An Open Letter To My Bank: It’s not me, it’s you.

I think we need to talk….

This one-way relationship isn’t working anymore. Every interaction has become difficult (and costly). There’s no trust, and you’ve betrayed me too many times. Most importantly, we don’t share the same vision for the future…

It’s not me, it’s you.

All the times you promised you’d change…

1980’s market crash: Inflation spiralled out of control and interest rates soared to almost 20%. Program trading, overvaluation, illiquidity and market psychology being the main causes of Black Monday carried out by the banks in 1987.

2008 Financial Crisis: S&P 500 lost approximately 50% of its value between 2007–2009 and unemployment raised to a whopping 10% in October 2009. To top it off, 11 banks received extraordinary government-sponsored bailouts paid for by the US taxpayers...

2020? In 2019, the Federal Reserve has already cut interest rates 3 times. In July of this year, rates were slashed to 2.25%, and recently to an even lower rate of between 1.5% and 1.75% amid early signs of a global slowdown — a clear sign of another major recession is likely approaching.

Let’s be honest…

Banks can’t commit to putting you first when shareholders are in the game. You deserve better than your bank, and banks don’t deserve your trust. Eight major financial crises over the last 40 years (Latin American debt crisis, US Savings and loans crisis, Black Monday, Junk bond crash, Mexican peso crisis, 1997 Asian financial crisis, Dotcom bubble, Global financial crisis) largely due to mismanagement of risk and a complete lack of transparency and oversight.

Thank you, next.

It’s time to settle down with a partner that treats you and your funds the way you deserve to be treated; one that you can actually see yourself building a future with…
