KBRA Releases The Bank Treasury Newsletter Chart Deck


Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases this month’s edition of The Bank Treasury Newsletter Chart Deck.

The Chart Deck starts with a look at the history between the Treasury 2s-10s spread and recessions, noting that past economic cycles have usually been preceded by a peaking in the ratio of bank loans to deposits, which has not happened in this cycle. Other slides in the deck highlight recent trends in balance sheet yields and costs, and how the Fed’s changes in rates have impacted bank net interest margin.

In addition, we highlight how rates on money market funds have started to draw in savings that were otherwise locked in low return bank deposits. The discussion concludes with a look at equity mutual funds and how cash flows from active to index funds has altered the balance between them.
