Global Trade and GDP Growth Drive Transaction Banking Index to Record Level, According to Treasury Strategies

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - Treasury Strategies announced today the release of its new Transaction Banking Index (TBI), which is designed to track the size and stability of the transaction banking market, driven by Treasury Management, Global Trade Services and Securities Processing revenues. It is the most comprehensive database of transaction banking revenues in the world, accounting for over 20% of the Top 1000 World Banks assets.

For the 3rd quarter of 2010, the TBI rose to 107, a 3% year-over-year improvement. This improvement was driven by the rise in global industrial production and continued recovery of global markets. Treasury Strategies expects transaction banking revenues to outpace GDP growth as global trade and production continue to recover from post-crisis levels.

According to Dave Robertson, leader of Treasury Strategies' Financial Services practice, "The visibility of Transaction Banking has increased in the wake of the financial crisis. Our tracking of this index has shown that Transaction Banking revenues exhibit low volatility and are growing alongside trade, GDP and the development of global financial markets."

The Transaction Banking Index (TBI) is comprised of publicly available financial information, commencing in 2008 as this represents a sufficient mass of consistent revenue reporting for transaction banking revenues. Treasury Strategies has been monitoring transaction bank revenues since launching "The Street View of Treasury and Investment Services" in 2006. A Treasury Strategies service mark is pending.
