1:11 am
matt: they have put aside $6.2 billion right now for all of their legal issues, so this is $1 billion more than they budgeted for, and they have still got things to look forward to on the horizon. they have been able to bring the fine in under some estimates. banks have a couple of coming out and saying, 9 billion dollars, kbw said $9 billion would be the upper threshold for pain. deutsche bank is going to need to raise $16 billion in capital, not even counting this fine, so it depends on how you look at it. than u.s. banks have had to pay relative to the size of their loan book. bank of america had a loan book four times the size of deutsche bank, but only had to pay $16 billion, so less than twice as much. manus: i love the way we both

1:13 am
back on the fragility's in the fragilitiesor -- in the banking sector. know, this one particular bank is a very large bank, but given the diversity of the german banking sector, it is certainly not the only bank that is available to provide a credit. questionse got many when i have been talking to investors about the german banking sector. this is clearly one of the main banking stories. if this move towards resolution, i'm confident i will have less questions about the german going, banking sector forward and perhaps more questions about the political outlook, about why the german economy, which has a little debt is not growing faster than it is, what constraints there are, because these things -- manus: what is the biggest constraint? i look at the italian story from a market perspective and i say
1:14 am
this is moving through the eye of a big storm. what is moving germany back? everyone is clamoring for fiscal latitude around europe. do you see that? this is the inflation at dictation, by the way, the five-year for the whole of europe. in 2017 atgermany all, driving miss five-year five-year further and higher -- this five-year five-year further and higher? christian: i guess for the first time in a very long time, be listed chance that angela merkel will not win the election, but it remains the case. manus: christian, christian there with the polls. christian: any comment on politics, we should not start with current polling. it is going to change. it is a few months away and there is the chance that merkel will not win. the most likely
1:15 am
alternative would be some kind of left-wing coalition and that may lead to a little bit of a fiscal easing in germany and perhaps more importantly, let's german strictness on the enforcement of the eurozone fiscal rules, perhaps opening us to european investment programs, so that could be the fiscal tailwind that people have been looking for, if she is a poor's reelected than mr. schwab remains the finance minister. manus: how worried are the clients that you speak to behind closed doors? now that we are seeing trump, seeing cameron don, seeing rising up ofg the marine le pen, are they worried merkel could go and the ramifications of that? christian: anything is possible and everybody is much more open to discussing the alternatives than they were previously. i mean, the merkel story came before brexit and trump really
1:16 am
became evident. the refugee crisis, her she is above 50% in most popularity ratings, which in the g7 still makes her the most popular leader, but of course, a lot less than she was before the refugee crisis. the story has been around for sometime. people have been assessing what it would mean and there has been ups and downsides to her. she is a most experienced leader in europe. we had major challenges with exit, the refugee crisis, euros on reforms coming up, and you need somebody who can commit the biggest economy to resolving these issues, and a new guy or woman may not be able to do this. the upside could be that some of the restrictions that germany theput around resolving crisis with fiscal stimulus perhaps, with a european deposit insurance scheme for the banking sector, debt neutralization,
1:17 am
support for the ecb, some of these rejections could be lifted if there is something else there and things move forward more quickly. manus: absolutely, those could be quite prophetic pieces of changes. let us get yousef up there for your highlight of the day ahead. it is not one, the christmas shopping. consumer confidence to asia. theinutes later, it is french gdp reading and at 9:00 a.m. london time, annual news conference. hunger in, get the popcorn. in, get the popcorn. it is a long one. the final meeting of u.k. gdp and the london stock exchange and the u.s. bond market close early, ahead of the christmas break. coming up on daybreak, the country government ready to -- monte paschi's plan fails. from the land with the latest. saudi shakeup. and historic budget prevented as

1:23 am
a nationalization of the world oldest bank could also see other lenders seeking lifelines. joining us to discuss the story financeloomberg managing editor. christian schulz is with me in the studio. thank you for joining us. how did we get here, alicia? and how did it take so long? >> it has been a slow bar. what we have seen over the years of economic contraction accompanied by what you would expect, which is an increase in the stock and the banks not of theg rid stock. the model is not been profitable, and under these various squeezes, the banks have found themselves in a position in which they have up and able to find private money, private investors who are willing to take a leap of faith and back their turnaround at this juncture, even if monte paschi would have removed most of the bad debt from its box, or a
1:24 am
large chunk of it, investors are not to that would be sufficient to maintain a viable business model in the aftermath, and this is what we are seeing. it has been very slow over many years. manus: i suppose the question we have to ask ourselves and the great deal we made of this is the bail in. this is going to be an interesting time in terms of where they are built in. i'm going to interrupt both of us here. credit suisse has reached a settlement, and this is breaking news coming in across the bloomberg terminal. credit suisse has reached a settlement with the department of justice on retail mortgage-backed securities. credit suisse will pay consumer relief of 2.8 the end-all are, so this is -- 2.8 billion dollars. we had the news flow that deutsche bank had reached their settlement of $7.2 billion. that was split between reparations to consumers and to the department of justice. chargesuisse was a cap
1:25 am
of some $2 billion. this will come in their fourth-quarter numbers. that will come out and we will get those in january. this was his absolute objective, to shake up the bank, cut costs, get litigation out of the way. this is the vanguard at deutsche bank. consumer relief, two point $8 billion. that is the latest on the department of justice. that we bring it back to you and the monte dei paschi. if we take this at face value, credit suisse resolving, deutsche bank resolving. we are moving forward at an exceptional cost. quite an impressive night for news for european banks as you point out. paschi, which symbolizes the difficulties that
1:26 am
italian banks are going through. i think for the big legal cases, it clearly clears the deck in pledgedms, and the ceo removing litigation uncertainty is one of the key focuses. i think, once we look more closely at the numbers that are involved, the transparency going forward will be positively received by the investors. with the italian banks, that is different. they are injuring a very uncertain phase and will be essentially controlled by the government, and what we don't know is the type of restructuring the government has in mind for these institutions that are clearly not deemed to be viable by investors. will there be more consolidation, will they take an aggressive start on the costs, for example? these are questions we don't have the answer to. for the italian lenders, the pain ahead could be a little bit longer. manus: great work by you on the team. more to come.

1:34 am
citizens and investors that it can -- the government said it had reduced its spending by 16% this year. it never the budget deficit more than expected. willorecasted shortfall drop again next year, revenues will improve, and it may be will even turn a budget surplus as early as 2019, according to people with knowledge of the metal. is that an optimistic scenario? saudi's topsome of officials had to say about the budget. at the same time, we built issue locally and will issueally -- locally and internationally. i cannot give you the details. want -- we are comfortable with our cash flow. the threely begin,
1:35 am
scenarios are conservatives when it comes to oil prices, so we sources, the multiple and one is coming internally from our industry of energy, aramco, and we have used the international energy prices. we have used imf production. we have used the top analyst average and complained them to calculate most of the scenarios. -- combined them to calculate most of the scenarios. it is generally conservative. >> 2017, i cannot specify the date, but it will not be late in 2017. as we do it soon enough. isthe 200 billion real directly toward companies, saudi , whonies, sdi companies want to expand their current business. is stillristian schulz with us. saudi comedic asian in saudiive, isn't it --
1:36 am
communication in overdrive, isn't it? they have scheduled this off 50 $50 oil. what is your best case scenario in terms of looking at the oil market? christian: jacopo oil price hasn moving up and down quite a bit this year. our experts are expecting the oil price to sort of generally rise as demand and supply globally come into a bit more of a balance, but there is so many on the demandnd side that i think you have to be cautious. we do expect the oil price to be roughly stable, slightly higher going forward, and in that sense, it looks like this is a relatively conservative, you know, baseline for that budget, which, i guess, is good news. manus: the other thing i was trying to think, i was watching the saudi news as it came through, and this came to mind. this is the relationship, the
1:37 am
trading relationship between saudi arabia and the u.s. suppose,look into, i the belly of who the trading relationships are. germany number six, italy #, france number eight. france has potential consequences in europe. i think saudi, of course, is one of the biggest economies out there in the middle east, among opec countries, and opec countries are important clients, customers, for luxury goods, for instance, or for weapons, as we know as well, so for certain industries, these are very important export markets, from a german perspective, you know, headline making quite often. but i think more generally, emerging markets, and if you include these countries in that category, they
1:38 am
were for a long time, if you like, cash cow exporters. that is where the investment went, and that is where the driving investment at home as well and over recent years, with china slowing down, that has sort of become almost the opposite story. it is the risk factor. the more exposed you were as an industrialized economy to emerging markets, the more skeptical emerging markets were looking at you. emerging markets are dealing with the issues, dealing with of problem, and coming out of the worst, at least, and it helps if commodity prices are coming up. that is one of the factors we are watching for 2017, how emerging markets plays out, and which of the industrializing economies are most exposed. some are top of the list there. manus: they have a lot of risk, christian. we have a little bit more to get
1:39 am
through with you. that is turn our attention to russia and the president vladimir putin hold his annual and of your press conference. he is expected to comment on and of youryear -- press conference. they are expecting a marathon session. moing more -- henry joins us from moscow. do you think anybody might ask him if russia influenced the united states election outcomes? well, i mean, it is hard to know whether anyone will put that question, but certainly i agree that trump is likely to be the main issue. it has been a game changer, the election of donald trump for russia. there are a lot of hopes in theyw rushing on that and hope that this will transform their relationship with the u.s. and the west more broadly, so
1:40 am
definitely, this will be one of the main focuses. manus: and what can we expect for 2017 for russia? i mean, it must you like you have the article on -- the erdogan/putin -- yet you have a rebuttal in many ways in terms of europe's position with built-in. what can we expect? >> i think, looking at it from moscow's point of view, their main hope is that they will see some easing or even listing of sanctions -- lifting of sanctions targeting the energy sector and the banking sector, so this is really what they are looking to happen. other issues,s of syria is an important one. we'll definitely see some sort of push together with turkey and iran and maybe other powers to peace agreement
1:41 am
in syria, one which would cement in power putin's ally, bashar assad. manus: we are 18 months away from the next presidential election in russia. i'm going to look for putin's reelection with the longest recession in two decades. there has been a recovery in the price of oil. his personal ratings are usually quite resilient. where do we stand 18 months out? confirmedin has not he will run, but he is widely expected to. been three years of falling incomes. russians have suffered from this recession, however he is expected to coast to reelection. interestingly enough, there is a possible challenge from his most vocal opposition, which is a navani.alled alexey
1:42 am
the kremlin is completely confident in the outcome. anus: as you say, there is great deal that can happen between now and 18 months. newss see what the day's unfolds from moscow. christian schulz is still with us. the great thawing of relations with putin, and yet, i was in front of david cameron last week the man u used to run the cia, and they were saying sanctions worked, sanctions do work. if i look at the global landscape right now, is there is thawing in the relations with putin? christian: they have signaled that he perhaps would have better relations with russia that obama had, so that is clearly an opportunity there, whether it will really materialize, we will have to see. guess,pe, with brexit, i
1:43 am
the british government has been one of the driving forces, i guess, behind the sanctions, so that we can set position, i guess, but we see at the last summit that the sanctions were extended or proposed to be extended. we have also seen they have moved towards that association agreement with ukraine which was not a threat, but certainly something that the russian government would see critical, that that is moving forward despite the dutch referendum rejecting it, so those were two, if you like, defeats for the pro-russian position in europe. next year is going to be hugely interesting for russia as well. what happens in europe during the dutch elections, the french elections, the german elections, in germany in particular, the centerleft is more russia -leaning or more russia-friendly . if they were to run the next government, that could be positive. manus: a great deal for change.
1:44 am
the anti-trump tweet, anyone have your bloomberg on you? amaze howeases to global politics is presented. let us have a look. this is a bite. of course, the potential escalation, we have putin saying we need more nuclear arms and trump talking about, you know, the need for building up the nuclear position in the united states of america. i think his press team tried to walk back on that from the context of the trade. let us have a look at that sweet. that is -- that tweet. the propensity for conflict. this is what trump had to say yesterday. that is rather disconcerting. it is so many moving pieces from an economic point of view. central banks need to be there fair and square, don't you think? christian: china, russia, the u.s., as a whole, starting to threaten each other in order to
1:45 am
cut some deals where they then have better bargaining chips on their side. that, you know, as long as it is just bargaining chips and deals everyone tries to get, that is risk but you know, the rises that something goes wrong, and that we will see more proxy conflicts somewhere as we do. geopolitical risks are clearly on the rise again in various parts of the world. again, something for 2017 that you have to keep in mind. central banks can only help us so much. what they are providing help to , or with banking crisis political situations here or there. it cannot change structure problems. manus: thank you so much, christians old. -- christian schulz. credit suisse, $5.3 billion they will pay to the department of
1:46 am
justice in regards to their mortgage. billion and they will pay $2.48 billion in a civil penalty. $2.8 billion in the form of consumer relief. this is the department of justice. let us get to our finance reporter. he joins us on the phone. $5.3 billion, where does that fit into what, perhaps, we had expected might be the worst case scenario? first of all, the proportion of the consumer relief is relatively high, so that is something. the bank will be able to pay over a longer period of time. provision thatng credit suisse has set aside for its outstanding legal matters, which is about 2 billion swiss francs. jan-hernik: we will have a
1:47 am
pretext charge in addition to those. we cannot exclude at this stage that there might be some action, but overall, what analysts said earlier, that this might cover the fine. it could have been worse. manus: it could have been worse, but if we look at the news flow over the past 24 hours, this is tollmably worse as a heavy , but going into the close of bigyear, it closes off one portion of litigation, so to that end, it can be seen as a slight catharsis. jan-hernik: yes, exactly. as you pointed out, it clears a major legal hurdle for the bank and with all of those numbers that have been floating around
1:48 am
over the past two months with deutsche bank, the opening bid, there was numbers floating around, 5 billion to 7 billion, you can say that this is now clearing a majorly hurdle, and credit suisse and tidjane thiam can continue overall what the ,ank so even cost-cutting modes i guess he is pleased that this is out of the way now. the bank announced various costs having measures since he has taken over. they have accelerated the program. they are cutting in switzerland and the investment bank and building a more resilient towards wealth management. overall, you can say that it is good that this uncertainty is out of the way, something that investors don't really like. manus: thank you so much. if you are just waking up and
1:49 am
tuning in this morning, you are tuning into a trifecta of banking stories that are going to drive some relief for the people running those banks. be askinge paschi may for state aid. deutsche bank has settled for a seven point $2 billion at the department of justice for mortgage-backed securities. they had estimated as much as $14 billion. tidjane thiam closes up a deal with a fine for mortgage-backed securities. reparation will be made in the form of $2 billion from, additional pretax charge, in this quarter. $5.3 billion, as we just heard from the reporter. civilllion in the penalty. in relief.n undoubtedly, it is banking that is going to dominate the market agenda on the final trading day. the christmas period. coming up on daybreak, what have we got for you? we have got a little bit of britain, brexit, what else?

50 negotiations for two years ahead of us, presumably in 2019 will have to have a decision as that actually looks like. in the long run, i probably agree, hard brexit is perfectly possible because britain, politically, need to deliver this immigration control, which is inconsistent with staying in the single market of the e.u., -- so in the long run, it would have to be some exit from that single market, but i doubt though that by 2019, you can really risk, before the elections in the u k in 2020, -- u.k. in 2020, to do brexit immediately. two little time to really come to grips with all of the details of the regulations and so on, i think britain will go for a transition deal that will officially deliver exit from the e.u. and perhaps some other things such as exiting the policy fisheries, maybe getting

, but not exiting the single market immediately, and i think that is the crucial part it's for me, something along the lines of a norway style area from 2019 for a transition period seems more likely than immediate hard brexit. confidence isr under pressure, the lowest since july 2013. the reality is beginning to bite, isn't it? in terms of going shopping? there you go. we are worried. the economists have been incredibly resilient. i would not bet too much against the u.k. consumer continuing to support the economy, yet the going is getting harder. the main one is now that -- is rising. it is not so much the uncertainty but the inflation rising, which is going to drive

countries and you can find all of the stories that you need for your trading day on bloomberg. this is bloomberg. you're watching and waking up this friday morning. santa claus doesn't seem to have a rally. how is the market flooring you just before christmas? >> well, if you are in new zealand or jakarta perhaps santa has visited you today manus . up for a sixth consecutive session that, market. the australian rally that we had been seeing faltered today. that weighed on a lot of the mining players. the australian share markets are closing a shortened day's trade down 1/3 of 1% ahead of the four-day christmas break. correction territory that hang seng is deepening today. property stocks lifted on hang seng index down for a 10th consecutive day. the hang seng getting very close to that 200-day moving

that lawsuit filed in a federal court in new york. quite an unprecedented move for the bank to be sued by the u.s. barclays has given their repass to in this morning. ack in the period of 2005 to 2007, the claim is in regards to mail and wire fraud. barclays rejects the claims made in the complaint. they said the complaint seeks unspecified monetary penalties. barclays will vigorously defend the complaint. this is a very initial repass back from barclays in regards to that lawsuit going back to the period of 2005-2007. just before the financial crisis.
2:09 am
so in terms of other breaking news that we have, let me just see, we have banca monte dei paschi de siena, breaking news. let me just get this for you. paschi shares and bonds are suspended from trading as of today. we are waiting to hear what the next step is for banca monte dei paschi as we understand they failed to raise the critical level which was 5 billion euros in terms of additional capital. we understand that they are readying themselves to ask for a bailout from the government. what size that bathe bailout is, we are very unsure of at hat stage. 5% of italian retail investors have gone bank bond. those that do are not that poor.
2:10 am
the equities, the bonds will be suspended from trading as of today. let's re-refocus back to one of our major stories. deutsche bank says it has reached a $7.2 billion agreement. of ends years investigation. matt miller joins us now from berlin. matt thanks for joining me. look, first up, the money. let's talk about the money and how is it going to be paid for? matt: so it is very similar to the way credit suisse settled with the justice department as well. what deutsche bank and credit suisse both are going to do is pay a large chunk of money as a civil penalty, in the case of deutsche bank, that is $3.1 billion of the $7.2 billion total and then the reminder deutsche bonk , $4.1 billion
2:11 am
is going to go to relief for consumers and relief for communities that were affected by the mortgage crisis. so for example, one possible way would be a modified loan for somebody who is under water. so that's interesting that we see that both with deutsche bank and credit suisse. that means that they won't have to take as much of a hit. deutsche bank is taking a 1.2 billion euro charge to its fourth quarter earnings. they said they may not be profitable for 2016. those numbers don't come out until february. we know there will be a 1.2 billion euro charge for deutsche bank. credit suisse about 2 billion euros. manus: thank you. the very latest on the deutsche bank details. 7.2 billion for deutsche bank and over 5 billion for credit suisse. banca monte dei paschi bonds have been suspended. the latest from the italian
2:12 am
exchanges. et's talk about italy. banca monte dei paschi failed to raise enough funds from investors. our next guest says earlier is month their share sales could be successful if there is a white knight. oining us is the head of we don't have the details in terms of the sides of the government stake. how do you look at this? as the closer of a long battle that finally closed that is good news or do you look at it as disastrous that banca monte dei paschi couldn't find a white knight investor? >> i guess the good news is that finally we are heading
2:13 am
towards a solution. state intervention obviously is not something great overall but in the end, italy is doing now what other countries have done many years ago to sustain their banking system. so i think overall it is good news. clearly we need a lot of details to understand how this situation is going to be dealt with. the decree and the statements minister are talking about bailing out the investors, basically talks about bailing out institutional investors, up to 75% of face value, which i would be very surprised but the details are going to be very important, where is the line between retail investors and professional investors. how are the investors going to
2:14 am
be reimbursed is going to be very complicated i guess. the amount of money that is going to be put in we don't know. clearly it is going to be probably more than 5 billion, i guess. manus: you think that the government is going to have to put in more than 5 billion euros? >> i guess so. the decree talks about 20 billions to sustain the banking sector. clearly there are other -- there are two others in the northern part of the country. that need funds quickly. so i guess the 20 billions are for at least these three interventions. now the other thing that needs to be clarified is the position of the european union. the government said that the intervention has been agreed to with the european union.
2:15 am
we don't know the details yet. as always, when these things happen that are very important, but overall clearly we are going to go towards a solution at least, it has been a negative focus for the italian market for so many months. manus: it has indeed. one of the things of course, that the italian banks have been trying to do is offload their bad loans. when you see bad loans going for state aid or nationalization, it is going to be allowed to use to dress it up in whatever way they would like to dress it up, this is where the market really, really hits down hard in terms of what they are prepared to offer for these bad loans to get them off the books. i've seen this in ireland and this is -- this is the big concern, isn't it? you're trying to get rid of bad loans and bad debt off your books. this is when the market literally will squeeze the
2:16 am
lemon as much as they can. i can't -- i can think of another word but disease not polite to use it at 7:00 a.m.. >> it is probably 50 billion to 60 billion ps. clearly it is a big widespread problem throughout the whole banking system and it is clearly very difficult to deal with in an efficient way. so we -- we said before, we shall see how how this shall be dealt with. the fact that the government is ready to put some money in is good news because clearly it is dissipating fears of worst scenarios like a default of the third biggest bank in italy that would have caused clearly a massive crisis. the problem is going to be difficult. it is going to be dealt in --
2:17 am
throughout 2017, surely, but i would focus today on the fact that clearly the debt of italy is going to increase but this is at the moment not a problem -- use we have a buyer of and this is not unsettling the markets. what was unsettling the markets was clearly a potential banking crisis. in the long end, we might end up with -- well, a number of banks that are more or less equal but they are nationalized. everybody can have his own opinion. clearly it is not -- it is not great news as far as i'm concerned. manus: no. it is not. i think the point about it is we saw once or twice what happens when you let people run on the bank what happens when you let a bank go under channeling a couple of banks in the united states of
2:18 am
america. let's talk about deutsche bank. we understand $7.2 billion settlement with the department of justice. we have credit suisse coming through as well. this this was half of the amount that was put on the table in the opening -- from the department of justice. does it help us move on through the story for deutsche bank? does it help john crier to get this one out of the way? >> i think the settlement is a good thing because it ends uncertainty. the headline number is quite high compared to what i was expecting or the market was expecting probably a bit less than that. as was mentioned before, the details on how this amount will be -- will be channeled the retail -- the
2:19 am
retail people that was affected is -- the effect of the overall payment meter means that the heat is not going to be as hard -- the hit is not going to be as hard in 2017. overall it should be taken positively by the market i guess. manus: thank you so much for joining us this morning. c.e.o. in milan. it has just crossed 7:19 in london. breaking headlines from barclays this morning. the department of justice in the united states in a new ork court yesterday evening, the mortgage-backed security period 2005-2007. barclays rejects the complaints made in the claim and barclays said this is the important line.
2:20 am
this is what they are going to have to deal with this morning. he complaint seeks unspecified monetary payment. barclays will vigorously defend the complaint. sally is standing by. full of christmas cheer i hear. sally: credit suisse agreed to pay $5.28 billion to resolve a u.s. probe into its mortgage-backed u.s. securities business. the bank said it will pay $2.48 billion with the remainder to consumer relief. the obama administration has been pressing to wrap up investigations of wall street firms that helped fuel the 2008 financial crisis. well, the u.s. justice department sued over its sale of mortgage bonds. they said they were deceived about the risk of securities.
2:21 am
barclays said it will vigorously defend the complaints. volkswagen has agreed to service settlement terms with models built after 2009. it is part of a larger accord that will add about $1 billion to what the company agreed to pay regulators consumers and lawyers in the u.s. and canada. six months on from the e.u. referendum, the sighs are pointing to a hard brexit. -- signs are pointing to a hard brexit. alibaba's on demand services unit is close to securing $1.2 billion of funding for its education pangs. it is getting backing from first time investors from

silver lake and china's wealth und. the union unite says the decision follows a revised offer from the airline which will go to its members. and that's your bloomberg business flash. manus ? manus: thank you very much. very happy christmas to juliet. we'll see you on the other side. my next guest, is optimistic about the outlook for trading next year. he is head of european rates and strategy. he joins us now on "daybreak europe." thank you so much for being with us, peter. >> good evening, manus . manus: the left hand side of the butcher scale. on the right hand side of course i have interest rates. ok?
2:23 am
so which is a going to trump which? excuse the pun. is it going to be politics that drives yields higher? >> no. manus: lower, excuse me. >> i think optimism, particularly on the inflation front is going to be something of a q 1 story and then i think we really start getting focused on the geopolitics once -- not only trump being in the start of his tenure but also we have the french election coming up. i see more -- a scope for more optimism first in the early part of the quarter. an energy price and a drive in inflation that we're going to see and i think that is going to get the markets quite excited. i think we're going to have some upward pressure on yields and pressure on yield curves but then i think we're going to realize all right, this is
2:24 am
as good as it was going to get. actually for the eurozone in particular, it is going to be more of a case of look how dysfunctional this thing is. we don't understand the politicians, the main actors who were controlling where the politician goes. also there is a lot of divergeance that i think we're going to see next year in particular. if i refer back to some of the data we had this week, italian wages. disappointing. they are still bottoming out. potentially if we have inflation continuing to prize next year, we could get back into a scenario where in italy, real wages perhaps could start to contract. purchasing power of the italian person could start to fall. whereas in core economies we could actually have some inflation that does turn into higher wages. so i think we're going to see another divergeance in the eurozone and that is generally
2:25 am
a bad thing because there is no real strong political construct for rebalancing the differences. manus: i'm going to play a slightly unfair one on you. i know you're a man who knows the direction of a bond yield or two. basically reflect back to where bond yields were, you know, back in 2013 and that big spike up in yields you had up to nearly 2%. then the next big cyclical move in yields was 2014. it looks like and this is where i want to try and get your opinion. we have had that trajectory ratcheting fire in the yields and bunds. i had that in the other day. that bond yields were going to get up to 75 basis points. perhaps i should sort of you know trade against this flow of movement in the bond market at the moment.
2:26 am
>> if we should see rises higher in bond yields, they would still to me be a buying opportunity. ultimately the bond yield i think is fair value, still should be through the course of next year, somewhere around 25 basis points. it is really, you know, it is a minuscule yield even though we have had headline inflation rising. the reason for it to stay low on a fair value basis and therefore to be where it expect it to trend back towards is because core inflation is still extremely low and we have rising political risks. we have to think in terms of owning bonds and owning other parts of the german curve. at they offer you is not a flight to quality. manus: time has run against us. head of european rates and strategy.
