This talk was given at TISA‘s Annual National Conference.
Today I’m going to try & walk the walk as well as talk the talk. To be successful, you need to focus on what it is your customers want and how do they want it.
What will separate the winners from the losers in the banking sector, is the ability to recognize what it is that customers want and delivering it.
Likewise, this session will be driven by you. I will do my best to tackle the questions you want answered. So we’ll have a look at what’s going on, why is it happening, how far have we come, where are we heading and what can we do about it?
As well as deliver it in the way you want it – the presentation will be kept short..

Firstly, the European Central Bank will be more flexible in its efforts to keep Greece in the Eurozone. Secondly, there are fewer roadblocks in the ECB’s way for announcing further QE. Policy is diverging. While the US contemplates tightening, Europe is exploring the opposite. Resulting currency moves could provide a welcomed boost to European exporters.
Bad news for Europe, good news for investors

From a dog to a darling, Japanese stocks have finally found favour. After returning 52% for investors last year, there are still 5 reasons this market has further to go, with opportunities most have missed. There is the potential for a catch up within the stock market, mispricing, earning growth, restructuring and increased buying. Sectors to benefit from reflation and growing domestic demand within a still unloved part of the market may profit.
