Investing in Spanish investment banking, as well as equities and commodities, is the biggest challenge facing Spanish equities over the past year.
Investment banking is the most important activity in the Spanish economy, accounting for more than a quarter of the Spanish GDP, and its importance has grown in recent years as the Spanish banking sector has become more efficient.
The Spanish Banking Association has estimated that about 60 per cent of Spanish banking customers are now involved in investment banking.
But analysts have warned that the sector has struggled to keep pace with the growth of global financial institutions.
Robinhood, the largest investment banking and investment advisory firm, says its clients have had to learn new skills to keep up with the fast-moving market.
It has helped clients understand their role in the investment banking industry better.
For example, the firm is helping clients to learn about the types of investments that they can take out to boost their income and improve their overall wealth.
But Robinhood’s investment banking analyst says Spanish investment bank capital is still very low compared to other emerging markets.
The lack of capital in Spanish equity markets has been a major challenge for Spanish equestrians.
Investors have had a tough time finding funding in recent months, due to the political and economic uncertainty in Spain.
The recent sell-off of the country’s sovereign debt, as a result of which Spanish equitegs lost their access to the European Central Bank, has also added to the challenges for investors.
Investing in Spain has become even more difficult since Spanish banks became more efficient in 2016.
Robinshood says the sector is working hard to improve its capital position, and has started to diversify into emerging markets such as India and China.
