Bankers here more anxious: PwC-linked survey

Published on Apr 29, 2014 1:28 PM

SINGAPORE - Banking professionals here are much more anxious about banks' outlooks this year compared to two years ago, according to an industry survey sponsored by accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Singapore bucked trends to score 3.25 out of a five-point index this year (2014), a marked rise from 2.37 in 2012.

The result ranks Singapore the third-most anxious country, after Malaysia and Turkey.

This comes even as the biennial Banking Banana Skins survey done by the non-profit London-based Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation (CSFI) marked the first global decline in anxiety levels in seven years.
