on the Fed to cuts rates.
