Banks, Gros-Pietro: “There is nervousness, central banks give perspective”
“I saw that there is a tide” on the markets, but “the markets do their job. When there are variations they tend to accentuate them because they gain from accentuating the variations. But then they settle down.” Thus the president of Intesa Sanpaolo, Gian Maria Gros-Pietro, commented on the difficult day for bank stocks on the European stock exchanges on the sidelines of an event at the Biennale Democrazia. “These concerns – he added – demonstrate that there is nervousness and it is good that the central banks give messages instead of the reliability of their decisions, therefore that they are able to give some perspective”.
