2014-03-06 01:45:02 - Diversified Financial Services - Industry Analysis - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The Financial Services (Diversified) Industry consists of a collection of companies that offer a wide variety of products and services. Asset managers and credit card companies are the two largest groups within the industry, but after that, little commonality exists. Banking, commercial lending, insurance, student loan origination, pawn brokerage, tax preparation, and aircraft leasing are just a few of the other businesses. Thus, given such a span of operating models and market segments, it is important not to paint the industry with too narrow an investment brush. For decades, conservative investors flocked to these companies, attracted by their steady revenue and income performances and the protection against volatility and above-average dividend yields that their stocks provided. However, more recently,
poor management decisions (e.g., those involving sub-prime loans, derivatives) that significantly raised operating risk, and the near-total collapse of the global financial system, limited the industry´s investment suitability to those who are more venturesome. Moreover, the U.S. government and overseas regulators have stepped in to play a prominent role, closely examining and controlling day-to-day business administration of certain companies.
