May 2023 | Our assessment is that most banks are much better prepared to withstand financial volatility today than they were in 2008-9. As a result of the systematic application of much greater regulatory oversight, US banks have much higher levels of equity capital, better funding and liquidity, less leverage and much lower asset risk. With the potential for stronger supervision and regulation across the sector, we suggest investors carefully select securities from larger, well-capitalized banks with diversified business models and conservative lending strategies.
01 | Despite alarms of “financial system contagion” highlighted by recent headlines, we believe that recent banking failures are not representative of the industry as a whole.
02 | As a result of the relative attractiveness of issuer yields and spreads, we believe that US global systemically important banks offer compelling, long-term value.
03 | With the potential for stronger supervision and regulation across the sector, we suggest investors carefully select securities from larger, well-capitalized banks with diversified business models and conservative lending strategies.
