Some Of The 'Most Systemically Important Banks' In The World Are Tumbling

Since the Federal Reserve hiked rates, "big" US banks have dramatically underperformed "small" US banks, continuing a trend that has been going on since February...

But it's broader than that this "big" bank blow-up is global.

The stock prices of 16 of the most 'Systemically Important Financial Institutions' (SIFIs) in the world are now in bear market territory (down by 20% or more from their recent highs in dollar terms); and as the Financial Times reports, this has caused Ian Hartnett, chief investment strategist at London-based Absolute Strategy Research, to issue his first "Black Swan" alert since 2009.

Of the 39 SIFIs, these are the 16 in bear market territory: Deutsche Bank, Nordea, ICBC, UniCredit, Crédit Agricole, ING, Santander, Société Générale, BNP Paribas, UBS, Agricultural Bank of China, AXA, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Bank of China, Credit Suisse and Prudential Financial.

At some point, says Hartnett, central bankers will have to respond to bearish signals from almost half the global SIFIs, rather than continuing to tighten monetary policy:

“The clue is in the name,” he said.

“If these banks are supposed to be systemically important then policymakers ought to be watching them to see what is happening.”

"The synchronised dips were a sign of global financial stress."

At the same time the credit risk of some of the largest banks in the world has risen significantly...

And the TBTF US Banks have started to tumble...

But SIFIs have globally underperformed the markets...

As The Financial Times goes on to note, what many of the harder-hit Sifi banks have in common, said Mr Harnett, was a heavy dependence on US-dollar funding, putting them at risk of a squeeze if US rates continue to rise and the dollar continues to strengthen. Banks in Canada, Australia and Sweden, in particular, came through the last crisis in relatively good shape, thanks largely to their exposures to China and a strong commodities market. But in the years since then, the banks had overextended, he said, trying to support rapid asset growth with wholesale funding, rather than traditional deposits.

Finally, Hartnett noted bullish remarks from Jamie Dimon on CNBC last week, when the JPMorgan chief celebrated strong consumer and business sentiment and said he could find no “real potholes” in the outlook.

“The good news does not last for ever,” he said. “Those kind of comments are usually just before things start heading down.”

Sooner or later, Powell is gonna get the tap on the shoulder from his real bosses and judging by the collapse of many of the SIFIs, it's soon.

What is the Solution?

In addition to the silver redemption cards and certificates offered at the G47 Marketplace, is a first-in-kind sovereign hallmarked silver solution to provide another complementary digital currency system for those seeking wealth transference and preservation solutions alternative to fiat currencies, and/or to hedge against any related economic downturn.

Contrary to the marketplace buzz over the more than 400 recent "Initial Coin Offerings", this proposed digital “coin” is NOT a coin at all, but rather, a secure peer-to-peer transparent accountancy system (developed on next-gen Fintech via holistic protocol) backed 100% by physical sovereign, minted, hallmarked silver coins (initially the America Silver Eagles) domiciled and deposited in the International Silver Dollar Association (ISDA) designated vault.
