Australian banks out of favour – globally!

Australia’s stronger GDP number released last week has reduced expectations that interest rates will be cut again by the RBA.

This did not help the yield-sensitive banking sector, which was subsequently sold off. In fact, banks have been a major cause of the 3% decline in markets during the past two weeks. Much of the problem is coming from overseas investors exiting Australian banks in favour of European and US bank stocks.
