  • The investment banking industry staged a strong comeback in 2009. Net revenues (before write-downs) jumped nearly 50 percent to $311 billion, up from $213 billion in 2008. The recovery was fueled by trading revenues, particularly in fixed income. The surge in revenues, coupled with cost controls, resulted in a profit margin of 24 percent (the profit margin in 2006, by comparison, was 22 percent).

  • The Mobility Manifesto: A report on cost-effective ways to achieve greater social mobility through education, based on work by the Boston Consulting Group

    The analysis, undertaken by the Boston Consulting Group, suggests that the UK's economy would see cumulative losses of up to £1.3 trillion in GDP over the next 40 years if we fail to bring the educational outcomes of children from poorer homes up to the UK average.

In many markets, regulatory moves are pressuring fees, with unfavorable deposit spreads and poor consumer-credit quality compounding the difficulties. Branch-driven revenue growth is becoming harder to achieve. Yet branches remain the primary driver of market share for consumer and small-business relationships, as well as the anchor channel for retaining high-value customers. Banks need a clear strategy to raise branch-network performance to the next level.
