Bundesbank president questions troika report. Bundesbank president questions troika report Eurozone finance ministers are expected to receive the troika’s report on the state of Greece’s finances and the progress of its consolidation program on Monday but the head of Germany’s central bank, Jens Weidmann, has questioned how impartial the survey might be given that politicians had already decided to continue funding Athens.

Bundesbank president questions troika report

“How can you objectively assess the completion of the program if you are too afraid of the consequences of a negative conclusion?” Weidmann said to the Rheinische Post newspaper on Saturday. “I am relying on the fact the troika will deliver both an unembellished and honest assessment of the situation in Greece before payments are delivered.” The four most surprising things about the European bank stress tests.

Presenting Total Bank Assets As A Percentage Of Host Countries' GDP. With the threat of sovereign default and contagion now pervasive within the Eurozone periphery, it is relevant to quantify the relative exposure of various banking centers' assets as a percentage of host countries' total GDP.

Presenting Total Bank Assets As A Percentage Of Host Countries' GDP

The reason for this is that in Europe for many countries a sovereign default would not have as great an impact, as a risk-flaring contagion impacting these countries' primary financial entities, whose assets account in some cases for multiples of host GDP. For example in Switzerland, the assets of the top two banks, UBS and Credit Suisse, alone account for nearly 600% of the country's GDP. And while Switzerland is relatively isolated from the budget and deficit crises in the PIIGS and STUPIDs, other countries such as Italy, Belgium and ultimately France, Germany and the UK, are much more exposed.

Compare that to the top 5 banks in the US (a list which excludes hedge funds such as Goldman Sachs). Banks’ holding in government bonds slip as foreign investors triple share - Gayatri Nayak & Saikat Das, ET Bureau Apr 21, 2015, 04.00AM IST (The share of commercial…) MUMBAI: Commercial banks' dominance over government bonds may be diminishing with their share of the market falling by almost 2 percentage points over the last one year, when foreign investors nearly tripled their holdings.

Insurers and mutual funds have also raised their ownership of government papers, given such high yields may not return for many years. The share of commercial banks in government bonds has dipped to 42.77 per cent in December 2014 from 44.73 per cent a year earlier, according to the latest data from the Reserve bank of India. The RBI has gradually lowered the level of deposits that a commercial bank must park in government papers. Historically, it has been observed that banks tend to park more funds in G-secs during the period of low credit offtake while they sell their bond portfolio when credit demand picks up.

Why Are Switzerland’s Foreign Assets so Low? The Growing Financial Exposure. Griechenland: Ein Grexit ist so nah wie fern - Griechenland - FAZ. Courtesy of the recently declassified Fed discount window documents, we now know that the biggest beneficiaries of the Fed's generosity during the peak of the credit crisis were foreign banks, among which Belgium's Dexia was the most troubled, and thus most lent to, bank.

Having been thus exposed, many speculated that going forward the US central bank would primarily focus its "rescue" efforts on US banks, not US-based (or local branches) of foreign (read European) banks: after all that's what the ECB is for, while the Fed's role is to stimulate US employment and to keep US inflation modest. And furthermore, should the ECB need to bail out its banks, it could simply do what the Fed does, and monetize debt, thus boosting its assets, while concurrently expanding its excess reserves thus generating fungible capital which would go to European banks. Wrong. For those who can't wait for the punchline, here it is. So how did cash held by US banks fare during QE2? BNP Paribas Securities Corp. ‎ The drop in US bond yields is perhaps the biggest surprise for investors this year.

The gradual decline in Federal Reserve buying, faster growth and the prospects for a rate hike in 2015 were expected to lift bond yields. Who would buy US Treasuries when the largest buyer was pulling back and yields would inevitably rise? Moreover, with China's current account having been reduced and reserve growth slowing (and went into reverse in Q3), and less reserve accumulation, foreign central banks' demand was likely to soften. In fact, some central bank, like Russia, and a few other central banks, appeared to be liquidating some Treasury holdings to defend their currencies. Indeed, over the past four weeks, the Federal Reserve's custody holdings of Treasuries for foreign central banks have fallen by $48.5 bln.

A run on a bank occurs when a large number of depositors, fearing that their bank will be unable to repay their deposits in full and on time, simultaneously try to withdraw their funds immediately.

This may create a problem because banks keep only a small fraction of deposits on hand in cash; they lend out the majority of deposits to borrowers or use the funds to purchase other interest-bearing assets such as government securities. When a run comes, a bank must quickly increase its cash to meet depositors’ demands. EU banks slash sovereign holdings.

If the Bank of England is going to do more QE, it should get ultra adventur. The Bank of England. As regular readers will know, I'm not in favour of a new programme of "quantitative easing" for the UK in current circumstances. Not until there is an extreme deflationary threat does it strike me as warranted. That moment may come soon enough, but we are not yet there. Yet perhaps I've been a little too dogmatic here, for I have assumed that any fresh programme of QE from the Bank of England would, as before, target mainly UK government bonds (gilt edged stock), where yields are already at record lows and where adding yet another source of demand to markets where investors seem unprepared to invest in anything else other than gilts would seem to be close to insane. If the rate of interest on bonds is already close to zero, it's not clear that pushing it marginally lower still would persuade investors to put their money in higher risk assets.

As an asset class, emerging market currencies have offered a profitable and comparatively secure investment in the emerging markets for more than a decade. This is especially noteworthy since investors seeking to profit from emerging market growth do not immediately think about currencies as an asset class, although these currencies could make a substantial contribution to future returns in a diversified portfolio. In the recently published UBS study "Emerging market currencies: The case for an underappreciated asset class," analysts from UBS CIO Wealth Management Research examine the asset class's characteristics and qualities.
