Financials Outlook
Let’s examine some intriguing
trends expected for 2015 in the
U.S. financials sector:
Commercial Banks
U.S Bank Credit May Stay Stronger Longer, Supporting Profits
Net charge-off rates at U.S. banks have fallen to 2007 levels and
are less than 20% of the 2009 peak. With charge-off rates about
half long-term averages, leaving less room to further improve,
credit trends may become a risk to earnings instead of being a
potential profit driver.
Economic consensus suggests further improvement in U.S.
business and consumer financial health, mitigating this risk.
Regulators and investors may increasingly scrutinize lending for
signs that growing credit supply is leading to weaker underwriting
standards.
U.S.Bank Revenue at Risk Amid Slowing Global Growth Outlook
Bank revenue is supported by a steeper yield curve, and higher
interest rates may provide a more significant revenue boost. While
the Federal Reserve sets near-term rates, long-term rates reflect
economic expectations.
As the U.S. economy improves, the Fed may shift toward
tightening in 2015, though global growth concerns may hamper
these plans and suppress long-term yields. Geopolitical risk
and any related U.S. Treasury demand may put more downward
pressure on the yield curve.
Bank Legal Cost Relief After $140 Billion May Aid Capital Return
Legal risks remain for U.S. banks, as civil liability costs may extend
for years, potentially cutting profit and raising risk premiums for
stocks vs. historical averages.
The bulk of charges may be over, though, with $140 billion of
cumulative post-crisis legal and liability costs through October for
six large banks. This would create the potential in 2015 to funnel
more capital to shareholders. Through 3Q, these banks paid $25
billion of legal costs vs. $30 billion in shareholder capital returns.
Global Bank Too-Big-to-Fail Regulation May Drive Higher Costs
Capital buffers as a way to prevent systemic risk and end “too-big-
to-fail” may evolve in 2015 beyond core common equity hurdles
to define added loss-absorbing capital layers. The net effect will
likely be higher funding costs for global investment banks.
The Financial Stability Board has proposed standards for 30
banks deemed systemically important. Local rules may be even
more stringent. The result is a likely shift to higher-cost types of
funding. Issuance may also shift toward holding companies from
subsidiaries.
Investment Banks
Global Investment Banks Seek Cyclical Revenue,Profit Recovery
Global investment bank revenue has been suppressed since
the financial crisis as new regulations cut profitability. Cyclical
pressures have exacerbated the challenges in the last couple
of years, especially to the larger fixed income, currency and
commodities trading business.
Volatility rising from historically lower levels may aid revenue
and give a clearer picture as to how much of recent declines are
cyclical vs. secular.
Central Bank Assets of $11 Trillion and Growing May Pose Risk
Global central bank balance sheet increases are a financial crisis
legacy, with the ratio of assets-to-GDP across major economies
increasing up to 4x precrisis levels. Effects of ultimate support
unwinding are unknown, posing long-term risk.
At each stage with support set to wane, a catalyst arose to push
balances higher. As global growth risks cloud the outlook for
2015, U.S. plans for reduced support diverge with European and
Japanese statements supportive of further stimulus.
Exchanges
Recovery From Spain to Dubai May Boost $219 Billion of IPOs
The key to sustaining the pace of IPOs remains the economic
health of the global economy. This year marked the first IPOs in
Dubai for five years after the emirate’s poverty market collapsed.
BME expects more IPOs as confidence returns, citing a 500
bps narrowing in spreads between Spain’s 10-year bond and
equivalent maturity German bonds since ECB President Mario
Draghi pledged to save the euro in July 2012. About $219 billion
was raised in global IPOs by Nov. 7, 2014, a 14% increase on the
previous year.
Exchange Volumes Are Dependent on Return of Price Volatility
A surge in price volatility in October served as a timely reminder
that cyclical drives for trading volumes still exist. Deutsche Boerse
cited the volatility as an indication of why trading volumes are not
“structurally depressed.”
The VIX Index, a gauge of fear, jumped 61% in the first two weeks
in October, cumulating the U.S. equity markets processing 11.9
billion shares on Oct. 15, a record for the year and 87% higher
than the daily average for 2014, with the CME and CBOE posting
record trading days.
Dark Pools Battle Exchanges for $24 Trillion Stock Market Share
Scrutiny of alternative trading systems, which account for about
40% of the U.S. equity trades in the $24 trillion stock market, has
intensified after an investigation into Barclays dark pool prompted
allegations of fraud.
UBS and Deutsche Bank have also flagged potential litigation
over their dark pools and high-frequency traders, which the book
“Flash Boys” alleges have speed advantages over other market
participants. The battle for a share of trading between dark pools
and exchanges is likely to escalate in the year ahead.
Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect Paves Way for Asian Exchanges
The Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect may boost the Hong
Kong Exchange’s trading volume by as much as 25%, based on a
daily trading quota of 10.5 billion yuan ($1.7 billion). The program,
launched Nov. 17, lets qualified mainland investors buy Hong
Kong-listed stocks, while overseas investors can buy stocks listed
in China.
It may pave the way for similar links elsewhere and fuel trading
volume between Asian bourses, with China’s Shenzhen Stock
Exchange possibly partnering with Hong Kong or Japan’s Osaka
Stock Exchange.

  • 20. Recovery From Spain to Dubai May Boost $219 Billion of IPOs The key to sustaining the pace of IPOs remains the economic health of the global economy. This year marked the first IPOs in Dubai for five years after the emirate’s poverty market collapsed. BME expects more IPOs as confidence returns, citing a 500 bps narrowing in spreads between Spain’s 10-year bond and equivalent maturity German bonds since ECB President Mario Draghi pledged to save the euro in July 2012. About $219 billion was raised in global IPOs by Nov. 7, 2014, a 14% increase on the previous year.
  • 21.
  • 22. Exchange Volumes Are Dependent on Return of Price Volatility A surge in price volatility in October served as a timely reminder that cyclical drives for trading volumes still exist. Deutsche Boerse cited the volatility as an indication of why trading volumes are not “structurally depressed.” The VIX Index, a gauge of fear, jumped 61% in the first two weeks in October, cumulating the U.S. equity markets processing 11.9 billion shares on Oct. 15, a record for the year and 87% higher than the daily average for 2014, with the CME and CBOE posting record trading days.
