7 Is A Number Just

Over the past several months, there’s been hype about the prospect of the Chinese renminbi (RMB) weakening previous 7 per US money, despite no proof that 7 is a magical number. China’s central bank or investment company, the People’s Bank or investment company of China (PBOC), experienced rejected that it was centered on defending 7, and the IMF said it wasn’t significant.

So when the RMB finally broke 7, the mass media treated it as a dramatic event, but we believe, this will pass soon. It is likely that the timing of the move was deliberate, following president Trump’s latest round of tariffs. RMB devaluation: What happened? China, a haven of balance? We believe Xi Jinping is improbable to holiday resort to a substantial devaluation (which was not what occurred yesterday) to respond to Trump. China’s consumer story-the largest part of its economy-remains pretty healthy, as does the wage and employment growth, so there is absolutely no reason for Xi to stress. We expect this longer-term pattern to continue. Party hasn’t resorted to significant devaluation before, including during the Asian and Global Financial Crises.

However, it hasn’t changed it enough. Support and Technology staff need to view their backs. In the presentation accompanying its fourth quarter results, BNP said it plans to ‘streamline and mutuality’ its IT and back office services. It also plans to withdraw from unprofitable and subscale businesses and to close down peripheral locations.

More favorably, BNP plans to invest in its electronic trading platforms and to enhance the performance of its FX and derivatives businesses. It hasn’t been very granular about programs for its institutional clients group (ICG) in 2019. Over the bank or investment company as it plans to go after its ‘2020 financial focuses on’, including a 12% come back on tangible common equity and an improved efficiency percentage.

If anyone needs to watch their backs at Citi right now, it’s probably G10 rates traders. CFO John Gerspach blamed G10 rates traders for the bank’s 21% year-on-year decline in fourth one-fourth fixed income currencies and commodities earnings. Credit Suisse: Still no major cost slicing. It could be presumed that Credit Suisse must spend less in its markets business. After all, the carrying on business made two major losses in the fourth one-fourth and exceeded its cost goals. CEO Tidjane Thiam is, however, having none of it.

That in the bank’s fourth one-fourth investor call, adding that Credit Suisse’s global markets profits should increase as other banking institutions are trimming costs this season. From global markets Away, Credit Suisse’s strategy also remains unchanged. It’s still all about leveraging the partnership between the investment bank or investment company and the global wealth management business while ‘digitalizing’ whenever you can.

If you work in ‘International Trading Solutions’, which sits at the mix section between prosperity and marketplaces management, matter yourself lucky. Despite its avowal that “deep” restructuring has ended, Credit Suisse will still be trying out costs. CFO David Mathers says the bank is still engaged in “process reengineering” of both its front and back office divisions.

While rumors rumble on about Deutsche Bank’s potential merger with Commerzbank, DB bankers are supposed to be chasing revenue growth this year. Theoretically, cuts to leading office at Deutsche’s corporate and investment bank were done last year. From here on in, it’s about the extension. In the presentation accompanying its fourth one-fourth results, Deutsche said it plans to grow in “targeted areas.” This implies FX.

It also means “targeted employing in fix income and personal debt origination,” a few of which we’ve seen already. At the same time, there are signals that Deutsche is silently adding mind to its equities business. More ominously, Deutsche has increased its cost cutting target and there’s some skepticism that its income targets can be met (in which particular case the lender freely admits that costs may need to be cut more zealously).

Life at Goldman Sachs is on keep while the bank or investment company conducts an entrance to back review of its businesses under CEO David Solomon. The email address details are credited in ‘springtime’, so watch this space. Fixed income currencies and commodities will likely be hard hit – commodities job cuts were flagged last month by the Wall Street Journal.
