Week InReview: March 24, 2023
Tech beats banks. Asian equities face declines after a tech-driven rally on Wall Street failed to ease the malaise hanging over the banking sector. Stock futures pointed to declines in Hong Kong, while those for Japan were little changed. US traders piled into top tech companies to push the Nasdaq 100 close to the threshold of a bull market. But banking stocks missed out on the rally, with a gauge of US financial heavyweights sinking to the lowest since November 2020 — even after Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told lawmakers the US would be prepared for further steps to protect deposits if needed. Short-dated Treasuries saw outsized moves for an 11th straight day.

Our members' clients include companies and labor unions, public and private pension plans, mutual funds and 401Ks, and individuals and families who depend on our firms to help them provide for their retirements, to have funds available to educate their family members, to meet other obligations, and to support their financial aspirations.

Our financial markets connect companies to investors and borrowers to lenders to help corporations create jobs, cities and states build needed roads, bridges, and schools, families finance homes and cars, and pension plans at all levels meet their obligations.
