Spotlight: Lifestyle Banking The story so far for Tinkoff Bank

By Maksim Evdokimov 18 Dec 2018

Tinkoff was founded by Russian entrepreneur Oleg Tinkov in 2006, inspired by the US Capital One direct bank model with the ambition of having a successful branchless bank in Russia. In less than 12 years, Tinkoff grew into Russia’s largest purely online bank by a number of customers, and transformed itself into a customer-centric ecosystem which offers both financial and lifestyle services, covering almost any customer need connected to spending. Max Evdokimov joined Tinkoff in 2013 with the task of enhancing Tinkoff’s digital services offering, right after the company held an IPO on the LSE. Read more...

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 12.17.18

By Ryan Nauman 17 Dec 2018

For the first half of the week it looked like equities may finish the week in the green. The optimism came to a halt after Japan, China, and Europe released disappointing economic data, which stoked global growth concerns. Retail sales and industrial production in China missed expectations, while the Eurozone released disappointing flash PMIs. This poor economic data coincides with continued trade concerns, an Italian budget standoff, and continued uncertainty around Brexit, after Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 12.10.18

By Ryan Nauman 10 Dec 2018

During their meeting, Trump and Xi agreed to a trade truce and put a 90-day cease fire on the trade war. Markets opened higher Monday on the news. White House economic advisor, Larry Kudlow said that trade negations will happen quickly and result in a positive outcome within the 90 days. Questions remain, as conflicting statements from the White House regarding the start date of the 90-day truce added to the uncertainty. With time to digest the news, the Monday’s gains were quickly wiped away as the week moved alon. Read more from Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap and subscribe to have it delivered to your inbox each week!

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 12.03.18

By Ryan Nauman 04 Dec 2018

All eyes will be on the much anticipated high-stakes meeting between U.S. President Trump and China President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit this weekend. Optimism is growing for a deal to be hatched, which I find unlikely. There are too many moving parts to conjure up a grand deal over a dinner date. Instead, I look for a constructive meeting that gives Trump enough motivation to delay/remove the upcoming increase in existing 10% tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods to 25%, while the two sides negotiate a trade pact. I think both sides are looking for some momentum – President Trump recently lost control of the House of Representatives and is looking for a “win”, while the Chinese economy is struggling and in need of a boost – which will lead to softened tones and a more constructive discussion.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 11.26.18

By Ryan Nauman 26 Nov 2018

Homebuilder confidence, measured by the National Association of Home Builders’ monthly confidence index, fell eight points to a reading of 60 in November. The 60 reading is the lowest since 2016 and missed forecasts of a flat reading. Effecting confidence was the increasing material costs, tight labor market, rising mortgage rates, and the shrinking supply of lots. Housing starts increased to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.228 million in October, which was a 1.5% increase according to the Commerce Department. The reading was a 2.9% decline from a year earlier. Permits decreased 0.6% from September and was 6% lower than the year prior. Additionally, housing affordability continues to drop due to increasing mortgage rates and home prices.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 11.19.18

By Ryan Nauman 19 Nov 2018

The Q3 earnings growth is on pace to be the largest growth since 2010. Despite the stellar earnings growth, markets have been volatile with sharp intra-day moves since the beginning of October. Investors have looked past the stellar earnings while focusing more on headline risks and securing profits rather than capitalizing on the solid earnings and falling valuations. There are notable risks at play - slowing global growth, trade concerns, and rising interest rates – which will continue for the time being. These risks have caused investors to take a defensive stance and until the risks subside, namely trade concerns, while we experienced heightened volatility. A resolution to trade will provide a much-needed boost to equities and help ease some global growth concerns.
