    Curve Flattening Implies Market at Odds With Fed Optimism

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 16 Jun 2017

    In the week just passed, the bond market’s theme was of a flattening yield curve as the Fed delivered what glibly could be called a ‘hawkish’ hike while some key economic indicators like CPI and Retail Sales fell well short of expectations. For context, 2s reached new yield highs as the Fed adhered to its projections for more hikes, i.e. the dot plot, while 10s slipped to new yield lows last seen two days after the Presidential election and filling a gap left from that day.

    By David Ader 05 Jun 2017

    The Red Flags You’re Missing Because of Antiquated Customer Satisfaction Data

    By Susan Hines 11 May 2017

    These days, providing exceptional customer service won’t keep customers happy or win you new ones. It sounds strange. The first lesson in Business 101 is that a happy, loyal customer feeds the engine that drives profits and growth. Satisfied customers love your brand, recommend you to friends and family and would never consider switching banks. A high promoter score means you’re making all the right moves to ensure a prosperous future. Wrong.

    Why Customer Data Is Nothing Without Strategy

    By Susan Hines 10 May 2017

    Banks are in the data business. They have long had access to more consumer data than almost any other segment of corporate America. The value of that very data can’t be overstated. It means they can create more targeted and cost-effective marketing campaigns, develop products and offers specifically tailored to customers’ wants and needs and even develop better ways to determine a customer’s creditworthiness and detect fraud.

    Customers Are Complex. So Why Is the Data Polling Them Not?

    By Susan Hines 08 May 2017

    Bank customers have changed dramatically over the past decade, as has their relationship with the banks they use. Yet, the way banks study and evaluate these very complex customers hasn’t kept pace. That means the data banks are collecting on customers won’t help them to make decisions on service now or in the future.

    Fed Gets a bit Stubborn Plus a Teaser to Demographic Work

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 05 May 2017

    In the week just passed most Treasury yields rose a bit with the curve flattening in the process. It’s really a tale of two curves; the front part vs. the back end. The front end dealt with an FOMC statement that didn’t offer any serious surprises but did affirm that a June hike was on the proverbial table. The back end, specifically 30s, outperformed for different reasons.
