FCF
Bank Monitor

On a quarterly basis, FCF published its FCF Bank Monitor.  The FCF Bank Monitor is a research report, based on publicly available data, on the most active and largest 22 banking institutions addressing the German and Austrian Mittelstand.  It supports CFOs and Heads of Treasury in the selection of their long-term banking partners, following the motto “Know-Your-Bank”.

FCF BANK MONITOR

The FCF Bank Monitor includes:

 

  • Credit Default Swaps:  Analysis of the 1-, 5- and 10-year Credit Default Swap-Spreads (CDS-Spreads), which serve as a forward-looking risk indicator within the banking sector.
  • Rating:  Rating information of the big-3 rating agencies.
  • Performance:  Key fundamental performance indicators for financial institutions.
  • Bank Ranking:  A ranking based on above criteria provides insight into the health and market perspective of the individual banking institutions, in addition to highlighting the relative performance between the institutions.
  • League Table:  Most active banks in German and Austrian mid-cap segments by lending volume.

Key findings of the Q4/2023 FCF Bank Monitor:

 

  • After a turbulent and volatile first half year 2023, CDS spreads of both, domestic and foreign banks, started to decline in Q4/23, reflecting the market’s confidence in a “soft landing” of the European economy and declining risk within the banking industry.
  • The Q4 2023-league table is headed by BayernLB, ING and Crédit AgricoleBNP Paribas is the biggest winner with gaining four ranks over the last 3 months and with a top-10 rank for the first time during the last 4 quarters.
  • On average, the mean CDS spreads of German banks are still trading somewhat above their foreign peers, driven by a more pessimistic outlook for the German economy.
