What they said about CIB in 2Q19: a guide to bank results

Didn’t have time to go through your investment banking rivals’ results announcements? Don’t worry, we’ve done it for you, business by business.

Most of the corporate and investment banking (CIB) earnings commentary from banks this quarter was on their markets businesses, rather than debt and equity capital markets (DCM and ECM).

The latter were mostly a little weaker than the previous year. Pipelines were often seen as more muted heading into the second half of the year, partly for seasonal reasons but also on fewer acquisition-financing opportunities as well as continuing concerns over trade. However, the changing rate environment was seen as potentially spurring new issuance in DCM.
