Moody's downgrade gives edge to safe-haven banks

Major ratings downgrades by Moody's will further divide the world's biggest banks based on their strength and access to cheap customer deposits.

The ratings, released Thursday by Moody's Investors Service, gave a competitive advantage to "safe-haven" banks that fund themselves with stable, low-cost customer deposits, while worsening the outlook for weaker banks that rely more on capital markets for their funding.

Stock and credit markets reacted mildly after Moody's cut the ratings of 15 of the world's biggest banks, as the cuts had been widely anticipated.
The cost of insuring against default for each of the five biggest US investment banks fell on relief that Moody's was not harsher, said Otis Casey, research director at Markit in New York.

The KBW index of US bank stocks rose 1.4 per cent on Friday in New York. European bank shares rose 0.1 per cent. Shares of New York-based Morgan Stanley were up 1.3 per cent after initially jumping more than 3 per cent in reaction to its rating having been cut less than feared.
