  • EU-US equivalence deal gives hope for Brexit

    The European Commission’s formal recognition of US derivative trading platforms this week had been in the pipeline for some time. But at a time of so much global friction, it was welcome good news.

  • Steinhoff a disaster for South Africa

The FIG Idea

  • The FIG Idea: Runners and Riders for the Basel Race

    The FIG Idea studies the form for bank capital's most important competition of the year — set to run this October (or perhaps not).

  • The FIG Idea: assume the recovery position

    When Banco Popular lost the market's confidence, it ran out of road. Realistic assumptions for recovery rates on bad assets plunged to super-conservative levels. Confidence is the greatest form of solvency, its withdrawal a precursor to insolvency.

  • Close encounters with a third kind (of capital)

    Soon, banks will have more TLAC and MREL than equity. The new bond classes are a immensely important part of the financial structure of a bank, but the risks to investors aren’t yet clear. Just how will this alien new instrument class behave — or misbehave?

The Pained Trader

  • The Pained Trader: it was not a very good year

    2017 was worse than the year before it but it will prove better than next. It was 12 months of contrasting fortunes though oscillating not between the good and the bad but between the merely sup-optimal and the truly excremental. As always, it was the latter which prevailed and stuck to our shoes.

  • Coining It

    “If you see a bandwagon, it’s already too late” is a defeatist philosophy to which I’ve never subscribed. Consequently, I have watched many of them rattle past, everyone aboard whooping and hollering, and chased them down the road through the dust as they disappeared out of sight en route to the Happy Lands, that undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveller returns.
