Global Investment Banks


In addition to the credit drivers considered in our bank rating methodology, global systemically important banks with significant capital markets activities (the global investment banks, or “GIBs”) have several business-model characteristics that can pose unique or pronounced risks to their creditors. These include: (1) exposure to significant earnings volatility and tail risks, (2) the need for reliable and robust non-capital-markets earnings and capital cushions to protect against unexpected losses, (3) greater absolute and relative reliance on wholesale funding, and (4) a confidence-sensitive customer base. In addition, regulatory investigations and litigation relating to legacy issues present ongoing, material risks to some of these firms.
