    [$$] China throws its banks a bone

    The surprise lowering of the reserve requirement ratio for China’s banks is less a signal of policy easing and more about shifting funds around the monetary system, in the hope that the benefit to the banks will be passed on. The 100-basis-point cut was announced by the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) on Tuesday, hours after the government said the economy had grown 6.8 per cent in the first quarter. The reserve requirement ratio, a legacy of the years of net capital inflows, represents trillions of renminbi in deposits that banks are required to keep with the central bank.

    China's largest banks feel wind in their sails as profits rebound

    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's top lenders are reporting their best profit growth in three years on better net interest margins, with Beijing's crackdown on shadow financing and high leverage expected to further drive recovery this year. The strong 2017 results suggest that Beijing has been successful in pushing smaller lenders to cut their exposure to riskier financing practices - in turn helping reduce competition for the state-backed behemoths. "The banks that will do well this year are those that have national franchises, "safe" brands, relatively clean balance sheets, competitive products, sticky core deposits and strong credit skills," said John Ott, partner with Bain & Company and a leader with its Greater China financial services practice.
