Will the increase in business confidence be enough for the banking sector?

A number of reports today suggest that UK business confidence is higher than at any time over the last two years and many are now starting to look ahead to the future with hope. However, there is still a requirement for the UK banking sector to release excess liquidity into the consumer and business arena to shore up businesses and allow refinancing of certain financial arrangements. But will the increase in confidence be enough to turn the heads of the UK banks?

There is no doubt that the UK banking fraternity has been waiting some time for positive news on the UK business front and the UK consumer sector. There is also no doubt that the ever-growing quantitative easing program has increased liquidity in money markets and ultimately banks would appear to have more finance available than they themselves are making available to the business arena and the UK public.

The fact that the UK stock market also hit a 10 month high on Friday is further positive news which could offer many UK businesses the opportunity to raise additional finance and firm up their balance sheets. However, there is no doubt that the UK banking sector holds the key to the future!
