• Barclays: finding heads for spikes

    The charging of four Barclays executives and the group itself on Tuesday after a UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigation might, at last, satisfy the public desire to see bankers banged up. But it’s hard to see what else it will achieve.

The FIG Idea

  • 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?

    Almost D-day then. Not the commemoration of unforgettable bravery and selflessness on the the Normandy beaches, you understand, but The Day of Despair more commonly known as Return To Work. I feel like an ex-con who, having violated the terms of his probation, has been hauled off back to the slammer by the parole board to serve out the remainder of a life sentence for a crime which I did not commit.
