Banking Banana Skins 2015
This survey, now in its 14th year, has become a widely followed indicator of the health of the banking sector for bankers, regulators and analysts in dozens of countries around the world.
The idea is to find out where people think the risks to banks lie in these testing times, and rank them according to their likely impact. The questionnaire has three parts. In the first we ask you to say in your own words where you currently see the greatest dangers. In the second we ask you to score a list of topical risks. In the third we ask you how well prepared you think banks are to handle the risks you have identified.
Responding to the survey takes about 15 minutes. Although we ask you to identify yourself, replies are confidential, and you will not be named in the report unless you tick the box at the top. If you would like to discuss the survey, please contact Harry Atkinson.
The CSFI's 120 reports provide a unique insight into over two decades of thinking about the health of UK and international financial services.
