This is a great time to be a banker

When markets slumped in March as the spread of coronavirus gathered pace, wealth managers’ trading volumes soared as ultra rich clients reshuffled their portfolios.

...

UBS received up to 4 million quote requests a day from private clients in the quarter - double the December level of such enquiries about potential transactions - while its advisers conducted tens of thousands of portfolio reviews each month.

While banks that are more focused on commercial lending set aside billions in provisions, the big wealth managers have found that banking for billionaires has swelled their own coffers with outsized transaction fees even as the global economy takes a battering from the coronavirus crisis.

Millenials are getting tired😉

 

"LONDON (Reuters) - There is broad backing in stock markets for cutting the trading day by 90 minutes in a coordinated way across European exchanges, the London Stock Exchange said on Monday.

The LSE published feedback from its public consultation on making trading hours more family-friendly to help diversify trading desks and improve mental wellbeing."

Read the FY20 IG Group

Seems they did ok, 

"IG has not had a loss-making day since 2015."

Maybe some Pro did a bad oiltrade?

"a very small number of Professional clients for which we went ahead and took some provisions for"

Looks like they have a majority female leadership team now.  Is that what's meant by equality, then?  Replacing male domination with female domination?  ROFL

 

The huge spike of daily client trading seen in Q4 dwarfed those periods, and it was sustained
throughout the quarter. The sheer quantum of these trading volumes and applications, shows
why we continue to invest in our technology and operations infrastructure, to deliver the
scalability and resilience in keeping with our growth opportunities

 

It probably also helps when your IT system falls on its @rse so that you can stop people from trading during periods of very high volatility :)

    • Hi Anda, Thanks for the response. Could I ask you to clarify a few points please so that my understanding is correct: 1) when you say the ETF is not ISA eligible - do you mean specifically the ETFs that I mentioned (IDTG and ZROZ) or do you mean all US Government bond ETFs are not ISA eligible? 2) are you able to share any ETFs linked to US Government bonds that are ISA eligible or point me towards where I can find this out? 3) could you expand a little on what you mean by "we only offer US ETFs to professional traders at this point". What do you mean by US ETFs? Do you mean any/all ETFs specifically linked to US Government bonds (even if they are traded on the FTSE) or does this just include US Government bond ETFs traded in the US, or all US ETFs in general (including those not linked to Gov bonds)? Thanks!

    • FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 hold their ground in early trading FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 hold their ground in early trading. Source: Bloomberg   Indices Shares Market trend S&P 500 DAX FTSE 100 Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 28 September 2022  FTSE 100 hovers at July support The index is sitting right at the 7050 support zone, which held back in July. A drop below 7000 marks a fresh bearish development, and would bring the 6874 level into view, last seen in March. Given the recent run of losses we might perhaps expect a rebound of sorts to develop, although for this to happen we would need to see a recovery above 7060, and then on above 7120. A longer-term bounce targets 7500 and then 7570, the highs from September and then August, respectively. Source: ProRealTime DAX probes recent lows There is little sign of a rebound here, with the index still close to Friday’s lows. A move back above the February and June lows of 12,400 would help to provide a more short-term bullish view, although the broader bearish outlook remains in place. Lower highs have been in place over recent months, so it would need a move above 13,500 to put a dent in this outlook. Further declines target 11,700, eating into yet more of the post-Covid rebound. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 edges up off recent low June’s lows have been reached, after a huge decline since late August. If this level holds then the index may yet be able to stage a short-term bounce, targeting 3800 and then on towards 3900. The bigger bearish view remains intact however, given the lower high at 4127. The next major level to watch is 3582, and then on below that down to 3400. Source: ProRealTime
