Fed Tapering


Federal Boost for Regional Banks

Better-than-expected economic growth in the US during the first half of 2013, has led to speculation that the US Federal Reserve will begin taper its bond-buying program from the current pace of $85 billion[1] a month to about $70[2] billion a month by the end of 2013.Markets have already reacted to tapering speculation, with 10-year note yields rising 120 basis points[3] from June through August 2013. Long-term interest rates, which have maintained record lows during the Fed’s bond buying, could rise significantly should the tapering actually take effect. Though detrimental to parts of the economy, the expected rise in lending rates could boost the net interest income and margins of the country’s smaller regional banks, which tend to be more heavily funded by core deposits and carry a large proportion of short-term loans on their books.
