In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Bank of the West Chief Economist Presents Global Growth Trends
Forecast highlights strong growth throughout much of Asia and notes continuing stresses in the Eurozone and the U.S.

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bank of the West Chief Economist Scott Anderson, was the keynote speaker at the 18th Annual Pacific Rim Dinner on Tuesday, December 11 in Pasadena, California. Anderson's remarks highlighted growth expectations across the Asian economies, the Eurozone's continuing recession and the impact of the global economy to the U.S.

"We're seeing stronger growth expectations across much of Asia, with China leading the way in 2013 and accelerating growth in Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea," said Anderson. "The Asian economies have so far remained relatively resilient to the European situation, though given the interconnectedness of world trade, we'll be watching closely to see what, if any, effect the continuing stresses of the West might have in parts of Asia."

More than 400 clients attended the event hosted by the Bank's Pacific Rim Banking Division, which has a large commercial portfolio including Asian immigrant and Asian American entrepreneurs and business owners who have operations in both the United States and in Asia.

Executive Vice President and Head of the Pacific Rim Banking Division Yukinori Nishio remarked that the division continues to perform well. Within the division, loans have increased by two percent and core deposits have grown by 10 percent compared to prior year-end.

"We're honored to host an event that shows our deep appreciation and respect for our clients," said Yukinori Nishio, head of the Pacific Rim Banking Division. "At the same time that we've gathered to honor these connections, we're also pleased to support our clients by providing valuable insight by one of the financial industry's well-known economists."

Other points from Anderson's presentation included highlights of the current U.S. economy:

  • Lower interest rates, falling gas prices and rising equity markets have bolstered consumer confidence to a five-year high.
  • Solid gains are being made on home sales, housing starts and home prices, suggesting that this housing recovery trend may continue.
  • U.S. job growth has rebounded in recent months, supporting consumer confidence and spending.

Even while some economic data showed an uptick, Anderson cautioned on the outlook for manufacturing and business spending.  "The number one risk in my 2013 forecast is the U.S. fiscal cliff and the tightening that could come through cuts in government spending and tax increases," said Anderson. 

Bank of the West Chairman and CEO Michael Shepherd and President and COO Maura Markus opened the evening with welcome and opening remarks on the importance of the dedicated Pacific Rim Banking Division and the special relationship that the Bank has with its Asian communities and business associates.
