market isng for the wondering if they are going to get going in march. march, june. the market is going to question whether or not they can squeeze three in. wasn't particularly signaling the march on the cards. janet yellen and the feds like everyone else is worried about the uncertainties that donald trump is drumming up. being we have gone from the great dollar traded, the fourth quarter of 2016. no it is the worst start for over 10 years in the dollar. on the speculative conditions swept out of this moniker and do you look through the noise or is the dollar going to become the currency manipulator?
the u.s.e seen administration already becoming a u.s. best currency regulator. enough -- a strong dollar policy is that around years. to make the remarks as we saw on japan am achina on a highly unusual. i think we do have a very different type of talk coming from the trunk administration. dollar, ict to the think what we saw last year was the market getting ahead of itself. getting excited about inflationary plans and what we are seeing is one of those come up. the dollar is in a more neutral position.
the market is fearing protections and isolations and what you can do to growth. whether it will be detrimental to growth. isa: are these conversations similar to conversations under the obama administration but now out in the open? or is the underlying material nature of these conversations different? themission in your notes obama administration was also concerned about the u.s. trade deficit with china and germany and behind the scenes, this is all out in the open. guest: if you go back to that meeting, look at the market after that. he administration had pushed back on the currency. had given a strong signal behind to otherors authorities not to engage in currency wars. japan, japan has not
intervened in the market frequently since 2004. as we say, this is speculation. if these conversations happens that they were behind doors. now it is in the open and that can create volatility in the markets this year. manus: you have made the choice -- point the japanese have not intervened. the chinese are soaring up their currency. you look at dollar-yen and you have a real sense and the market that the jgb market is moving higher, yields are moving higher. can be provoked into more action than we think. >> the bank of japan clearly has a aggressive monetary policy. market. more of the a lot of speculation that they are going to really saturate let's market.
limits to what they can carry on doing. etf as well. their policy is to really pressure that 10 year yield. that is their policy. the location is they will be doing more. there's not get the application they will start intervening in the currency. if donald trump does provoke other authorities such as china, maybe japan. who knows what could be down the road? anna: we have not heard as much as we thought we would between china and the united states. why do you think that is? because he is trying to work out where china is in the mitigation story? he said for years they may deflect the currency. -- they influence their currency. certainly there was a
he would label china a currency manipulator because he said before. he has not done that yet. that is one of the reasons arguably that china is intervening. trump or delayld him labeling them a manipulator. chinese authorities were just a boy from intervening to keep their currency higher. the world market flooded with even more chinese cheap goods. he wants a weaker dollar to rebalance the u.s. trade deficits. anna:.ng china thank you very much. with us here on daybreak. ricky news. -- breaking news. 11 9% versus

cap interest rate risk. as long as the impact is very slow and we see interest rates rise, it is beneficial and i would like to see it. the impact will be through very slowly. we don't expect or predict significant increase interest rates. our plans predict a low rate through 2020. we plan to respond to that, increasing our digital focus and driving ing closer to becoming a fully digital bank. manus: part of the conversation we are having ceos and cfos is about the consolidation story that many are saying is going to get ignited around europe. do you think that will be part of the story for 2017? are you a believer in organic rope or would you look for targets?
patrick: if you look at what we have done, profits of 18%. our organic strategy is clearly working. we are proud of it. our footprint is broad. we don't need an expansion prevent -- footprint to be successful. of our markets are delivering $100 million per head and have room to grow. plenty of space for organic growth. we will keep an eye on what is happening in the markets but primarily in organic strategy. germany and spain where you have moved in. what market shares do you have in these and what are your expectations? how big can a business like yours become? in romania we make 100 million.

the 100 day administration of trump, get your -- give me your concern from 1-10 of trade wars and a slowdown of trade at a global level. how worried are you? guest: very difficult to say at this point in time. why? we have a footprint that is very withg in america area clients and partners and we have a footprint that is very strong on europe. i believe this balance of would probably be neutral to us. i don't see a direct effect. i see a strong dynamic in
america in terms of -- even stronger in asia and india. also factors above that. at this point in time we cannot relate. that is why we are still confident despite all these statements being made right now. the: we take that that notion of america first and the policy statements we have seen from donald trump, is that being reflected in a changing buyer behavior from any customers in the united dates? 40% come from the u.s., have you seen any changes in customer sentiment as a result of that kind of national policy? guest: it is clear there is more tension around the digitalization of production systems to get productivity on a
new generation of plans. we have a lot of customers in silicon valley outsourcing a lot outside. now they might be doing more in america. in this case they will have to build plans. they will have to build capacity which means they will build our software -- they will need our software. we don't see at this point in time any special negative effects. manus: you reflected a couple of times, you referred to asia. where does china feature in terms of collaboration and innovation? to be yourng strongest partners over the next five years? where to the chinese feature in those relationships?
guest: it should be noticed that china has decided to become an innovation country. evidentthis is now very with the adoption of advanced solutions. shipbuilding, electro-mobility. i don't think this wave will slow down. it will accelerate because of the internal needs of the market. china has been clear they want to be a leader in electro-mobility. we are in the middle of those projects so i think that is given to me today that china is going to become not only the factory of the world but they this is anovate and new balance in terms of the
world economy. about new offers to the market. it seems like one of those years where he can't escape it. everyone is asking a french policy. does it matter to you as a whoness person and france wins the next election? you have fears around access to talent? now sd.e are we have a lot of labs around europe and germany, italy, u.k.. i don't see how these will slow down.
access to talent is european wide. concerned with our situation in france right now because our country needs reforms. significant reforms. dependent on much the situation in france per se. revenue that 45% of our is across europe. we have put great clients and france but they are global partners. clearly we need reforms from a business standpoint. this will not slow down access to talent as all in our mind. manus: thank you so much for joining us this morning. .tay with bloomberg anna: it is 7:42 in germany and

monetary policy decision. them to raiseect productions while keeping the key interest rate at a record low. manus: for more on what to expect from today's decision let's head to the bank of england. mark carney has a very fine line to tread today. he is in neutral mode but any surprises under the hat? reporter: absolutely. a very fine and delicate balancing act as always. balancing the fact we have had a stronger growth and inflation recently, a potential risk down the line. no change expected to the key interest rate. what's we might see our new forecasts and an update for growth and inflation.
1.4 percent growth, 2.7% inflation for 2017. expecting an upgrade to those numbers. give the thing that mark carney emphasized in a november was a neutral stance. the next move in the bank of england could be either up or down and that is what we will be waiting to hear about at the meeting today and the press conference. markets are pricing and more likely to a rate hike than a cuts. that question, which direction with the bank of england moving next. markets falling on one side rather than the other. guest: markets take into account -- account the economic fundamentals in the u.k. since the meeting of november. we have seen solid growth, a pickup in inflation. sterling has stabilized but nonetheless the economic fundamentals have picked up. the markets have probably been
listening to mark carney himself who did say the bank of england would be less tolerant of above target inflation. they are in fact pricing in a greater probability of a rate -- ratherer than a than a cuts cut and a 50% chance this year. how will you manage those expectations? hawkish toneke a or in the risk to the outlook from brexit? certainly something he brought up before and he is likely to bring it up again. some say brexit is the only thing standing between a rate rise. bringing you that decision when it happens at 12:00 followed by the bank of england governor mark carney holding his news conference at 12:30. get the strategy
group at citigroup, the world's biggest currency trader. here to talk about the u.k., europe, and later about the u.s.. great to catch you as you fly through london. let's start the conversation about the u.k.. move ishink the next higher and when does it come? stephen: it is true that brexit is the only thing standing in the way of a hike but it is a pretty big elephant. it will be there for quite a while. retrospect may have been a necessary ease. i think they will emphasize don't extrapolate anything we do here. let's start with a simple
points. do you think he will be neutral with no hint of a hawkish stone? stephen: even if he thinks he might be hiking over the next six or mine months -- nine months. whyou will not do it today, tease the market? i do think the fact that growth is better and inflation is higher than they thought, with respect to commencing on policy i think let's of the market draw modest conclusions as opposed to guiding the markets. when does inflation you need to look to turn into inflation you need to react to? there's this argument that you look through that but at some point you start to talk about secondary inflation and working it's way more into the economy. stephen: that's one of the
reasons central banks pay so much attention to wages. if you get an increase in prices from a weak sterling or from oil and doesn't show up in wages yards that it shows up as an inflationary spiral is persistent that inflation is pretty low. that, thence for history of the last 30 years tells us the path through is not as strong as we thought it was. wait and see whether there is a pass-through into the wage cycle. manus: we have to get some rate levels on sterling. did theresa may get the market to price brexit for a hard brexit at 120, 125? stephen: i think 120 is about right. -- 1.20. sterling is really cheap and i
idea that they lower it for a an extended appeared of time --. of time. it would get investors buying u.k. assets. it could go lower and obviously we backed away from the most higher of brexit risks but i think that we are not a mile away from where we are going to be at the end of the process. my guess is five years from now sterling will be higher, not lower. anna: the euro versus the sterling? there is risk on the calendar, isn't there? is that overdone in the minds of market players? stephen: it is there because it exists. begetter thee dutch elections, the french
elections, the german elections with no surprise. the italian election seems to be the one that has the most risk. it is weighing on the euro. very weekly, where is the firesale? we are using a firesale? stephen: when you translate the pound price into foreign currency, investors are looking at cheaper u.s. assets and real estate people that are very interested in what is happening in the u.k.. everybody is looking to do like for like with u.k. against local firms. the cheaper it gets hard the harder it is to keep it down there. anna: thank you very much. stay with bloomberg. earnings from shell at the top of the hour. we will be speaking to the company's ceo. his first television interview of the day on the european market open share. manus: also talking to the cfo of deutsche bank and those are the big blockbuster earnings as

at the start. you are the gold standard of european real estate space. what i want to know from you is what are we going to see from you in terms of development completions for this year, take me forward. i can read the press release. give me your vision for 2017 and beyond. we have to take the longer-term view. we are delivering a new shopping forer in poland and we do extensions and innovations, very profitable on the basis of standing shopping centers, the risk, high returns. anna: what about u.k. assets question mark we were talking to stephen engle and a little earlier from citigroup. he is still listening, coming back on a minute. he was talking about a fire sale in u.k. assets. doesn't look that way to you when you look at u.k. real estate? guest: there is a distinction, there is a interest in looking at everything.
financial markets are much more liquid and they are signaling their perspective on what pricing is likely to look like. there is still a significant demand from sovereign wealth funds in particular. large investments and stable different view on interest rates and looking for a stable home to park their cash. of middlesee lots eastern investors and other players coming into the u.k. market? guest: we have seen that. one of the big office buildings here is being sold by british land. they are expecting to find demand. there is [inaudible] the matter what happens with brexit. there will be continued demand for real estate assets in london. we do not specialize in offices in london so we do retail. manus: only look at your business and the geographic complexion of your business, ing gave us the banking side. i think reasonably optimistic.
give me the european perspective from where you said. everyone is telling us there is recovery. the numbers and soft data say so. does that translate to your view of europe and your optimism? times we areh many not a proxy for the macro but what we see is positive. coming from a low base, we're looking at growth that 1.8% across europe but highly anything to write home about. there is more positive trend we're seeing at the strong pockets like spain. we are seeing it in the nordics. there is patch year places as you mentioned. that is eastern europe is a little softer. anna: i have written here in terms ofspain, expansion plans. where do you see expansion coming from? guest: across all the countries in which we are currently present. we have to look through -- building a shopping center can take between five and 15 years
so it takes with a long-term view. we look at individual opportunities and we will decide whether or not to move forward based on the risk-adjusted returns. manus: politics is something that every ceo and cfo has to consider. there is some risk in front. you have big exposure. politics is heating up. who it matter to you exceeds the power in france this year? guest: there is two elements, one is the more broader political implication of the wind by particular persons to the larger european picture and the other is what we can control. , peopleshopping centers need to be light groceries and they still need to seek entertainment. there is a distinction. we cannot influence what happens in the political level. we have to deal with whatever comes our way in the best thing we can do is focus on the business. we're seeing a lot of the
politics play out in foreign exchange markets. to a large extent you are in the euro but although -- also in other currencies. do you see volatility on that side of your business, they gives you something to manage with all the politics at the four. guest: we try to be currency neutral. except for sweden. you try to match assets to liabilities and cash flows. that basically covers it so we minimize the currency and try to minimize the currency impact. it is small and relative. manus: great to get your take on how the world looks at the moment on the set of numbers. keep of the gold standard according to the analysts. anna: later today, the incoming cio joining us to discuss thursday and the big week of central-bank decisions. we will also give his outlook --
largest bank. ratio rose to 11.9%. bonuseshas been cutting jobs. later in the day we will be the bank with the ceo. the company is discussing a 29% premium to meet the closing price. it would be financed by [inaudible] facebook's fourth-quarter revenue beat estimates driven by advertisers continued mobile push.
monthly active users on its social network increased 17% from a year earlier to 1.8 6 billion people. mobile ad revenue made up 84% of the companies total ad sales. that is your bloomberg business flash. anna, manus. anna: thank you. the federal reserve is in a wait mode while they try to figure out what trumps policies mean for the economy. left the rate unchanged. manus: while they provided little direction on when they would ask to raise the rate, sentiment has risen and inflation will rise to the 2% target even with gradual adjustments in interest rates. is back on form. here you go, the dollar, job on theawboning is the name of game. respond to that?
of talking down the currency if you are doing the big fiscal policy initiative, i think will be very unsuccessful. capital flows will follow incentives and u.s. rates will be higher. money would go to the u.s. so it would be hard to talk down the dollar unless you are willing to subsume your inflation targets. it can get nominal rates down but if you do fiscal policy at the end of the business cycle, your exchange rate will go up. they are talking the dollar down but on the other hand policy announcement as we know them so far have been dollar positive. have the fiscal structure we expected where if hillary
were to be elected. the market will say that kind of noes sense that there is trust and the dollar is expensive, there is some expectations built in. the dollar should fall but if you are doing some that looks like the house plan or the trump plan where there is keynesian stimulus and incentives are capital to move to the u.s., the u.s. exchange rate is good to go up unless you have a supply-side miracle. they may believe that is going to happen but history tells us that the -- it will not happen to the extent is needed down their side. --needed on their side. manus: let's say they get some of the tax changes. what is the biggest offer in terms of dollar? it is the currencies we have on the screen. the ecb not doing much of anything, boj will not do much of anything, bank of england is going to be cautious.
i think the spreads, they will not go up one for one but they might go up if u.s. rates go up by 100 basis points, everyone else goes up by 20. that is a lot of dollar strength that would be built on that basis. anna: you brought the ecb into the conversation. we have a chart that shows the undervaluation of the euro. the undervaluation in the euro based on some early ecb data. what do you like -- look at to make this conclusion? this in relation to come as we got from navarro early on this week. n: the euro is cheap but there is a reason. you cannot make the argument that the euro should be at its ,roper valuation and then say the european economies are sluggish and the and the on a planet rates are high, you have the political and ongoing debt
concerns and parts of europe. there is a reason it is cheap. the question would be my ok, where do you think european interest rates should be because it is not just a question of how much coffee costs in new york versus paris. it is a question of capital flows -- what capital flows are emerging because of the policy structure. given the divergence in the economy i would say this is where the euro should be. manus: the ecb, this is the great debate, while the germans balk on the ecb and will their he edified? -- be a divide? steven: the ecb and mario draghi are determined to stay the course. he said we told you we would -- what we would do in 2017. we will examine it at the end based on conditions but this is what we see and what we are
going to do. i think the impact of the weak euro is easy to examine it -- to exaggerate the benefits. trade flows do not change that dramatically because your currency is week. you anticipate that something will be pat -- fashioned by the u.s. government either a border tax or something else that would comply with debbie chi overrules and will be able to stand and will push up the dollar, therefore? you can frame what is in the congressional plan was what is consistent with the wto. you are allowed to change the payroll taxes, you are allowed to change the payroll tax. everything that they say they're going to do is consistent with wto. you for joining us today. manus: that is it for daybreak.
