Normalcy Returns To Banking

By Marc DeCastro

The US Federal Reserve just agreed to raise interest rates slowly over the next 12-18 months as we finally begin to distance ourselves from the financial crisis some 7 years ago. In addition, bank failures in the US have settled to more average numbers and there is virtually no panic on Main Street about bank solvency. And finally, the possibility exists that we may actually see some new bank charters filed, some from non-traditional bank competitors. If there is one thing that bankers like, it is predictability and normalcy, and all indications are that despite the massive transformation within the industry, the outside forces which may have impeded next generation banking are loosening their grip.
