Results season has brought out a mixed bag for bank’s corporate finance divisions.

Banks were buffeted from debt worries in the US and eurozone in the west and the Japanese tsunami and nuclear crises in the east.

However, a number of institutions have managed to move into profit or reverse losses to enjoy a successful first half of 2011.

Almost unanimously, organisations have managed to stem the losses in non-trade related departments through increased trade finance and cash management business lines.

The depreciation of the US dollar, which lost around 5% against the euro and 1.3% against the yen over the quarter, was cited as one of the main causes for reduced revenues.
