EY Banking Barometer 2023

The "EY Banking Barometer 2023" conducted by Ernst & Young underlines that Swiss banks show resilience despite a turbulent fiscal year 2022 and are now at a turning point: "Due to the turnaround in interest rates, banks expect higher margins in the longer term and are therefore optimistic about the future". According to the 100 banks polled for this study, the war in Ukraine, high energy prices, problems with supply chains, the rise in inflation and the accompanying interest rate hikes have kept them very busy in 2022. In view of the uncertain situation, the focus in 2023 is on cost efficiency, talent management and sustainability.
