Germany Banking & Financial Services Q4 2019
There are plenty of headwinds facing Germany's banking and financial services industry at present, including a softeningin economic growth, monetary policy easing by the European Central Bnak and tightening financial services regulation. This will, inturn, weigh on asset growth, lending and inflows into funds, with the highly fragmented banking sector to be the hardest hit. Despitethis, we believe that Germany's banking and financial services industry will continue to consolidate its position as one of the largestin Europe. We hold a positive long-term view on all four markets we track, with banking asset growth and client loan growth re-accelerating in 2020, insurance premiums continuing to climb steadily higher across our forecast period, the asset managementindustry continuing to record inflows, and the benchmark DAX equity index trading in positive territory thanks to Frankfurt's ongoingappeal to a broad range of industry sectors. Across all four markets we track, we see German operators seeking to positionthemselves as alternatives to London amid the UK's impending exit from the EU, scheduled for the end of October 2019.
