European Banking: Key Themes in 2020

With prolonged ultra-low interest rates affecting European banks’ revenues, in 2020 it will be key for banks to reduce operating costs further, while maintaining necessary investments in IT, regulatory and compliance requirements. Other key themes that DBRS Morningstar considers important in 2020 include the importance of banks having adequate controls in place to manage operational risks, regulators and investors making increasing demands on banks to recognise the impact of climate change, and further reductions in non-performing loans (NPLs) in high NPL countries.

Slowdown in Asia could complicate HSBC’s strategic plans

In February HSBC will announce the details of a major restructuring, and this is likely to result in material expenses in subsequent quarters. The new plan comes as Hong Kong suffered the first decline in GDP growth since the financial crisis and the economic outlook for Asia has weakened. The economic environment is likely to add to pressure on profitability and represents a challenge to the goal of redeploying more capital into faster growth and higher return markets.
