This is a great time to be a banker


Recommended Posts

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 :)

    • Stay informed on the latest market trends with our expert analysis of the US stock indices: SP500, NASDAQ, Dow Jones, and Russell 2000. Our analysis suggests the current decline in the market is corrective and could turn into a full five-wave impulse move, leading to a deeper drop. Keep a close eye on the USD DXY as the Federal Reserve's meeting on Wednesday may impact the market. If 102 serves as a support for the dollar, it could result in further gains for the dollar and losses for global indices, forex, and commodities.
