Annual Bank Executive Business Outlook Survey Report
For bankers, 2018 was a turning point. Bankers noted a number of factors—weaker growth in loan demand, higher funding costs, more competition for deposits—that underscored a much tougher environment for the industry.
Highlights from other parts of the survey include:
- Loan Demand. What a change from a year ago. Last year a whopping 64% of respondents predicted an improvement in loan demand for 2018. This year only 39% expected to see an improvement in the indicator over the next 12 months.
- Deposit Competition. Expectations for deposit competition remained relatively stable—at high levels—for the past year.
- Funding Costs. At the end of 2018, 88% of respondents expected funding costs to rise, down slightly from recent quarters, but in line with predictions from the beginning of the year.
- Access to Capital. After a drop in the first quarter, expectations regarding access to capital remained steady throughout 2018.
